This is where the TT RS starts to become a little more challenging. The clean crisp lines of the standard car remain, but the extra detailing and complexity front and rear can make the RS look a little busy. The diminutive dimensions don’t leave much space for these ‘sporty’ details, although when specced right, the TT RS can look purposeful without being overwrought.
