The Top Gear car review:Audi TT Roadster

Overall verdict
The clever and talented TT Roadster now drives almost as good as it looks.


Brilliant interior, seriously good looks, drive is finally up to scratch too


Two seats only, you know everyone will have one soon enough...


What is it?

A drop-top icon, and apparently how the TT was originally conceived. The coupe’s fastback lines might be the ones we all think of when you say Audi TT, but it was always meant to be a roadster. There’s a fabric roof that folds at the touch of a button, while a pop-up wind deflector keeps the cabin draught free. Audi even offers neck-warming seats if you’re a winter-sun enthusiast. 

As with its two predecessors this third-generation TT Roadster looks sensational roof up or down, and, sensible head on for a moment, it doesn’t lose boot space whether you’re open to the elements or snug inside under that beautifully finished multi-layer roof.
