Currently Audi TT Roadster safety has yet to be tested independently by Euro NCAP – but you can expect this to happen soon. The platform underneath the TT Roadster is shared with the VW golf, SEAT Leon, Skoda Octavia and of course the Audi A3, all of which have received five stars in testing. Expect the Audi TT Roadster to repeat that statistic.

Airbags, for both passenger and driver, take care of occupants should there be an accident, and the passenger airbag can be deactivated – if you need to use a childseat. On top of the Coupe’s safety specification, the TT Roadster gains a pair of rollover bars behind the headrests, ensuring occupants aren’t injured if the vehicle is inverted.

A three stage Electronic Stability Program (ESP) is fitted as standard, allowing drivers to toggle between full assistance, a Sport mode that allows some slip before intervention and a fully off function. Audi Lane assist is fitted as standard to petrol models, though the light and rain sensors for automatically controlling the lights and windscreen wipers only appear on the S Line or TTS models.

The Matrix LED headlights are a near £1,000 option, but they’re worth it, using a series of different LEDs to bend their beams around cars in front, and oncoming, to keep more of the road illuminated around you for longer. With the sat-nav they can even anticipate corners and react before you’ve entered the bend.

You can add plenty more safety kit to your TT Roadster too, if your pockets are deep enough. From Audi Hold Assist to keep the car in position when moving off from a hill, through High Beam Assist to switch between dipped and full beam depending on traffic to Side Assist which warns of vehicles in your blindspot. Cruise Control, and parking sensors (front or rear) disappointingly remain on the options list.

It’s a two-seat sportscar, but actually Audi TT practicality is surprisingly strong. For a start the boot space totals 280 litres, and best of all dropping the top – which folds into a ‘Z’ structure – requires no extra portion of room from the luggage compartment. In contrast many rivals require practicality compromises when taking advantage of the rare sunshine moments, though the BMW 2 Series Convertible benefits from an extra pair of seats and a through-load hatch for longer items.

All that said, while the interior is beautifully constructed, and boasts of the cleanest cabin design seen on a production car, it does lack properly useful oddiment storage. Prime culprits are the door bins, which are incredibly small and especially shallow – it’s easy for some items to simply fall out while driving. The centre console has a cup-holder, and there is a decent-sized cubby with retractable lid in front of the gearlever, plus an average sized glovebox, but that’s really about all that is on offer.

Like the Coupe the TT Roadster’s cabin feels plenty spacious enough, and even with the fabric roof closed it never feels particularly claustrophobic.
