Expert Rating

5.0 (Excellent)
22 City / 31 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.


On it's debut the Audi TT stole the hearts of the critics and the driving public alike. However, almost 15 years have passed since that grand introduction, so Audi has had to work hard to keep the TT fresh and relevant in the 2012 marketplace.

In fact the TT has been the product of much hard work by Audi throughout the vehicle’s up and down lifespan. An instant icon of sleek styling at its launch, only to be lambasted during a manufacturer recall on safety grounds, the TT returned to plaudits such as nominations for North American Car of the Year. A massive rethink by Audi saw the TT second generation launched during the mid 2000’s to regain some ground lost to the likes of Nissan’s 370Z.

The 2012 TT is the refined result of much toil by Audi to ensure it remains a potent factor, both visually and from a driving perspective. Of course the TT’s styling is still as eye-catching as it ever was, and its subtly tweaked sleek lines are still the envy of the competition, so there’s no question that if aesthetics were your primary factor when deciding which car to buy, you’d choose the Audi every time. But should you judge this particular book by its cover, or would you be better off with a Mini or Porsche Boxter?

Well you certainly wouldn’t be disappointed by the TT. As you slip into the cabin you’re welcomed by a smart interior of leather, Alcantara and aluminum, all nicely laid-out and the perfect compliment to the exterior styling. One drawback is the rear seating arrangement – yes there is a rear ‘seat’ but in all honesty it’s so cramped that it’s all but useless for an adult to travel in comfort upon. Essentially the TT is a two-seater and as long as you aren’t planning on using it as a family transporter you’ll be happy.

Under the hood the TT also stacks up to its rivals, with a potent 2.0-liter turbocharged powerplant delivering 211 horsepower. For such a neat and light car this is more than capable of propelling it in very swift fashion.
