Styling, handling, brand heritage
Dated interior, patchy build quality, poor reliability
These funsters are fitted with free-revving engines located behind the rear seats to give balanced handling and confident roadholding. The F had a hydra-gas suspension set up that has been replaced with more conventional springs and dampers on the TF. This allows a more sporting feel, but at the expense of ride quality which is better on the older car.
The VVC engine is the pick of the range - adding spice to this already convincing package.
