Iconic styling, sophisticated interior, great 1.8T engine
Not quite as good to drive as some rivals
Audi's first sportscar since the legendary Quattro, the all-wheel-drive TT is a stylish alternative to the Porsche Boxster and Mercedes SLK. It's been around for quite a while making it easy to forget how beautiful it is both inside and out. It really is exceptional. It is also well engineered and although based on Mk IV Golf underpinnings, it serves up considerable performance with everyday, all weather usability.
Serious drivers may mourn the lack of ultimate involvement but the rest of us will enjoy looking good and going quickly.
