Audi TT

Not only is the Audi TT a beautiful piece of design, but it drives very well, too. Available as a coupe or a convertible, The Audi TT is not the most practical around, but few machines match its blend of prestige, quality and comfort. Equipped with Audi's 2.0 TDI diesel engine, or a 1.8 and 2.0-litre petrol engine, it's relatively cheap to run. At the other end of the scale, the range-topping Audi TT RS offers supercar-matching performance.

The latest Audi TT is a stylish, well built and cheap-to-run coupe with four seats and a reasonably sized boot. It's more expensive to buy than before, but the engines are more powerful, there's more standard equipment and the interior is more upmarket, too.

You get a choice of 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines, with our highlight being the brilliant TDI Ultra, which mixes good real-world performance with rock-bottom running costs. Providing you avoid the S line suspension, the TT feels just as comfortable around town as it does on long motorway runs.

Few rivals can match this car's breadth of talents, but models like the Peugeot RCZ, Volkswagen Scirocco and BMW 4 Series come close. But if you're looking at a more expensive high-spec TT, then the Porsche Cayman outclasses it for driving fun.

The Audi TT Roadster is Audi's answer to cars like the BMW Z4 Roadster, Mercedes SLK Cabriolet and the Porsche Boxster roadster. The original Audi TT Roadster had one of the most iconic body shapes of recent times, and the new version has many of the same styling cues. The current Audi TT Roadster is much more fun to drive than the car it replaced and it boasts decent grip for fast cornering. The Audi also offers a good range of engines, which cover everything from economical diesels to fast petrols. The Roadster scores highly for interior quality, with an extremely well built dashboard and controls that manage to be both logical to use and stylish. The Roadster's party trick, though, is its electrically folding fabric roof.
