Our verdict

Unless you really need the rear seats and extra equipment in the VW Scirocco, the Audi TT makes much the better choice. It’s more rewarding to drive, classier inside and offers superior economy and emissions – and it has the benefit of four-wheel drive. While private buyers might find a saving by opting for the Scirocco, the TT is well worth the premium.
