Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Costs, insurance groups, MPG and CO2

The Audi TT Roadster slightly undercuts the Z4, but the TTS Roadster is slightly pricier than its 718 Boxster equivalent. The TT Roadster is predicted to hold on to its value better than its key rivals, though.

The entry-level engine represents great value considering the performance it offers. It also makes a tempting company car proposition, thanks to offering fairly low CO2 emissions as far as sports cars go.

Unless you choose the Vorsprung, TTS or TT RS, you’ll have to pay extra for climate control and cruise control. Sat-nav is also an expensive optional extra, coming only as part of the Technology Pack.

Reliability

Audi as a brand finished close to the middle of the field in the 2021 What Car? Reliability Survey, claiming 18th place out of the 30 manufacturers included. That puts it above Ford and Porsche in the standings, but below BMW.

The TT as a model found much more success in the Coupés, Convertibles and Sports Cars section of our survey, sharing top spot out of eight models with the Mini Convertible

Audi’s standard three-year warranty is valid for unlimited mileage in the first two years (a 60,000 mile limit applies in the third), and includes three years of UK roadside assistance and recovery. A four or five-year warranty can also be added from the extensive options list for extra peace of mind.

Overview

The Audi TT Roadster impresses with just how multi-talented it is. It beats the BMW Z4 for having fun through corners and its interior is more than a match for that of the Porsche 718 Boxster. Perhaps the best news, though, is that we reckon the cheapest version is the best.
