The TT RS is a performance-focused sports coupe with little in the way of creature comforts - hell, it doesn’t even have dual-zone climate control or a forward-collision warning like even some modern vans do. Yet, where it falls short in the department of creature comforts, it excels in design and results on the street. A 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbo is standard, mated to a quattro all-wheel-drive system. A dual-clutch seven-speed auto is the only transmission option, and although a part of us yearns for the manual so we can pretend to be rally heroes from the 80s, the system works magnificently. LED lighting is standard, with a set of 19-inch wheels and a fixed rear spoiler adding to the occasion. Inside, it’s all quality materials and simplistic, elegant design, with Nappa leather, Alcantara, and brushed aluminum adorning almost every surface. An immersive yet intuitive 12.3-inch driver info display is the command point for most of the car’s functions, including infotainment, which can be upgraded to feature a 12-speaker B&O system. Heated power-adjustable seats are standard, along with an adaptive exhaust and keyless entry.
