Which used Audi TT coupe should I buy?
Don't be put off by the 2.0-litre 197bhp TFSI version. It feels more alert than the heavier V6, and sounds great under hard acceleration. The 3.2-litre 247bhp V6 is faster, and comes with four-wheel drive as standard to make the most of the extra grunt.
There's also a 2.0-litre 168bhp TDI diesel TT, which was introduced in 2008. The smooth engine has plenty of pull, so you can afford to be lazy with the gearchanges. It comes with quattro four-wheel drive as standard, but the best feature is the low 138g/km CO2 emissions.
The standard six-speed manual gearbox is slick and well matched to the engines, but the optional S-tronic semi-auto is slightly more fuel efficient and will change gear faster than you can. Some TTs also have the Magnetic Ride suspension system fitted, which can be used in Comfort or Sport settings, although the standard suspension is brilliant anyway.
All models are well equipped, with climate control, alloys, electronic stability control, curtain airbags and half-leather sports seats as standard. Metallic paint is essential for good residual values.
