The big news for 2009 is the arrival of the performance-oriented TTS trim later in the model year. New standard features on all TT Roadsters include an auxiliary audio input jack (deletes iPod interface options), SIRIUS Satellite Radio, Hill Hold Assist and a multi-function steering wheel. The 2.0T now features a manual soft top, with a power unit optional.
With an all-new version coming next year, the 2015 Audi TT Coupe and Roadster is the last chance to buy this generation of this sharp-looking 2-seater.
With impeccable build quality and excellent driving dynamics, and the TT offers year-round driving excitement in an aggressive and luxurious package that's reasonably priced considering the luxury brand. Two 2.0-liter turbocharged engines are available: the TT with 211 horsepower, or the TTS and its 265 horsepower version. Either way, the TT is no slouch, and its quattro all-wheel-drive system helps grip the road in a way competitors like the BMW Z4, Mercedes-Benz SLK and Porsche Cayman can't match. The Roadster's soft top isn't as convenient as a retractable hardtop, but it weighs less, and takes up less space.
