What Car? says...

Familiarity is supposed to breed contempt, or at least indifference, but the Audi TT shows things don't have to be that way. In fact, it's getting more appealing with time.

The original TT, from 1998, might have had the looks of a bona fide sports car, but it wasn’t particularly sparkling in the corners.

By contrast, its successor was just as good to drive as it was to gawp at, and this third-generation car moves things on again. Small wonder, then, that the TT easily outsells rivals such as the Ford Mustang and BMW 2 Series.

It’s not just how fast the TT is or how well it handles that makes it such a brilliant coupe, either. Its interior has a high-tech and user-friendly layout, and it’s made from sumptuous materials that wouldn’t look out of place in a luxury car. It’s even relatively practical, with an easy-to-access boot and rear seats that fold flat.

The TT isn't perfect, but when you consider how relatively well priced it is and how well it’ll hold its value, it's actually something of a bargain.

Over the next few pages you can find out everything you need to know before buying an Audi TT, including which engine and trim to choose. And, remember, if you want to buy a TT or any other new car on sale, have a look at our New Car Buying service for some hefty savings.
