Car of the Year Awards 2022: Best coupé for value
A good coupé isn’t just about style. The trick if it’s to be among the class leaders is that it must feel on point whether you’re enjoying a great road or enduring a terrible commute...
Audi TT 40 TFSI Sport Edition
The Audi TT is a big seller for a reason: if you want maximum coupé sportiness for the minimum outlay, it’s simply the best.
The 194bhp petrol engine in the 40 TFSI has plenty of pace to match the low-slung wedge of a body, with an official 0-62mph time of 6.6sec, but won’t cost a fortune to run. The ride is surprisingly comfortable, and with light, accurate steering, the TT beats the Ford Mustang and Mercedes CLA for driver enjoyment.
This is not a coupé that treats back seat passengers to generous head or leg room, but it’s all very pleasant in the front. In our preferred Sport Edition trim, you get leather/Alcantara seats, automatic lights and wipers, cruise control and lots more (although we’d prefer the safety kit to include automatic emergency braking). In this price range, no other car meets the ‘coupé’ brief with such impressive competence and style.
