At 31 MPG highway and 23 in-town, this coupe offers great fuel economy and a style of ride that only comes with Audi. On the outside, boldly redesigned exterior lines give the 2012 Audi TT a remarkably sleek and sporty look. 18” aluminum-alloy wheels and an automatic retractable spoiler add to the sporty feel of the new TT. The retractable spoiler automatically emerges at speeds over 75 MPH to improve handling. At speeds under 50 MPH, the spoiler will detract into the rear end of the car. LED daytime running lights coupled with HID xenon headlights allow the driver to have full vision of the road ahead, no matter the time of day. For snowy days, the windshield wipers are heated, so you won’t have to worry about the wipers freezing to the glass.
Inside the cabin Audi has provided extreme luxury with French-stitched leather seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel that’s flat on the bottom to provide easy maneuvering of the wheel. The steering wheel also has shift paddles, allowing the driver to change gears with the flick of their thumb. The steering wheel-mounted controls provide access to cruise control, audio settings and Bluetooth capabilities. With Audi’s generous free trial of Sirius XM satellite radio, consumers can rock out through the Bose audio system with AudioPilot. Lumbar supported power adjustable seats and climate control ensure that the driver and front passenger ride in as much comfort and luxury as possible. Heated seats on those frigid winter days don’t hurt the luxurious feel of the TT either. The rearview mirror has automatic dimming technology, which senses when reflections of lights are too bright and dims the mirror. This will save the eyes of drivers who would otherwise be blinded by those bothersome brights in the rearview. The remote transmitter from HomeLink, will not only control your garage door, but can even be set to turn on the lights in your house, before you even step out of the car. All this is part of Audi’s commitment to providing some of the most innovative and advanced cars on the market.
Under the hood of the 2012 Audi TT is a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, direct-injection engine with variable valve timing. This engine can go from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.3 seconds, is able to obtain 211 ponies and has a top speed of 130 MPH. Magnetic ride, independent front and rear suspensions, Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control make the TT one of the smoothest and most fun coupes to drive. The S-tronic automatic transmission with Launch Control allows consumers to reap the benefits of both an automatic and manual transmission. It also comes with perforated front disc brakes and solid rear disc brakes, ensuring the driver will have full control, even when slamming on the brakes. The hill-hold assist technology makes sure that the TT doesn’t roll backwards when stopped on a steep incline.
So if you’re looking for an eye-catching, luxurious, comfortable and convenient coupe to buy, make sure you take a look at the 2012 Audi TT. The only downsides seem to be lack of passenger legroom and not enough power for the needs of some consumers.
