For The solid build, neat design (inside and out) and prestige image make the Audi TT Roadster a joy to own, and it won’t break the bank. With sharp handling and plenty of pace, it’s even better to drive.
Against Over-the-shoulder vision is compromised when the roof is up, and the boot is shallow. A Porsche Boxster is more exciting to drive.
What Car? says
The Audi TT Roadster is a proper soft-top sports car that’s fantastic to drive and affordable to own. For the money, it’s untouchable, and that's why it's our Open-Top Car of the Year.

Target Price team says:
The Audi TT has been a huge success for Audi, and it’s not difficult to see why. In either coupe or soft-top Roadster guise, the TT offers an inexpensive and appealing way to get into a premium-badged sports car.
A decent amount of standard kit means there’s no need to spend thousands on the (long) list of optional extras. To keep resale values high, though, it’s worth selecting full leather seats on the cheaper models, and the Comfort Package (rear parking sensors, cruise control, automatic lights and wipers) on all versions. If you want to drive with the hood down outside the summer months, you’ll need to specify the heated seats, too.
There’s also a range of servicing and maintenance, and extended-warranty programmes that could slash your costs.
