2017 Audi TT Roadster Review


In the past, people have dismissed the TT Roadster as being nothing more than a poseur’s car, but the third-generation model has upped its game. This soft-top version of the TT is more refined, better to drive than ever and packed with far more advanced technology than any of its predecessors.


Body Style: Roadster               Seats: 2                         MRP from £29,840 - £53,550


Did you know? The TT Roadster was scheduled to be the initial 1998 launch model until Audi decided to lead with a hard-top Coupe version

Verdict: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ (7.8/10)

The Roadster may not be the purist’s TT of choice and besides the TTS there may not be the quality of exhaust note to really impress a driver. However, the option to open up all that sky, even while moving around town, is a huge benefit. There is no real-world loss in driver enjoyment versus the Coupe for the vast majority of the time, so the Roadster makes a strong case for itself. As an everyday cruiser to feel good in, the TT Roadster hits the mark.
