2015 Audi TT

What's new for 2015? Though a fully redesigned TT is set to debut next year, the 2015 Audi TT coupe and convertible continue on essentially unchanged. The only noteworthy update is the addition of standard heated front seats.

The appeal of the 2015 Audi TT is easy to see. Just look at it: Nothing else on the road looks quite like it. Though Audi has softened and evolved it over the years, the avant-garde styling of both the coupe and convertible TT remains a strong reason for most buyers. One feature of the TT that's less evident, but perhaps an even more compelling reason for its consideration, is standard all-wheel drive. For those who can't afford both a small, sporty everyday driver (or weekend convertible) and a winter-weather war horse, the Audi TT stands alone as the model that satisfies both at an affordable price. Overall, though, the 2015 TT should satisfy buyers desiring a peppy sport coupe or convertible with an upscale vibe.

Exterior Highlights
2+2 coupe or a two-seat convertible, both available in a single trim level

The 2015 Audi TT is a 2+2 coupe or a two-seat convertible, both of which are offered in a single trim level.

Standard equipment includes 18-inch wheels, automatic xenon headlights with washer jets and LED running lights, heated mirrors, cruise control, automatic climate control, heated leather front seats with simulated suede inserts and eight-way power adjustment (with four-way power lumbar), a tilt-and-telescoping multifunction steering wheel with shift paddles, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth phone connectivity, and a 12-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system with a CD player, satellite radio and auxiliary audio jack. The convertible features a fully powered soft top.

The optional Navigation system Plus adds rear parking sensors, a navigation system, real-time traffic, an iPod interface, a driver information display and a lap timer. The S Line Plus Carbon option yields 19-inch matte-black wheels, carbon-fiber exterior and interior styling and trim details, and upgraded leather upholstery (the convertible includes leather-wrapped roll hoops). Two special upholstery packages are additionally available: Fine Napa Leather or Baseball Optic Leather.

Handsome inteior, well-laid out gauges and controls, comfortable front seats, high-quality materials, prominant side bolsters, soft top convertible

Like other Audis, the 2015 TT offers a handsome interior done up in high-quality materials. In general, gauges and controls are well laid out and straightforward to operate. Front seats are comfortable, and the prominent side bolsters and simulated suede inserts offer good support during enthusiastic driving. The convertible's soft top might not be as slick as the retractable hardtops on some competitors, but it's lighter, less complex and hard to find fault with a multilayer lid that does a flawless job of sealing out the elements. It also stows in about 15 seconds when it's time for some open-air motoring.

The soft top's other advantage over flashier retractable hardtops is that it doesn't greatly limit cargo capacity when it's down. While the convertible's 8.8 cubic feet of cargo capacity might not sound like much, it's actually not bad by roadster standards. That said, the coupe offers greater flexibility by virtue of its large hatchback opening and 13.1-cubic-foot capacity. If that's not enough, simply flip the rear seatbacks forward to expand the cargo hold to 24.7 cubic feet.

Standard safety features on the 2015 Audi TT include traction and stability control, antilock disc brakes, hill-hold assist, front knee airbags and front side airbags that protect occupants' heads and abdomens. Models equipped with the optional navigation system also have rear parking sensors. A rearview camera is not available.
