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 second version of the Audi TT sticks to the blueprint set by the 1999 original, by combining style, quality and prestige. It's good fun to drive, too, with a low seating position and a range of powerful engines. It's technically a four-seat car, but head and legroom are tight in the back. The Peugeot RCZ and VW Scirocco are cheaper, and very good alternatives, but don’t have the TT's prestige.

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.
