|Say hello to the new TT! Yes, this really is brand new.|
But all very pointless too, really. The TT is a sports car, not a Mercedes S-Class. Worryingly, Audi might have concentrated more on the tech rather than the driving dynamics. But that isn't the only problem.
Good god, have Audi turned into Porsche? To the casual driver, the new TT looks like nothing more than a facelift. And it looks rather conservative too, don't you think? This isn't unusual; all Audi's have been playing it safe design-wise for ages now, and while a generic look may work for the motorway cruiser that is the A6, it really doesn't suit the TT, a car that can crack 0-60 in under five seconds in 'S' trim.
|The previous TTS was a very good car|
Bear with me here. If you really, really want a TT, you can get a car that's maybe three or four years old for much less money. Or to put it another way, for the price of a new 2.0L TDi TT, you can get a used TTS. The last generation TT was hardly known for being unrefined, in fact the TTS was widely regarded as being a very well-mannered car on the road. I'm sure the new TDi will be very well behaved and economical, but if saving fuel is a priority, then you're kind of missing the point of owning a sports car.
|Plunge for an original, get laughed at, but save so much cash|
I'll get this cleared up; the new TT isn't the only car to do this. So many new cars just aren't justifiable enough to be a worthy upgrade. For sure, if it ain't broke don't fix it, but the TT has essentially looked the same for nearly 16 years now. So come on Audi, do not disappoint us with the new R8...
