Our TT had a 3.2-liter six cylinder engine, with 250 horsepower. It doesn't sound like a lot, but the car is fast. The TT can also be had with a turbocharged 2-liter four cylinder. The 3.2-liter version also comes with Quattro all-wheel-drive standard.

The DSG, double-clutch transmission on our test car made driving and performance substantially better than it would have been with the six speed manual. The DSG makes lightning fast shifts through its six gears.
