Red & Black 2008 Audi TT Coupe

There are many Audis you can find for under $20,000, and if you’re lucky you can find a classic/iconic Audi that’s around that price.

Audi has created some unique and unforgettable cars on the planet. The company has a colorful history from its origins in Germany, where car production began on a small scale.

Audi has since created cars that have captured people’s attention, including models like the Audi R8 that came out of nowhere to impress supercar fans everywhere. Some of these legendary vehicles have become collector’s items, meaning they are very expensive.

But all hope is not lost as some vehicles have become affordable. After all, their market value has decreased over the years. One can find some of the most remarkable cars in the Audi range for under $20,000.

Let’s take a look at the best Audis that are under $20k.

2008 Audi TT

The 2008 Audi TT has a different appearance than its previous models. It has a brighter styled sheet metal for a more masculine look, an updated interior and performance to match its fashion statement.

The TT is available as a coupé or as a roadster. It is available in two different models: a turbocharged four-cylinder model with front-wheel drive and a V-6 model with Quattro four-wheel drive.

The 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the 2.0T front-wheel drive model produces 200 horsepower and 207 pound-feet of torque. The four-wheel drive V-6 model produces 250 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. An automated paddle shift manual transmission is standard on the 2.0T. The 3.2 Quattro is available with a six-speed manual or a six-speed S-Tronic transmission.

The 2008 Audi TT drives significantly better and is much more responsive than the previous generation. Ride quality is also improved, thanks to the new magnetic ride dampers. The new wheelhouse may have no feel to some drivers, but its sharpness is beyond question. It is a fast car that can handle wet weather well.

Audi sold 4,486 units of the TT in 2008; this was a good year for the TT as no other year sold this number of units. As you can see this was one of the best cars made in 2008 and the car is really reliable. In addition, there were not many complaints about the vehicle. The price of the TT is around $8,554 to $11,604.

2002 to 2004 Audi RS6

The RS6 is an underrated super sedan; the 4.2-litre twin-turbocharged V8 under the hood produces more horsepower than the M5, and the RS6 has Audi’s Quattro all-wheel drive.

The 4.2-liter twin-turbocharged V8 produces 444 horsepower and 428 pound-feet of torque. The RS6 can go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 255 mph, although some owners say the top speed is around 267 mph.

Audi’s Quattro AWD System, with an active center differential, is standard on every C5 RS6. It comes with a five-speed automatic transmission. The RS6 is safe and fun to drive, but you can also have fun with it, especially if you turn off the stability control.

The C5 is fully equipped with a navigation system, two-zone climate control, heated seats, cruise control, HID headlights, front and rear parking sensors and other features.

The market for the C5 RS6 has been relatively stable over the years, with Audi selling 1200 units of the C5. The C5 RS6 has a market value of approximately $18,000, with a lowest price of $7,000.

The C5 RS6 is a great old-school performance sedan that will turn heads while still offering an outstanding driving experience and affordable luxury.

2007 Audi RS4 Quattro Sedan

A 4.2 liter V8 engine powers the Audi RS 4. This monster produces 420 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque thanks to direct fuel injection and a 12.5:1 compression ratio. Audi’s Quattro four-wheel drive technology delivers power to all four wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. The RS accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds.

Thanks to the 400 horsepower and four-wheel drive grip, the RS 4 has no problem catapulting itself off the line or out of a corner. Apart from its remarkable acceleration, the RS 4 also excels in braking and handling.

Despite the high curb weight, the RS 4 remains controlled in the bends. The front tires provide excellent confidence and grip, the balance is strong and the steering feel at speed is superior to most cars.


The safety features aren’t bad; it has stability control, anti-lock brakes with brake assist, front-seat-mounted side airbags and full-length head curtain airbags. The 2007 RS 4 is part of the second generation Audi RS 4, and during this generation Audi has sold a total of 10,000 units. The price is about $9,891 to $14,442.
