What's the used Audi TT coupe like?

Stunning is the only word to describe the looks of the Audi TT. Even though it's been on sale since 1999, there's still nothing else that looks quite like it. Best of all, the interior is as stylish as the exterior, with all sorts of beautiful design touches.

It's comfortable, too, for a coupe, with plenty of room in the front for all but the tallest. Unlike the TT roadster, the coupe does have seats in the back, but they're extremely cramped, and best used as extra stowage to add to the decent boot space.

Best of all, the TT drive almost well as it looks, with good performance from even the least powerful versions. Most have four-wheel drive – and excellent traction as a result - while the firm suspension gives sharp handling, although the low-speed ride is rather firm.

That said, the TT's not quite as exciting as a Porsche Boxster to drive, and you're better off thinking of it as a high-speed tourer rather than an outright sports car.
