2022 audi tts coupe

Select a year

  • Highs Eye-catching looks, energetic driving experience, fuel efficient for a sports car.
  • Lows Less powerful than rivals, small rear seat, few available driver-assistance features.
  • Verdict The TT is neither a practical choice nor a sensational sports car, but both coupe and convertible models look great and are satisfying to drive.
By Joey Capparella


The Audi TT established itself as a style icon with its memorable first-generation design, and the current third-generation TT remains stylish today. But it is also only sporty-ish when compared to other more hard-core two-door sports cars such as the Toyota Supra or Porsche 718. It’s available in coupe and convertible bodystyles and offers either a base 228-horsepower TT or a more powerful 288-hp TTS model. (We review the high-performance TT RS separately.) Even though it’s not made for the racetrack, the TT is fun to drive; all-wheel drive is standard, as is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission—but there’s no manual transmission, sadly.

What's New for 2022?

Audi has added an optional bronze-themed appearance package that includes bronze 20-inch wheels, bronze interior trim pieces, and contrasting stitching for the leather seats and other interior bits.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

    The TT is more about looks than outright performance, so we would opt for the base TT coupe rather than the more expensive TTS. (If you really want a powerful TT, go with the thrilling five-cylinder TT RS with nearly 400 hp.) Audi added lots of standard equipment for 2021, so the only option we’d consider for a 2022 model is the 19-inch wheel package, which includes summer performance tires.

    Engine, Transmission, and Performance

    A turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine lives under the hood of the TT, and it generates 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The TTS gets a beefed-up version of this engine that's tuned to deliver 288 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque. Both cars use a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission with Quattro all-wheel drive. Whether you choose the TT or the TTS, you'll enjoy responsive handling.

    Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

    The EPA has not yet rated the 2022 TT. Last year, both body styles of the Audi TT achieved fuel economy of 23/31 mpg city/highway. That makes the TT a more fuel-efficient choice than rival sports cars such as the Porsche 718 Cayman (21/27 mpg). For the 2021 TTS, the EPA estimated gas mileage of 23/29 mpg. For more information about the TT's fuel economy, visit the EPA's website.

    Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

    Both the TT and TTS provide cabins that are temples of chic minimalism. The design is graceful and contemporary, and premium materials are used throughout. The front seats offer more comfort than you'd expect from a small sports car. Technically, this coupe model seats four, but the cramped rear seat is best left for luggage and grocery bags. There's also dearth of storage nooks within the cabin. The convertible variant of this Audi provides 8 cubic feet of cargo space, while the coupe offers 12 cubic feet.

    Infotainment and Connectivity

    Navigation, a premium audio system, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are all standard equipment. Interestingly, the TT does without a central display screen or touchscreen, instead displaying infotainment functions in the digital gauge cluster in front of the driver. Most of these functions are controlled by buttons on the steering wheel.

    Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

    Audi's TT and TTS are not available with forward-collision warning, automated emergency braking, or drowsy-driver monitoring. These features are standard or optional on many of the TT's closest competitors. For more information about the TT's crash-test results, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) websites. Key safety features include:

    • Standard front and rear parking sensors
    • Standard blind-spot monitoring

    Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

    Audi's warranty coverage is equal to the protection offered by rival luxury brands such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz.

    • Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
    • Powertrain warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
    • No complimentary scheduled maintenance
