2008 Audi TT Overview

The Audi TT enters its next generation with some updates to enhance its handling and road performance, in an effort to make it behave on the inside more like the sports car it appears to be on the outside. Still sporting the landmark domed design that cocoons passengers in sleek, luxurious comfort, the 2008 TT is actually 5 inches longer and 3 inches wider than the first generation. It features Audi's controversial wide-mouthed grille and new standard 19-inch wheels. Its curvy body is made of an aluminum and steel combination. The aluminum helps lighten the heavy sports car, while the steel frame in the back gives more supportive and controlled handling.

The 2008 TT will be offered initally as a Coupe, to be followed by a Roadster later in the year. Only two engines are offered - the new 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder, direct fuel injection (FSI) turbo at 200 hp and the holdover 3.2-liter, 250-hp V6. The 2.0 engine comes only in front-wheel drive, while the 3.2 will offer quattro all-wheel drive. Both come standard with a 6-speed manual or optional S-tronic double-clutch sequential manual transmission, similar to those used by race car drivers. The improved engine power and innovative powertrain means better in-town performance and hill-climbing capabilities in addition to the expert highway handling exhibited by the TT.

Other changes to look forward to are an improved rear suspension and the imminent arrival of the variable air suspension later in the year, which adjusts ride height according to road conditions. A new rear spoiler pops up at speeds greater than 75 mph. Also in the works is an RS version of the TT, with the 3.2-liter V6 tweaked to get 350 hp. Inside, all the standard luxuries of Audi abound, with the addition of the central MMI control interface and optional navigation system, Bluetooth capability, and a parking assist system. The coupe's trunk is still large and practical for storage, and the aluminum-accented dash controls are well laid out.

Early reviews love the power, sporty look, and quattro performance, but wish it had more audible grunt and road feel for the driver. Audi's influential sports car continues to turn heads with its still-modern design, and it seems to be adding the performance components to make it a nice speedster for 2008.
