Overall Rating


With just 1 Trim on offer, the 2020 Audi TT coupe comes loaded with a host of features as standard and can house 4 people inside it. The 2.0L Inline 4 Turbocharged Motor is still the workhorse of the TT and you will find it coupled to Audi’s fantastic Quattro AWD System and a 7 Speed Slick Shifting Dual Clutch Transmission. Coming to the changes, you get additional safety features as standard, a New Orange color scheme and a bigger 20” Alloy wheel as an option. Speaking of the packages, you get 3 packages- S Sport Seat, S Line Competition and Technology packages, to suit the needs of the buyer as per his choices.

Since Audi hasn’t made major changes to the 2020 TT, you won’t find a major hike in the prices as well. At just $45,500, the Audi finds itself, battling against the likes of the Lexus RC 300, Mercedes-Benz C 300 and the BMW 430i Coupe.

Trim to choose?

The 2020 Audi TT Coupe, is available in just 1 trim. However, if you just pay $2,200 more, you can spec your TT with the S Line Competition package that adds some superb features like Virtual Cockpit, 20” Alloys and make your daily ride, a bit more informative and connected.

2020 Audi TT Engine and Performance

7.9/10

The 2020 Audi TT coupe stays mechanically unchanged from 2019. This means that you still get a turbocharged 2.0L inline-4 Motor, good for 220 hp and 258 pound-feet of torque. Transmission duties are performed by a 7-speed dual-clutch S Tronic with paddle shifters. The Transmission is slick-shifting, changes gears when you want it to and allows full manual control as well.

The Engine itself, may not be the most powerful unit here but the lightweight of the Audi and the Quattro AWD system, makes the TT a surprisingly cheerful car to drive. There is enough grunt on offer at all instances and the lightweight body of this coupe, adds to the fun of driving this coupe.

.*2019 Model Year figures used for reference purposes

Comparing the TT to its rivals, you will find that the TT is the least powerful among all. The C-300 takes top honors as far as numbers go. The Bimmer and the Lexus are locked at a dead heat, in terms of torque figures but the BMW takes lead in the power figure over the Lexus by the smallest of margins. 

How good is the acceleration of the TT Coupe?

Despite the power deficiency, the Audi TT takes just 5.2 seconds to reach the 60MPH and 13.6 Seconds to do the quarter-mile. Audi credits this to the TT’s low curb weight and the superb Quattro AWD setup that allows super-fast takeoff’s from a dead stop in no time at all.

The 2020 Audi TT takes just 5.2 seconds to reach the 60MPH

The signature performance is also reflected in the impressive wheel-turning power i.e. the Torque figures that are rated at 258 lb-ft. @ 1750rpm. The Audi TT. can reach a top speed of 130MPH as well.

Surprisingly enough, when you compare Audi’s acceleration figures with its other rivals, you will see that the Audi, triumphs ahead of the others by quite some margin, despite the lesser power figures. The competitors, lag behind the Audi, owing to their heft and their RWD systems that reduce the amount of traction, available at the beginning as compared to an AWD setup.

How well does the Audi TT ride and handle?

One of the main reasons, why a person buys a Coupe like the Audi TT, is because of it’s handling dynamics. The 2020 TT, doesn’t lose any of its famed handling characters or any of that persona. Audi has used all their expertise of racing throughout these years, in developing and fine-tuning their Quattro system and that is evident in the TT as well. The Grip and Traction levels on offer in the Audi are super impressive and the precise steering and lightweight body, adds to the fun of cornering this little coupe. The Body roll is very well contained and you won’t have any problems, swerving through traffic out on the motorway.

The 2020 Audi TT Front View

Talking of the Ride Quality, it’s mostly on the softer side and despite its sporty credentials, the TT will easily glide over most potholes and undulations with the utmost ease. For customers, who would want a bit more sporty ride from their Audi, can spec the same with the S Line Competition package that stiffens the suspension and adds sportier wheels and some other tweaks to make the ride, even more, fun.

What about the Braking performance of the TT Coupe?

With the largest ever brakes ever used on a TT, the braking performance of this coupe is just exemplary in a lot of ways. Weighing just 3200 lbs, the Audi works like a charm not only on the tracks but also on the city streets. The brake pedal is extremely precise and direct, much like the steering as well.

The 2020 Audi TT Front Brake 12.3 in.

There is good heat dissipation from the brakes and the brakes cool down quite quickly, irrespective of how long you have been using them. Brakes don't fade that easily and you have a lot of feedback on offer at all times.

The braking performance of all the coupes listed here can be termed decent in overall respect. While the Merc and the Bimmer, showcase brilliant stopping figures when stopping from 70MPH, the Lexus isn’t far behind either. However, it’s again the Audi that takes top honors, owing to its AWD system and lightweight nature.

2020 Audi TT Fuel Economy

7.9/10

The Audi TT, may not be the most powerful coupe on the block. However, if you ponder on the table below, you will understand the benefits of the same. With an impressive 26MPG of mileage overall and a 14.5-gallon tank, the 2020 Audi TT Coupe, can do at least 334 miles on a full tank and 450 miles at best. This is impressive, considering that the Audi has a standard AWD setup while the others have an RWD setup.

Taking all coupes into perspective and you will find that the C 300, manages to outrun the BMW 430i, in the range department. The Lexus comes in 3rd here and the Audi, despite its superb MPG figures, has to suffice with the last spot.

2020 Audi TT Interior

8.6/10

While we have praised the Audi so far in terms of its handling and performance, sadly, the same can’t be said about the Seating and comfort. The Seats offer decent levels of cushioning and contouring and the cabin quality feels upmarket. However, sit on the rear seats and you will feel claustrophobic, in no time at all. Hence, despite being a 4 seater, we expect you to make your foes occupy the rear seats or your kids. 

The 2020 Audi TT Dashboard

With premium materials on most of the console, you can ignore the plastic bits that litter the cabin. Build Quality is something that needs a mention here as it’s top-notch, with very little inconsistencies or panel gaps throughout the cabin.

Comparing the Audi with its rivals and you will find that the German counterparts of the Audi, offer a lot more space on both the front row and on the rear as well. That is because of the larger dimensions of those cars and the relatively smaller ones of the Audi. The Lexus is bigger on space than the Audi but eventually, loses out to the other German duo.

How good is the infotainment system?

The infotainment system on use in the 2020 TT is not just good but ranks as one of the best in the segment. Audi has been constantly updating it’s MMI Infotainment system every year and for 2020, Audi has made improvements to the same as well. You get a slightly more responsive and intuitive system and with all the bells and whistles, that you would want from a Car of this category. You can also get the MMI Plus system and Android Auto, Apple Car Play by upgrading to the Technology package.

  • Bluetooth Telephony and Audio
  • Homelink powered Garage door opener
  • Rearview Camera
  • Front and Rear parking sensors

What about the Cargo space on offer?

With its relatively compact proportions, it’s no surprise that the 2020 Audi TT, packs in a low cargo area. In the interiors as well, we miss the cubby holes and storage spaces that can be found in other coupes of this segment.

The 2020 Audi TT 's Cargo Volume is 12.0 cu.ft

However, with features like 50/50 split-folding rear seats and under-seat storage, you do get a decent amount of space that will be enough for your daily errands or shopping.

While all the rivals of the TT coupe are on the same page, when it comes to the storage capacity, it’s the BMW that shines the brightest here. The Bimmer stands atop all of its adversaries in the cargo area department, followed by the Audi and the Merc and Lexus respectively.

Creature comforts on offer? 

Audi has been famed for offering plenty of features on the inside of all their cars and the 2020 Audi TT, is certainly no different either. You have all kinds of conveniences in terms of adjusting the seats, power windows, and leather upholstery. 

  • Automatic Climate Control

Long gone are the days when the Audi TT looked like a tortoise with wheels, the TT now has sharp stylized lines running along the length of the car and blend in smoothly into the LED Daytime running lights. The tiny coupe is only 165-inches long, much shorter than even the Porsche 718. However, it sits taller than most of its rivals and hence, has a relatively higher center of gravity. 

The 2020 Audi TT 3 Quarter View

The compact proportions of the Audi make for a sporty ride irrespective of where you take it. It also allows for ease of parking in crowded parking spaces and maneuvering through tight spaces in the city as well. The flip side is the fact that the Audi isn’t the most spacious on the inside and feels kinda compact.

When comparing these coupes, you will find that the Lexus is the longest of all the coupes here and is followed by the German duo of the Bimmer and the Merc, tied at a dead heat. In terms of width on offer, all the coupes here have the same girth but it’s the Merc, that you have to be least bothered for scratches when traveling through tight spaces. However, the long wheelbase of the Merc makes it the least sportier of the lot while tackling corners.

Noteworthy features on offer?

With the 2020 Audi TT Coupe, Audi has pulled out all stops to ensure that the TT looks modern and sleek from any angle that you look at. That has been made possible by the use of some sharp character lines, all throughout its body and modern features. Some of the highlights include

  • Rain/Light Sensor for automatic windshield wipers and headlights
  • Fully Automatic LED Headlights 
  • LED Taillights with Dynamic Turn Signals
  • Power-Adjustable, auto-dimming, power-folding, heated ORVM’s
  • Dual Exhaust Outlets
  • 20” Alloy Wheels

2020 Audi TT Safety

9.9/10

Safety is a major concern for car buyers around the world and Audi is on the forefront, of addressing the same. With each passing year, Audi is incorporating and standardizing a lot of Safety features in all their Cars and the 2020 TT Coupe, follows the same suit as well. Even though IIHS and NHTSA haven’t tested the 2020 Audi TT Coupe, we do have the list of Safety features that the Audi comes loaded with to ensure the peace of mind of the passengers.

Standard safety features on offer

  • Front dual-stage airbags, front thorax side airbags, knee airbags, and head curtain airbags

2020 Audi TT Competition

8.5/10

Audi TT Coupe vs. Lexus RC 300 Coupe

The Lexus RC 300 Coupe, has been offering stiff competition to the Audi TT coupe, for quite some time now. Both these cars are well-engineered, have impressive build and will stand the test of time better than most other coupes. The Audi however, has a longer list of features as standard but the Lexus has a long list of driver assistance and safety features. The Lexus is spacious of the duo but is the slower one as well. It’s difficult to choose between one of these 2 cars but if you want something that is both sporty, good on features and won’t burn a hole in your pocket, then the Audi should be your pick.

Audi TT Coupe vs. Mercedes-Benz C 300 Coupe 

In the battle of the Germans, you will find it difficult to choose between one of the 2. However, both cater to different audiences in some ways. The Merc is for those, who would want a comfortable commute from their office to home and vice-versa and be able to ferry your family of 4 with ease. The Audi, on the other hand, is a bit more sporty and is best suited for just 2 adults or 2 adults with 2 children at best. You won’t be disappointed with both of these coupes but if comfort is your preference, the Merc should be your choice, otherwise, it’s the Audi that should be your pick.

Audi TT Coupe vs. BMW 430i Coupe

In this battle of the Teutons, it will be very hard to choose between one of these 2 coupes. The BMW is the sharper, agile and fun to drive coupe of the duo. It also offers better space for its occupants and looks a bit sportier as well. However, Audi takes the lead in Mileage, comfort, and pricing. You won’t go wrong with buying any of these 2 coupes and we can’t exactly pick a clear winner. However, if a sporty coupe is your preference, the Bimmer will suit you the best but if you want the Jack of all trades, the Audi should be your choice.

2020 Audi TT Final Verdict

Couple that, with Audi’s superb Quattro system and you will enjoy every ride that you take in this coupe. Unless you want to ferry your family with all your drives or would want to punish your kids for a wrongdoing, the Audi TT will definitely solve all your purposes and be a good daily driver.
