2017 Audi TT Overview

Is the 2017 Audi TT a Good Used Car?

The 2017 Audi TT is a good option if you’re shopping for a used luxury sports car. This Audi is available in coupe and convertible body styles, and it provides a fun driving experience without skimping on everyday comfort. It slices through corners with ease while maintaining a compliant ride over rough pavement. Its base turbocharged engine is punchy yet fuel-efficient. Inside, the TT boasts quality materials and user-friendly tech features. Still, the Audi TT has its drawbacks, including a tiny trunk in convertible models, and cramped rear seats in coupe models.

How Much Does the 2017 Audi TT Cost to Own?

The TT’s five-year costs for gas, insurance, repairs, and maintenance are projected to be $30,700, or around $6,150 per year. That’s lower than average for the luxury sports car class.

Is It Better to Buy a Used or New TT?

The price of a 2018 Audi TT starts at $43,950 and exceeds $64,900 in top trim levels. You can spend less for a used 2017 TT, and you won’t miss out on any new tech features. That said, if you’re looking for maximum performance, you may want to opt for the newer model. For 2018, Audi added a new TT RS variant that packs 400 horsepower.

There are quite a few less-expensive new sports cars options to choose instead of a used 2017 TT. The 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata starts at just $25,295, and it features razor-sharp handling and a well-dressed cabin. The 2018 Ford Mustang (starting at $25,680) offers big power in a finely tuned and well-rounded package.

Which Model Year of the Audi TT Is Best?

The third-generation TT debuted for the 2016 model year. There really isn’t a bad model year for the TT, but there are a few details worth considering. Opt for a 2017-or-newer model if you want Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Or, go with a 2018 model if you want the high-performance TT RS and its 400-horsepower five-cylinder engine.

You can save more money by shopping for a second-generation Audi TT (2008 to 2015). These models have a similarly polished ride and athletic handling, but they offer fewer advanced safety features and rather awkward infotainment controls.

Which Used Audi TT Model Is Right for Me?

The 2017 Audi TT is available in two trim levels: TT and TTS. Available in coupe and convertible body styles, the standard Audi TT has a 220-horsepower engine, all-wheel drive, a 12.3-inch infotainment screen, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, a satellite radio, keyless entry, push-button start, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, dual exhaust, and alloy wheels. Roadster versions add a power-folding soft top.

The higher-performance TTS (coupe only) has a 292-horsepower engine, and it adds upgraded brakes, larger wheels, an adaptive suspension, and quad exhaust. Available features for both models include a navigation system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a Bang and Olufsen stereo, blind spot monitoring, parking sensors, and Nappa leather seats.

Certified Pre-Owned Audi TT Warranty

Since the TT earns a poor predicted reliability rating, you may want to consider a certified pre-owned model. Audi CPO vehicles receive the balance of the original four-year/50,000-mile new-car warranty, then enjoy an additional one-year/unlimited mileage comprehensive warranty. The two warranties differ in important ways, and there may be additional services like roadside assistance, so read the Audi’s warranty page carefully. Audi CPO models must pass an inspection covering 300-plus points. Despite this extra coverage, rivals like Infiniti and Mercedes-Benz have more comprehensive certified pre-owned programs.

How Safe Is the TT?

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has published crash test results for the 2017 Audi TT.

All TT models come standard with a rearview camera. The available Technology package adds blind spot monitoring, plus front and rear parking sensors.

2017 Audi TT Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2017 Audi TT or 2017 Porsche Cayman?

The 2017 Porsche Cayman is hands down the superior luxury sports car. It accelerates more quickly and corners better than the TT, and it delivers an unparalleled sense of connection with the road. Still, the TT has its perks, including a lower average price. The TT coupe is also more practical than the Cayman, thanks to its four seats and hatchback cargo area. The Cayman only has two seats and a small trunk. For a convertible version, consider the Porsche Boxster, which offers much better performance than the TT convertible.

Which Is Better: 2017 Audi TT or 2017 BMW 2 Series?

The BMW 2 Series is a great pick among luxury small cars. Available as a coupe or a convertible, the 2 Series boasts a similarly upscale interior, user-friendly tech features, and strong turbocharged engine options. It tops the Audi when it comes to handling. Still, both of these models are fine options in their respective classes.

2017 TT Performance

How Does the 2017 Audi TT Drive?

The Audi TT has a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 220 horsepower. A six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and Quattro all-wheel drive are standard. The sportier TTS model has an upgraded version of this engine that makes 292 horsepower. Both models zip up to speed briskly and have ample passing power. The extra oomph from the TTS is noticeable, and it makes for a more exciting driving experience. The six-speed automatic transmission shows some slight hesitation when accelerating from a stop, but it delivers snappy shifts once you get going. Drivers can also change gears manually using shift paddles located behind the steering wheel.

The TT strikes a nice balance between ride quality and handling, which can be hit or miss in the luxury sports car segment. The Audi has responsive steering, and it feels stable when rounding turns. Its ride quality is firm but not harsh on rough roads, and the brakes are strong. The TTS feels a bit more athletic through turns. After all, it comes equipped with larger brakes and Audi’s magnetic ride system. This adaptive suspension can quickly stiffen or soften the TT’s shock absorbers on the fly.

Does the 2017 Audi TT Get Good Gas Mileage?

The TT gets an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, which is great fuel economy for a luxury sports car. The TTS earns a slightly lower 23/27 mpg (city/highway).

2017 TT Interior

How Many People Does the 2017 TT Seat?

The Audi TT is available in two body styles: coupe and roadster. The coupe seats four, and the roadster model has two seats and a power-folding soft top. Regardless of body style, the TT’s front seats are comfortable and nicely bolstered, and there’s ample head- and legroom for taller drivers. As you might expect, the coupe’s rear seats are cramped. There’s enough room for younger kids, but not adults. Heated and leather seats are standard.

The TT’s minimalist cabin is filled with quality materials. There’s padding in frequently touched areas, and most plastics and metallic accents have an upscale look and feel. Downsides include poor rear visibility (especially in roadster models) and intrusive wind noise at higher speeds.

How Many Car Seats Fit in the 2017 Audi TT?

The TT coupe has two full sets of LATCH connectors for securing child car seats.  

2017 Audi TT Features

The TT’s cutting-edge features help it stand out from the pack. Every TT comes equipped with Audi Visual Cockpit – a crisp 12.3-inch digital display that seamlessly marries the gauge cluster with the infotainment screen.

The display can be controlled using a rotary dial and touchpad on the center console, or by using buttons on the steering wheel. This may sound like a confusing layout, but it’s very user-friendly in practice. The system responds quickly to inputs.

Climate controls are similarly easy to use; you adjust the temperature and fan speed right on the vent itself. Other standard features include a rearview camera, satellite radio, and Bluetooth. Most available features are part of the Technology package, which adds navigation and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
