Audi TT Roadster Owner’s Guide

Experience the freedom of the open road like never before in the Audi TT Roadster. Even though you can drop the top, the TT Roadster feels just as secure and stable as the TT Coupe. That’s largely because of all the automation and driver customization, which makes this convertible intuitive to drive.

Below we provide more details on what it’s like to own and drive an Audi TT Roadster in Austin.

The Audi TT Roadster Model Essentials

The Audi TT Roadster model is very reminiscent of the TT Coupe with one key difference – you can retract the roof. The newest generation is lighter and more powerful than before, which is impressive given that it has a competitive price for its class.


It may not have as much horsepower as the TT RS, but the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the lightweight Audi TT Roadster provides noticeable power. It’s also a vehicle that can handle all sorts of driving conditions thanks to the variable torque delivery and custom drive modes. Sure, you’ll want to take it for a spin on sunny days, but even when the weather isn’t perfect there’s no reason to keep the TT Roadster in the garage.

Some of the new Audi TT Roadster performance specs include:

  • Up to 220 horsepower
  • 0-to-60 in 5.6 seconds
