Audi TT Used Car Buyer’s Guide: 2008 – 2012 (current model)
Longer, wider and taller than the original iteration of the car, the second generation TT looked sleeker and more firmly planted to the ground. The suspension system was completely redesigned, and the model gained electric power steering.
It also became more luxurious, with a broader raft of standard equipment. However, even with the added gear, the TT lost weight because the 2nd generation model made extensive use of aluminum in its construction. This simultaneously made the car lighter and more rigid, which equated to better handling, as well as better fuel economy.
While the original TT was a revolutionary design, the revised model was more of an evolution of the original. Still immediately recognizable as a TT, the 2nd generation model was considerably more masculine in appearance.
