Why Is No One Buying The 2020 Audi TT?

Looking at sports cars of the year, the 2020 Audi TT seems to take a back seat to just about every other new sports car. It never seems to be the topic of conversation, and it’s almost like we never see them out on the road. With its aggressive styling, sporty handling, and luxurious interior, it is pretty surprising that the new Audi TT isn’t more popular.

When it comes to buying a sports car you usually expect to have to make sacrifices. If there is one thing Audi has done right, it’s combing all of the luxury and comfort of their sedans and SUVs with all of the performance of their racing heritage. In fact, the TT wouldn’t be the first time that Audi has created a car that’s tricked us into thinking sports cars and supercars can be comfortable daily drivers, as we’ve seen plenty of R8s on the road over the past few years.

The newest generation of the Audi TT is the most aggressively styled yet, taking cues from the manufacturer’s supercar, the Audi R8. It doesn’t have nearly as big of a price tag to bite off, with a starting price of around $45,000 or upwards of $67,600. That might seem like a high monthly payment waiting to happen, but that isn’t completely out of the ballpark of Audi’s more popular sedans and SUVs.

Combined with luxury

The Audi TT doesn’t sacrifice luxury and comfort for the sake of a sporty drive. The interior of the TT is lined with high-quality materials and fine detailing.

As you’d expect from any Audi vehicle, the steering is responsive and enjoyable, the ability to switch between comfort, custom, and sport modes adjusting the steering to your personal preference. The suspension is stiff yet comfortable, giving it enough rigidity to handle tight turns and corners but enough softness so that you don’t feel like every pothole is a canyon.

The seats are plush and comfortable, with a beautiful diamond stitching that makes the interior look as high-quality as it feels. You’ll feel comfortable and enjoy the peace and quiet from road noise provided by the well-insulated body.

The TT is intensively driver-focused, which isn’t uncommon in sports cars as we see that now with the BMW I8 and the mid-engine C8 Corvette. This is just one thing that makes the car feel even sportier.

Audi TTs don’t have a great history of holding their value, which is good for prospective owners as they begin to hit the used-car market with the introduction of the new 2021 model years. The Audi TT is more affordable than some other sports cars of the same caliber, with a lot more to offer, and the best part is that they are uncommon enough that you will feel a little extra special for owning one.
