What's the used Audi TT like?
Although it’s not always true that things improve with age, the Audi TT seems to prove that some things actually do. It’s been consistently ahead of its rivals for many years now and has been phenomenally successful in all three of its generations. It’s been a huge success in our annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards for new cars, too, regularly picking up the Best Coupé gong without even pausing for breath.
This third-gen car merely builds on the sound foundations established by the first two: it’s amazingly agile, with some strong engine options, and is fast in a straight line and quick in corners. It’s easy to drive, too, and refined at low speeds, and the whole car feels solid and durable; indeed, it’s the classy feel of the TT that really separates it from its nearest rivals. Its interior has a high-tech and user-friendly layout, even if it doesn’t seem quite as ground-breaking now as the original TT’s did back in 1999, and it’s made from sumptuous materials that wouldn’t look out of place in a luxury car. It’s even pretty practical, with an easy-to-access boot and rear seats that fold flat.
It won’t cost a fortune to buy or run, either. Prices for the TT have always been strong, thanks to its good residual values, but its relatively modest new price means that used examples now look especially attractive.
