The Audi TT Tiptronic

By Jepan Mihai

The German maker has taken a less-is-more approach to the mid-life makeover of its striking sports coupe and convertibleThe Audi TT features front grille changes, exterior colours and interior trim, and 16in wheels Audi has added a Tiptronic automatic transmission to go with the five-speed manual.

. For relaxed commuting or lazy highway stints, simply slot the gearshift into ‘D’. An adaptive driving program, called DSP, analyses driving style and continuously adjusts the gear change timing to suit.

For a sportier response, slot into ‘S’ and it holds onto gears for higher revs and faster as well as super-smooth gear changes. To change gears yourself, there’s a ‘clutchless’ manual mode..According to Audi, the tiptronic TT is more economical than the manual, using 8.5lt/100km on a combined city/highway cycle.

In coupe or roadster form, the auto TT is a joy to punt hard on a windy stretch. It corners flat and predictably, with grip and safety levels enhanced by 205/55 16in rubber and various electronic aids. Surprisingly for such a taut and responsive chassis, road bumps are soaked up with little fuss.

In-cabin styling matches the exterior for pizazz, with aluminium accents and other sharp design elements highlighting the well-built well-appointed interior. The driver sits down low in finely crafted leather seats, while the top-notch Bose stereo should satisfy the most discerning car audiophile.

The old criticism of limited rear vision in the coupe remains, but if that’s a problem, choose the roadster – the top folds in seconds for unrestricted open-air motoring. The roadster is strictly a two seater; the coupe’s token rear seats providing enough space for some extra luggage, or a baby seat.

The tiptronic auto may not be the purist’s choice, but it’s the logical solution for the majority of drivers. Without overly detracting from the TT’s sporting edge, it better caters to the overwhelming majority who spend most of their driving time in city traffic.
