The 2011 Audi TTS does not have enough ratings to earn a valid Total Car Score.
Serving as the uber-sport version of Audi’s stylish TT coupe and roadster, the Audi TTS has been infused with greater power and performance to gain more of a track star status. Reviewers were impressed with the TTS’ cornering prowess, smooth-shifting S tronic gearbox and its very capable quattro all-wheel drive system. Fuel economy was also noted as being very good for this level of performance. The TTS’ attractive, high-quality interior garnered praise as well.
However, a notable downside to the TTS is a steering system that’s not as precise and dialed-in as similarly-sized high-performance rivals. The stylish Audi also suffers from an overall shortage of legroom. For the driver, this could impede proper pedal operation, especially during high-speed maneuvers.
Changes for 2011 are relatively minor. The front fascia has been modified with a new grille. Now standard is an auto-dimming rearview mirror, 10-way power front seats and a sport button to recalibrate steering and suspension settings. A special Silk Nappa leather package also joins the roster of standard features. And the Premium Trim has been replaced by the Premium Plus trim.
The Audi TTS launched three years ago and piggy-backed the design cycle of the parent-model TT. An all-new model is expected to be two to three years away.
The 2011 Audi TTS is sold as a high-performance luxury 2+2 coupe or two-seat roadster.
Both bodystyles are available in two trim levels: Premium Plus and Prestige. Premium Plus offers adjustable drive settings for suspension and steering, xenon headlamps, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, 19-inch wheels and a nine-speaker audio system with auxiliary input.
Standard equipment for the Prestige trim includes a navigation system, LED interior lighting an upgraded audio system and heated seats. Optional leather trim is available with a baseball mit look-and-feel.
The TTS Roadster employs a fully automatic convertible soft top and a power-retractable rear wind deflector, plus a pass-through to the cargo area for carrying longer items.
The 2011 Audi TTS is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 265 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Energy is managed by a six-speed dual-clutch automated manual transmission (S tronic) and is channeled to all four wheels via Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system.
EPA fuel economy for the 2011 Audi TTS is 21 mpg city/29 mpg highway/24 mpg combined.
