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 TT Roadster has an electric cloth roof, whereas the rival Mercedes SLK and BMW Z4 convertibles both use folding metal tops. The advantages are that the cloth folds into a smaller area, so boot space isn’t as compromised, and it's lighter, which benefits fuel economy. The Roadster loses the rear seats of the TT coupe, but retains its wide range of efficient and powerful engines, making it fun to drive and relatively cheap to run.
