New, more contemporary styling; all-wheel drive (3.2); fuel efficiency (2.0 T).
The all-new 2008 Audi TT is several inches longer and wider than the former TT, and much of this increase in size has been transferred to the interior.
The TT is offered as both a coupe and a roadster. The roadster has a power-retracting soft convertible top along with styling to match its slightly different roofline. The soft top can open in just 12 seconds and can actually be operated at up to 25 mph.
Two engines are offered on the TT. A 200-horsepower, 2.0L direct-injection four-cylinder engine is standard on the 2.0 T model, while 3.2 models get the 250-horsepower, 3.2L V6. 2.0 T models have front-wheel drive, while 3.2 models come with the quattro all-wheel-drive system. With the four-cylinder engine, the quick S tronic dual-clutch gearbox is standard. S tronic, which can function like a normal automatic transmission or be shifted manually without a clutch, can change gears in as little as 0.2 seconds. On V6 models, a six-speed manual transmission is also available.
The new TT is built on the aluminum-alloy Audi Space Frame, which helps reduce weight; the bodyshell weighs only 308 pounds. When equipped with the S tronic, the 3.2 quattro is actually faster than with the manual transmission, reaching 60 miles per hour in only 5.5 seconds; the four-cylinder takes as little as 6.3 seconds.
The all-wheel-drive system that comes with 3.2 quattro models sends 85 percent of engine torque to the front wheels for normal driving, but as needed it can send up to 100 percent to the back wheels. The TT's suspension has been completely redesigned and retuned versus the previous TT, and all models come with improved braking. On both models, in coupe or roadster form, a rear spoiler deploys at 75 mph and helps enhance stability.
A notable option is Audi Magnetic Ride, which allows for multiple suspension modes; the system uses fluid that alters the suspension's stiffness depending on the voltage applied. Head and thorax side air bags and front knee air bags are standard.
All TTs now come with automatic climate control, cruise control, a tilt/telescopic steering wheel, an automatic wind deflector, and a driver-information system. Several major packages are available, including an interior package with Nappa leather upholstery and trim, an audio package with an upgraded, 255-watt system, and an interior package that brings bright-colored schemes. Xenon headlamps with the adaptive cornering light function, to help with visibility on dark curvy roads, are also optional. Handsome 17-inch wheels are standard, but larger 18- and 19-inch alloys are available. An iPod interface is also now available.
After an absence for the 2007 model year, the Audi TT is back for 2008 and completely redesigned.
The 2008 Audi TT has been redesigned from the ground up and has an especially notable interior, which is roomier and more distinctive than in the previous model. Though the new TT is slightly larger, it's built with new weight-saving aluminum components so performance and fuel efficiency are still impressive. The all-weather aptitude of the 3.2 quattro model makes it an especially good choice for those in Snow Belt states.
