   The Audi TT is a sports car, produced between 1998 and 2006. It was available as a coupe or roadster. This car was replaced with the new TT.

   There are five versions of Audi's 1.8-liter turbocharged engine, offering 150 hp, 180 hp, 225 hp or 240 hp in the new Sport model. All use six-speed manual gearboxes. The 250 hp 3.2 V6 is strong and smooth, and can be mated to Audi's superb semi-auto Direct Shift Gearbox.

   The Audi TT's handling is as sharp as its looks. The ride is firm at low speeds, but the car turns in well and grips superbly. Most coupe versions of the TT have Audi's quattro four-wheel-drive system for surefooted grip in even the worst driving conditions. Sport versions are lightened and lowered for greater performance.

   This car allows you to hear the full voice of the rasping exhaust, and also suffers from some wind noise at speed, despite the slippery shape. However, the engine note will appeal to some, and the wind can easily be drowned out by the excellent stereo.

   The materials used throughout the TT are first rate and assembled with extreme care. A well looked-after car can shrug off high mileage, and the engines and gearboxes have proved sound.

   The TT follows every other Audi in providing high levels of safety kit. As well as four airbags and anti-lock brakes (ABS), you get stability control. The improved locks, with an effective immobilizer.

   Audi's attention to detail is superb, and the immaculately built cabin features some beautiful chrome touches. Controls work efficiently, although some are oddly positioned. In most versions, the driving position is excellent, thanks to full adjustment for the seat and wheel. The racing seats in the Sport model are cramped, however. Rear visibility could be better.

   For two, the TT coupe or roadster makes a decent stab at practicality. There's room for a couple of six-footers, and the boot will swallow their luggage. However, there's not a great deal of space for odds and ends. The tiny rear seats are virtually useless, and in the Sport model and roadsters, non-existent.

   There's generous kit in every model. The good looks are topped off with alloy wheels, while luxuries inside include climate control, remote central locking and leather upholstery. You'll also find electric windows and mirrors, and folding rear seats to extend the boot space. Options include metallic paint, cruise control, satellite-navigation and a six-CD changer.

   There is still a high level of demand on Audi TT and it is reflected in extremely strong value retention.

 

   Advantages: Looks as good as the day it was unveiled. Performance still stacks up. Standard four-wheel drive on most models. Solid build and a high-class cabin lie beneath one of the most attractive cars on the road.

   Disadvantages: Newer rivals are sharper to drive. Forget using rear seats on the coupe for anything other than storage. Rear visibility could be better.

   Verdict: Sleek, distinctive and makes you feel grate.

   Also consider: Mazda RX-8, Nissan 350Z.
