BEST COUPE: Audi TT

Style, performance and affordability. These are the cornerstones of any top-selling coupé, and attributes that the TT has in spades.

Audi’s first-generation model put the firm’s design studio firmly on the map, and the latest version is even more impressive. Evolving the looks of the original, its sleek image and more practical interior have proven to be a big hit – and offer an unrivalled coupé package.

Inside is one of Audi’s finest cabins. While the old flat panel dashboard will be missed by some TT fans, a huge improvement in ergonomic quality and functionality is good news for the stylish two-door.

But the biggest change is out on the road. Last year, we heaped praise on the way the TT drives – and it’s now even better with the launch of the amazing S version. Proving once and for all that the TT is a true rival to the Porsche Boxster, the new flagship model has the performance, handling and fun factor of a truly great sports car.

What’s more, the line-up is available to a wide range of budgets. Basic 2.0-litre models start at £25,210, while a 168bhp 2.0-litre diesel version is also on offer for £26,350. The sporty TTS is priced at £33,390, while those wanting more relaxed performance delivery can opt for the V6 variant, which weighs in at £30,040. Few coupés offer such strength in depth.
