How it copes with people and clutter

Audi TT coupe front space

If you’re extremely long-legged, you might wish the driver’s seat slid a bit farther back, but most adults will be more than comfortable. The wide cabin also means you feel less claustrophobic and hemmed in than in many sports cars.

The door bins are fairly pokey, but there’s a small cubby in front of the gearlever to keep valuables out of sight, plus a decent-sized glovebox. The single cupholder between the front seats is deep enough to stop a tall cup of coffee falling over when you’re cornering or braking.

Audi TT coupe rear space

The TT’s rear seats are next to useless for carrying people; even children will be cramped, and adults won’t fit without extreme contortion – if at all.

However, the space is useful for bags and coats you can’t be bothered to put in the boot. You can also fit a couple of bags of shopping in the rear footwells if the person sitting directly in front doesn't have his or her seat too far back.

Audi TT coupe seating flexibility

Both front seats are height-adjustable, and the rear seatbacks split 50/50 and lie totally flat when folded down. It’s easy to lower those rear seats when you’re standing by the boot, too; you simply pull a lever on top of the seatback and push the seat forward.

That’s about it for seating flexibility, though; there’s no option of a folding front passenger seat for those occasions when you need to carry extra-long items.

Audi TT coupe boot space

Officially, the Audi TT has a bigger boot than the Ford Fiesta. While the load bay is broad and square, however, it’s also rather shallow – particularly towards the back of the car. So, while the weekly shopping won’t present any problems, carrying taller items is more of a challenge, usually requiring you to fold down the rear seats. Thankfully, doing so leaves no annoying step in the extended boot floor, plus there’s only a small lip to negotiate at the entrance to the boot.

Better yet, the TT’s large hatchback is far more convenient than the saloon-style opening in many rivals and means you can even slot in a bike easily enough – if you remove its front wheel first.
