Walter da-Silva, chief designer of Audi expressed that you should change an icon like the Audi TT only very carefully. It is up to you to decide whether he succeeded or has, indeed, altered the character of the car? In any case, just the silhouette in side view is left of the old form and also the counter swing towards the rear is gone. The high side line below the windows is less striking from the outside now. The design is more elegant, but also less outspoken. The front is clearly adapted to fit the remaining Audi models. The volume especially of the boot has increased. Of course the space on the rear jump seats is limited as the car measures only 4.2 meter. The quality is superb in comparison to its competitors, indeed; the reminiscences of the shape of the filler cap once of aluminum in the interior are almost completely gone.
The decent sound of the petrol direct fuel injection engine fits well to the slight obtrusiveness of this sports car. The engine features a turbocharger which already pressurizes the TFSI engine at low revs. Certainly you may come a long way of fulfilling old dreams with the combination of shape and powerful engine. However, this is even truer for the chassis, obviously pleasure without remorse. It has exactly the right tuning between agile and staying in complete control. If you have decided against a surcharge to have the Magnetic Ride system installed as extra equipment, the control device will decide in milliseconds for you whether it should be a little more comfortably or a bit more sportily.
There are reasons for the agility which can be traced back to the car body construction. Audi has clearly extended its competence in mixing aluminum and steel. Practically everything is possible, as long as you prevent the direct contact of both metals if exposed to water or air humidity. Besides the pure aluminum construction and the solution, e.g., of an aluminum front part and good isolation to the rest of the car body, it is nowadays possible to insert aluminum in steel based vehicles or reverse. Conditionally, the glue must prevent hundred percent contact of the two and isolate outwardly, in addition. The Audi TT has a higher percentage of aluminum in front. This creates in turn favorable conditions for a good weight distribution and therefore a good chassis.
