Audi TT Roadster 3.2 quattro: CNet’s editor’s choice

Audi TT Roadster 3.2 quattro
Here’s a nice review of the Audi TT Roadster 3.2 quattro which scored “Excellent” over at CNet and is therefore their editor’s choice.

Usually, roadsters imply compromise, but the 2008 Audi TT 3.2 Quattro skimps on neither performance nor cabin gadgets. The convertible version of Audi’s unique little coupe gets a remake for 2008, with some minor exterior updates and a full range of interior tech. But along with this incredible performance comes a high price, suggesting the TT is a rich person’s toy.

The new TT roadster deemphasizes the curviness of its predecessor’s body and breaks up the smooth sides with a more distinct beltline. It looks like a slab on wheels, but Audi proves that a slab can be sculpted. The headlights and grille give the front end a distinct face, while the curved trunk lip has a retractable spoiler. The convertible top works effortlessly, lowering and raising at the push of a button, and latching itself down without driver intervention.

Because of the minimal available space in roadsters, we’re not surprised when they don’t offer options such as navigation. However, Audi aims at a luxury buyer, so the options for the TT include a full navigation unit, a premium stereo, and Bluetooth cell phone preparation. Our test car didn’t have navigation, but the stereo’s red LED was larger than any standard radio display we’ve seen.
