  • Sharper dynamics, wonderful interior, best TT yet
  • Efficiency still trumps entertainment

There’s no mistaking an Audi TT for anything else. In common with iconic models like the Porsche 911 and MINI, the TT’s unique shape has evolved yet remained instantly recognisable.

The third-generation car has an almost identical length to the out-going version, but with a wheelbase that’s grown by 37mm, it has shorter overhangs and tauter looking proportions. At the front the single-frame grille, tapered bonnet lines and razor sharp headlights give a hint of the forthcoming second-generation Audi R8.

However, with rounded wheelarches, curved windscreen pillars, a bold shoulder line and a sloping rear tailgate, all the unmistakable TT styling cues are there to see. Sport models get 18-inch wheels as standard, and come with Xenon headlamps and LED running lights, while S line versions get a sportier look with 19-inch wheels, deeper side sills, unique bumpers and a gloss black grille.

Step up to the TTS and all the usual fast Audi styling treatment is on show. The famous aluminium-look mirror housings, unique bumper treatment and a rear diffuser mark it out, while the chrome grille slats give the nose a distinctive appearance. Like S line models, the LED headlights are standard.
