What's the used Audi TT sports like?

Although it's not as visually arresting as the original Audi TT Roadster, the newer model is a better car.

Usually, losing the roof effects the stiffness of a car's chassis, so the ride and handling suffers, or adds extra weight, but not so with the TT. Most of the bodywork is made from aluminium, making it light yet strong. This low weight gives the TT amazing agility and, combined with the peppy engine options, it's very fast in a straight line and grippy through the bends.

The ride is firm, but not excessively so. Despite the performance, the TT is easy to drive and refined at low speeds. Wind buffeting isn't really a problem with the roof down.

The interior feels solid and durable, and quality materials are used throughout. Unlike the Coupe version, there are no rear seats, as the electric hood takes up the space. Rear visibility is restricted with the roof up and the boot is a bit small, too.
