Sharp design; sharp handling; sharp acceleration
No TTS Roadster version; cup holders are small; no convenient cubby for a cellphone
Front-parking sensors join the rear sensors as standard equipment. The optional Technology package now includes a high-end B&O audio system. And a new S Line Competition package brings some cosmetic upgrades and a sportier suspension for the regular coupe and roadster. See the 2018 Audi TT models for sale near you
The 2018 Audi TT comes in coupe or 2-seater convertible (Roadster) form. The TTS is available solely as a coupe.
The TT coupe ($44,925) has 18-inch alloy wheels, full LED lighting, automatic rear spoiler, dual-exhaust tailpipes, heated windshield-washer nozzles, keyless entry/ignition, selectable driving modes, automatic climate control, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, rain-sensing wipers, parking sensors front and rear, heated front seats, leather/simulated suede (Alcantara) upholstery, heated/power-folding/self-dimming side mirrors, a self-dimming rearview mirror with a digital compass, a rearview camera, 8-way power-adjustable front seats, 50/50 split/folding rear seats, ambient LED cabin lighting, a storage drawer under the front passenger seat, Bluetooth and a 9-speaker audio system with satellite radio, two USB ports, two SD card slots and an auxiliary input.
The TT Roadster ($49,400) sports essentially the same equipment (minus the two rear seats), but naturally has a power-operated soft top, plus a powered wind defector, rollover hoops, and a microphone in the seat belt for voice control of the infotainment system.
An optional Technology package includes navigation, blind spot monitoring, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration and a Bang & Olufsen 680-watt/12-speaker audio system.
Other options include 19-in alloys and leather upholstery. The convertible also offers a neck-heating feature using warm air.
The TTS coupe ($53,925) comes with 19-in alloy wheels, adaptive suspension, quad-exhaust tips, sportier front seats and the more powerful engine.
The Black Optic appearance package for the TTS brings a black grille, black mirror housings and titanium-finish 20-in alloy wheels. The TTS is also eligible for the Technology package and full-leather upholstery.
Luggage space in the coupe is 12 cu ft. Those small rear seats fold to create a little more trunk area. The Roadster's trunk measures 7.5 cu ft. So stowage space is not a TT strength, but that comes with the high-style territory. If someone really wants to play golf, perhaps they should look at another car.

2018 BMW 2 Series -- The 2 Series has less visual impact than the TT, but it's so rewarding from the driver's seat.
2018 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class -- A retractable hard top means not having to decide between a coupe or a convertible. The rear-drive-only SLC (nee SLK) also comes in 362-hp SLC 43 AMG form.
2018 Mini Cooper S -- The front-drive Cooper S is quick and has more interior space to accompany its inimitable style.
2018 Porsche 718 Boxster -- The base 2.7-liter Boxster is a true sports car. And it gives away few (if any) fashion points.
2018 Porsche 718 Cayman S -- The regular Cayman is a fine alternative to the regular TT coupe, while a potential TTS buyer really ought to check out the 295-hp Cayman S.
