2005 Audi TT Overview
Overall User Score
Based on 6 reviews
No changes for the 2005 Audi TT. It still comes as either a Coupe or convertible Roadster, with three engine choices in each. The base model starts with the 1.8-liter, 4-cylinder, 180-hp turbocharged engine and 6-speed Tiptronic auto/manual shift and front-wheel drive. The 1.8-liter, 225-hp turbo engine is matched with a 6-speed manual transmission and quattro AWD. And, finally coming into its own performance-wise, the 3.2-liter, 250-hp turbo V6 and DSG auto/manual transmission boosts the TT's muscle and smooth shifting for optimal performance at top speeds. The 3.2 comes only with AWD.
The soft-top convertible is manual on the base model, but electric on the higher-horsepower engines. When it's down, it sucks up trunk space, leaving virtually no storage room. The trunk on the Coupe is surprisingly large, and with the rear seats folded down, is able to hold enough luggage for those fun weekend getaways the Audi was made for. For those who can't wait, the 2005 TT works great during the week too, with enough legroom and comfortable seats, plus good fuel economy to make it an abnormally fun commuter car, though the rigid suspension can feel still on city roads. Audi is known for luxurious interiors, and the 2005 TT makes sure you are pampered inside while getting your thrills on the outside. Standard leather seats, climate control, adjustable seats, power mirrors, and a Bose stereo keep you comfortable behind the wheel. Aluminum accents make it sleek and modern, and the red-illuminated dash adds some sporty flair.
Owners love the way the 2005 TT handles curves crisply and accurately. The car is perhaps too heavy for true sports car performance, but the quattro AWD makes amends by adding practicality and versatility to the TT, making it able to compete against snow and rough roads. Tight turning and precise cornering, as well as the smoothness of the DSG and power of the 3.2-liter V6 make this the preferred model. Owners love the trunk size and comfortable interior. Though the 3.2 is quick off the line, drivers report turbo lag in all other engines, and the tendency for the rear shelf to rattle. Road noise can be loud. On the wish list are power seats and better cupholder location. Audi customer service leaves a lot to be desired.
