2022 Audi TT Coupe Review: Continues To Impress

The Audi TT was a style icon of the late nineties and early 2000s, but despite having come along two decades ago, today's model has remained stylish and fresh despite still retaining an unmistakable shape. It's become one of the best small luxury sports cars out there, and its 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is more than capable of providing fun and refinement. With 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, it's not the fastest car out there, while its $50,000 price tag can also scare away some. However, it's built brilliantly, looks and feels properly premium, and handles beautifully. Is that enough to keep it at the front of the pack, or are rear-wheel-drive rivals like the Toyota GR Supra and BMW Z4 better alternatives?

Audi is offering a new Bronze selection package for 2022, but only on the TTS, which we assess in its own review. As for the normal TT, nothing much changes at all, except for a reshuffling of the available paint colors and options. Its price increases by $700.

Handling and Driving Impressions

Before you let earlier comments about this car's handling lead you to believe that it sticks like it's on rails, let's just clarify: the TT has its limits, and they are easily found. However, they are also higher up than you may expect. There's no doubt that this car's RWD rivals are better balanced and feel more lively in all the right ways, but the all-wheel grip of the TT combines with its short wheelbase very nicely. As a Haldex system and not a proper quattro AWD setup, the front wheels will always get favored and the result can be a bit of understeer. The other side of the coin is that when the car is coaxed into a slide intentionally, all it takes is a little faith, a flat right foot, and a pair of hands that can keep the front wheels aimed straight along the road and the TT will do a great job of pulling itself straight. Fortunately, it's not too difficult to tell when the front tires are giving up despite the sharp steering setup's lack of true feel. In all other respects, from body roll to ride comfort and braking, the TT is well rounded and holds its own.

Verdict: Is the 2022 Audi TT A Good Car?

The Audi TT is neither ruled by its competitors nor is it ahead of the competition. It's rather low on safety tech, has tiny rear seats, and doesn't offer a long list of convenience features. It's also not the most engaging thing on the planet, with a dull exhaust note, an overworked turbocharger that runs out of puff at high revs, and a tendency to understeer when you don't know what you're doing and going a little too fast. Nevertheless, direct rivals are few and far between, and for those that fear RWD cars or care little for all the finer nuances of a well-sorted chassis, the TT is brilliant. Sure, others may handle better, but the TT is no slouch and is a lot of fun to drive. Furthermore, it's standard with all the features you could really want and still looks absolutely stunning. If you're on the fence, a test drive may sway you either way, but as noncommittal as our answer to the above question may sound, the TT is anything but average and is indeed a great car.

2022 Audi TT Coupe vs Toyota GR Supra

Like the TT, the base version of the Munich-influenced Toyota Supra is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-banger and isn't available with a manual gearbox. However, the Supra is far more affordable with a base price of just $43,190. In addition, the RWD sportster has higher outputs, producing 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. The eight-speed auto in this car is also one of the best around, and this engine will happily sing a little higher without making you feel like you've lost acceleration. In the Audi's favor is its cabin, which, despite its age, is still incredibly beautiful, whereas the Supra's use of BMW bits (although clean) looks very bland by contrast. Naturally, the Supra is far more fun to drive and can be exploited by even the novice without an expensive phone call to the insurance company following shortly after. As a sports car, the Supra is better, but as a style icon and a car that just does what you expect without any fuss, the TT has its merits too.

2022 Audi TT Coupe vs Audi TTS Coupe

For just ten grand more, you can upgrade to the Audi TTS. It's also got a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with just four cylinders, but this one comes with the IS38 turbo found in the Golf R and S3. As a result, the TTS produces 288 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque while offering the same fuel economy in comparison. In addition, the TTS stands out a little more thanks to aluminum-look mirror caps, a quad-exit exhaust system, a more aggressive front fascia, and unique interior upgrades. These include a suede steering wheel, red accents, and splashes of carbon fiber. It also gets access to a brand-new Bronze exterior appearance package but its standard features are largely identical to those of the regular TT. The TTS is a standard TT, but more so, and the ability to get to 60 mph in under four and a half seconds makes it properly exciting. Given the choice, we'd rather have the TTS.
