The 2014 Audi TTS has a starting price of $48,700. A convertible version is also available with a starting price of $51,700.
The TTS, the Sport version of the German firm’s pioneering TT, features an aluminum frame supporting a 2.0-liter turbo-charged cast iron/aluminum TFSI engine, producing 265 horsepower and 258 lb/ft of torque.
With all-wheel drive and a seamless six-speed dual clutch transmission, it accelerates from 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds, topping out at 155mph.
In terms of fuel efficiency, you get around 22mpg when driving in the city and and 31mpg when out on the highway (26mpg combined).
The seating areas may be a bit cramped for taller drivers — the front legroom measures 41.1 inches and headroom is 37.7 inches. The rear seating legroom has only 29.2 inches while headroom clears 32.6 inches. But thanks to Audi’s magnetic ride suspension, the ride is extremely smooth.
Overall cargo space in the trunk is 13.1 cubic feet with seats in the upright position and 24.7 cubic feet when they are folded down.
A navigation system installed with current weather conditions is available, as well as a reverse warning censor designed to aid when parking and reversing. Alterable shocks can be set to “sport mode” creating firmer resistance while accelerating. What’s more, it comes with a BOSE sound system as standard with twelve speakers and an iPod connection.
Other features include xenon headlights with LED daylights, front fog lights, quad exhaust, and a modifiable rear spoiler. Basic interior features include leather seats, power-adjustable heated front bucket seats with twelve possible positions, along with a power lumbar function regulating four positions. The seating is arranged 2+2.
Driver and passenger safety airbags including ones on the side and at knee level come as standard. All significant dials, meters, gauges and LED readouts are well placed, and the leather-wrapped steering wheel integrates functions for controlling audio and phone, as well as shift paddles for fast and convenient gear changing.
The 2014 Audi TTS coupe comes with a four-year/50,000 mile warranty and a twelve-month/5,000 mile health inspection.
