Audi TT RS Summary
The Audi TT RS is the top-tier trim of the Audi TT first produced in 2012 and 2013 and later again in 2018. Early models were offered in a sports coupe and convertible, while the coupe is the only option in recent models. Impeccably designed and equipped with a powerful twin-turbo 5 L engine, this high-performance vehicle is one thrilling ride. The list of standard features is impressive, while the interior strikes a balance between luxury and practicality. While its price tag is substantial, it's well worth a test drive for those who crave the thrill of the ride.
Audi TT RS Safety
The first generation of Audi TT RS models are limited in terms of available safety features by today's standards, but it still provides airbags on all sides and high-pressure washers for the headlights. Drivers who are searching for a car with more driving aids should look at newer models, which include:
- Integrated turn-signal mirrors
- Optional blind-spot monitoring – to warn drivers when cars are approaching the adjacent lane
- Front and rear parking sensors
Audi TT RS Interior
The interior of the Audi TT RS is sleek and made with high-end materials. The dashboard, doors and seats are dressed in black with brushed aluminum trim, and leather is the standard seat upholstery. The 2013 Audi TT RS convertible replaces back-row seats for storing the drop-down roof. Seats in the Audi TT RS 2019–20 feature unique honeycomb-quilted Nappa leather. The multifunctional centre console is designed to make the front row look like a cockpit.
Audi TT RS Technology
The first Audi TT RS released in 2012 was equipped with a number of standard gadgets, such as satellite radio and auxiliary audio input to hook up your music to the car's sound system. When the model returned in 2018, plenty more technical features were added, such as:
- Infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
- Rearview camera
- USB ports
All in-car entertainment features are highly intuitive. Drivers can upgrade their sound system with Bang and Olufsen speakers.
Audi TT RS Space
The front row of the Audi TT RS is a little tight but is still adequate for taller commuters. Like most coupes, the back row of seats have limited head and legroom, so leggier passengers may find it less comfortable. Getting in and out of the car may also require a little more bending than in other vehicles. The trunk is a bit shallow, but it's easy to load and unload your items. There are also a few small storage areas within the cabin for extra convenience.
Audi TT RS Comfort
Sports car enthusiasts typically love the roar of the engine, but with limited soundproofing in the Audi TT RS, you can expect to hear more noises than usual. The ride might seem a bit stiff and may jostle passengers, but drivers can select different driving modes to increase passenger comfort. Racing around corners is a breeze, and its powerful twin-turbo engine has thrilling acceleration, going from 0-60 in just 3.7 seconds. Steering is easy and makes drivers feel in control.
