Fabric Roof

Audi has always offered a fabric roof on its convertibles, rather than folding metal hardtops, and the TT Roadster is no different – the reason the firm says is to lower the centre of gravity and improve handling. In reality it also means the car can transform from open to closed within ten seconds, at speeds of around 30mph, and uses no extra boot space when retracted.

Three layers of acoustic material mean there’s little penalty in terms of refinement and noise on the move and the new Roadster is up to 6dB quieter than its predecessor.

An open top driving package, which includes head-level seat heating, an electrically operated wind deflector and heated Super Sports Seats ensures you’ll stay warm with the roof lowered, no matter the weather.
