   The Audi TT is produced since 2006. It is available as a coupe, but the convertible version is expected in 2007. Despite retaining similar appearance to the old model, the new Audi TT is a completely re-engineered sports car.

   At the moment there are only two engines for the new TT. It is a 2.0-liter TFSI turbocharged unit, and a 3.2-liter V6. The last mentioned is very strong and smooth, but the 2.0-liter is a star buy. The TFSI delivers brisk performance, but it is still very flexible in town. It comes with a front wheel drive, while the V6 unit has an all wheel drive as standard. A 6-speed manual transmission is fitted as standard, while the direct shift gearbox is available as an option.

    A new dynamic suspension was developed specially for the TT, but the ride is firm at low speeds. The car has an excellent body control, due to a better distributed weight between the axles. One more feature is a self-steering system, that ranges from the neutral to the light understeer. A rear spoiler is automatically extended at the speed of 120 km/h (75 mph). It is worth mentioning that the front wheel drive 2.0-liter model feels more fun to drive, than the V6.

   Engines of the new TT are inaudible and well refined, it the car is driven gently, but they unleash the rasping notes as the revs climb. There is some wind noise at high speeds, but it really do not makes you feel uncomfortable. Unfortunately there is some road noise, especially on the V6 model.

   There is a high demand on the new Audi TT, and it is likely that you will have to wait for it. On the other hand it will keep it's value very well, as kept it's predecessor. Running costs of the new TT are reasonable. The 2.0-liter car consumes on average only 7.7 liters on the combined cycle. However if you will use all it's power, you will get hefty bills. It should be a reliable car, however the old TT performed at this point no better than average.

   Inside the car all controls are strictly oriented to the driver, and the dash design is very ergonomic. Interior is made from the top quality materials and everything has a built-to-last feel. Drivers position is excellent and features both way steering wheel and seat adjustments. Unfortunately the rear visibility could be better.

   There is enough space for two inside, but the tiny rear seats are useless for adults, because of the not sufficient leg- or headroom. The boot isn't great, but the flat folding rear seats make it more versatile.

   The new Audi TT comes with a decent level of safety equipment. Front and side airbags are standard, as well as an electronic stability control. The old TT was a hard nut for the thieves, so the new one should be just as secure.

   It comes with a number of standard goodies such as alloy wheels, climate control, leather upholstery, electric windows and mirrors. Satellite navigation, parking sensors and swiveling round the corners headlights are offered as an option.

   Production of the Audi TT still continues.

 

   Advantages: Strong engines offer a sensational drive. Solid build, quality materials and strong resale value make it a good choice to buy and own.

   Disadvantages: The rear seats are suitable for children only. The cabin lost some of the intricate detailing of the previous car.

   Verdict: Even better than the old car.

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