2014 Audi TT Overview

Is the 2014 Audi TT a Good Used Car?

If you want a luxury sports car for blistering acceleration and jackknife handling, the Audi TT is not the best option for you. Its classmates dash up to speed more quickly and snake through turns with better finesse. However, if you’re just looking for a head turner with a classy interior, the TT will do.

Used 2014 Audi TT Performance and Interior

The Audi TT features two versions of a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, each paired with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. In the base TT Coupe and Roadster (convertible) models, the turbo-four produces 211 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. With TTS models, output increases to 265 horsepower. With many rivals offering over 300 horsepower, the TT comes up short in the power department. There’s also no option for a manual gearbox. 

Still, fun can be had behind the wheel. The Audi TTS accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph. With standard all-wheel drive, the TT feels composed around turns, but its reflexes are duller than most other luxury sports cars. The ride is responsive yet not overly firm. Fuel economy is typical for the class at 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.

The TT boasts high-end materials, a stylish cabin design, and comfortable front seats. The Audi TT Coupe is a 2+2, which essentially means it has two rear seats that are barely usable for passengers. Roadster models seat only two. Suede and leather seats come standard, and Nappa leather upholstery is available. Power-adjustable front seats come standard, and some models also have heated front seats.

Standard features include automatic climate control, a 12-speaker Bose audio system, satellite radio, and Bluetooth. The TT is available with iPod integration and navigation, the latter of which has awkward controls and cumbersome menus. Otherwise, audio and climate controls are legible and a breeze to adjust while driving.

Should I Consider Another Used TT?

The second generation of the Audi TT includes the 2008 through 2015 model years. In 2011, Audi refreshed the TT’s styling and gave it a bump in horsepower. For a high-powered TT RS trim, buyers must consider a 2012 or 2013 model (the TT RS was not offered for the next few model years). Audiophiles will appreciate the 2014 model’s standard Bose stereo system, while those in colder climes should consider the 2015 TT for its standard heated seats.

Which Used Audi TT Is Right for Me?

First, decide whether you want a Coupe or a Roadster (convertible). Then, choose between the TT and TTS. The base TT’s engine has less horsepower than the TTS’, which performance enthusiasts will notice. 

You may also want to consider a certified pre-owned TT. Audi CPO vehicles receive the balance of the original four-year/50,000-mile new-car warranty, then enjoy an additional two-year/50,000-mile comprehensive warranty. The two warranties differ in important ways, and there may be additional services like roadside assistance, so read the Audi warranty page carefully. Audi CPO models must pass an inspection covering 300-plus points.

2014 Audi TT and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2014 Audi TT or 2014 Porsche Boxster?

The Porsche Boxster convertible and the very similar Porsche Cayman (a fixed hardtop coupe) are better options than the TT. For starters, the Boxster and Cayman offer better performance, including a base engine with similar power to the TTS’ turbo-four. The Porsches’ larger available engine puts out even more power. These Porsche models also have sharper handling and a firm yet comfortable ride. They earn among the best reliability ratings in its class. Both Porsches come standard with an infotainment system, which is something you’ll have to pay extra for in the Audi.

Which Is Better: 2014 Audi TT or 2014 Nissan GT-R?

The Nissan GT-R is one of the most powerful cars in its class, producing up to 600 horsepower. Unlike the TT, the GT-R has pinpoint handling and an adjustable suspension. Although its interior isn’t as nice as the TT’s, the GT-R boasts more standard features, like a rearview camera and navigation. The only reason to skip the GT-R in favor of the TT is the massive price difference; you could buy two TTs for the price of one GT-R. For many, that takes the GT-R off the table.
