2021 Audi TT Coupe Review: Perfectly Balanced

Most sports cars are prescribed a very brazen aesthetic and are typically heavily over-styled, leaving no doubt in the mind of their proficiency and high-end status. The 2021 Audi TT Coupe bears a more suave aesthetic, however - one that conveys its pleasantly clement and more sophisticated performance character. Humming beneath the TT Coupe's hood is a 2.0-liter turbo inline-4 engine that, along with a 7-speed automatic transmission, imbues all four wheels with up to 228 horsepower. Competitors such as the Mazda MX-5, Nissan 370Z, and Toyota GR Supra are all far more proficient and entertaining, but the TT stands out for its unique, modern design and well-rounded luxury characteristics. It's pleasant yet confident conduct, meticulously balanced performance, and premium, high-tech cabin make the TT Coupe a very gratifying everyday sports car. Some may prefer the drive dynamics of its competitors, and others may be turned away by the exclusion of standard smartphone connectivity, but to many, what the 2021 Audi TT Coupe offers is peerless.

2021 Audi TT Coupe Changes: πŸš™What’s the difference vs 2020 Audi TT Coupe?

There aren't many changes for the TT going into the 2021 model year, but the ones that have been made will please buyers. The sports car now comes with S sport seats trimmed in Fine Nappa leather, navigation, blind-spot monitoring, a premium Bang & Olufsen sound system, and all-season tires as standard. 19-inch wheels wrapped in summer tires are now a standalone option instead of a part of a package deal. Finally, two new paint options have been added to the palette.

Pros and Cons

  • Suave, contemporary design
  • Modern and upscale interior
  • Surprisingly useful trunk space
  • Brimming with advanced tech
  • Thrifty fuel economy returns
  • Not quite as entertaining as rivals
  • The rear seats are pretty much useless
  • Smartphone connectivity isn't standard

Engine and Transmission

Beneath the slick hood of the suave TT Coupe is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged gas engine that ignites the sports car with up to 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. A polished and intuitive 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission commands the engine's outputs to the TT's quattro all-wheel drive system. The powertrain is just perfect for the compact coupe, delivering smooth and instantaneous responses from right off the line all the way through to commencing high- speed overtakes. It's at the TT's mid-range, however, where the engine exhibits its best showing as power responses become even more precise and linear throughout the broad torque band.

Verdict: 🏁Is the 2021 Audi TT Coupe a good car?

Though it may not be one of the most proficient or entertaining 2-door sports cars in the USA, the 2021 Audi TT Coupe is still a very pleasurable, poised, and efficient vehicle to hoon about or cruise in on an everyday basis. It looks better than ever in its sporty and contemporary third-generation guise and its cabin oozes modernism and luxury by virtue of the avant-garde virtual cockpit display and minimalist design philosophy. There are numerous creature comforts, conveniences, and advanced driver-assist features that come as standard, too, but some may be let down by the fact that Audi doesn't include Android Auto nor Apple CarPlay functionality as standard. No official crashworthiness or safety review of the 2021 Audi TT Coupe has been conducted so it carries no safety rating. There have been no recalls sent out for the latest generation of the TT Coupe, however, so it can be assumed to have top-notch reliability standards.

The Mazda Miata MX-5, Nissan 370Z, and Toyota GR Supra are all better options for the avid car and driving enthusiasts, but the TT Coupe offers a unique and very favorable balance in performance, capability, and luxury.

πŸš—What Audi TT Coupe Model Should I Buy?

The starting price of the 2021 Audi TT Coupe comes in at $49,800, which can be increased by way of optional packages. For an enhanced aesthetic flair and improved handling dynamics, the S Line Competition Package is a good pick; it adds a three-spoke multifunction flat-bottom S Line steering wheel, leather/Alcantara seating upholstery, a Sport drive mode, and an S Line sport-tuned suspension. We'd also recommend throwing in the Technology Package for the added Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, MMI Navigation Plus, and a premium 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen surround-sound audio system.
