Review: 2019 Audi TT Roadster review

The 20th Anniversary Edition offers many fashionable design ideas for the TT 2019 model, based on the initial concept of the 1995 TTS Roadster. Aviator Gray or Nimbus Gray are the only body colors on offer - the last exclusive for the USA - with a matte silver Audi logo on the back side sills.

The 20th Anniversary, accessible both as a coupe and as a roadster, features the original OLED taillights, which are currently mounted on the TT RS, as well as stainless steel tailpipes and 19-inch wheels with five spokes. The general appearance looks quite attractive, even if the existing TT is not half the fashionista, which was its predecessor.

Inside, brown leather seats with contrasting yellow stitching are unique to the 20th Anniversary car and should be a kind of modern interpretation of the interior of a baseball glove from the original TT.

Sadly, the technology of driver assistance is practically absent. The newest features such as adaptive cruise control, blind spot control and assistance in maintaining a lane are not found anywhere on the 2019 TT.

The TT Coupe appears with a four-seater configuration, although the back seats are better suited for grocery bags than people. In the TT roadster, the back seats are dropped, so there is room for a soft top to be removed, although it really eats into the cargo space. The boot capacity is 7.5 cubic feet.

The interesting thing is that the 20th Anniversary Edition is based on the TT, and not on the hotter models TT S or TT RS. Hence, power comes from a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged motor with a capacity of 228 horsepower and torsion of 258 lb-ft, coupled with a seven-speed automatic transmission with dual clutch. Quattro four-wheel drive moves power between all four wheels, and Audi claims that the TT roadster can speed up to 60 miles per hour in 5.5 seconds.

After some initial delay, the motor provides you with a mid-range bang. The gearbox is sometimes lazy to change gears in normal mode, but switches the switch to Sport mode, and everything clearly becomes more flexible. The oars installed on the steering wheel produce fast gear changes on their own, but small plastic flippers click and do not satisfy their actions. This matter is also not unique to TT. Audi could fit the best oars of almost all of its sports cars - even the R8.

The 2019 TT coupe costs between $ 44,900 and the TT roadster from $ 48,400, not including the destination. If you want to get the 20th anniversary, you are looking for $ 52,900 or $ 56,800, respectively. If you haven’t chosen for limited edition, the $ 53,800 TT S Coupe is another option, just for excellent performance.

Audi 2019 year - a very good car, but only in the middle set for a small class of luxury roadsters. And although it was easy to overlook the dynamic flaws of the original TT, as it was so damn good - a rotating sculpture of modern art - the modern version does not have the same support, even if it is possible that it is better to manage.
