Product Overview

Audi TT Roadster FV/8S facelift is an affordable subcompact convertible in production from 2018. It is available with a range of inline-4 engines that displaced 2.0 liters.
Compared to the pre-facelift, only cosmetic updates have been introduced. The car remains uninspiring and looks somewhat like a children's toy.
Drivers who appreciate handling should keep in mind that the Audi TT Roadster uses MacPherson front suspension, which doesn't provide the best cornering performance.

Reviewers from autocar have found:
Quattro all-wheel drive and new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. Full-length front splitter and redesigned rear diffuser are now standard on S line models. Audi’s Virtual Cockpit is still the star here, making the cockpit feel that little bit more driver-focused.
  • Powerful turbocharged four-pot
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Lack of rear seats
  • No automatic gearbox

Reviewers from autoexpress have found:
The TT Roadster could well be the pick of Audi's facelifted sports car range. It can't compete with a Porsche 718 Boxster for driving thrills, but as such, makes much more sense as a relaxed roadster. Even though you sacrifice some refinement, it remains a devastating point-to-point weapon – especially in cold, damp and wet weather.
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Impressive infotainment system
  • Not the most dynamic

Reviewers from cnet have found:
The TT is a perfectly nice car to drive, though in base guise it's better suited for lazy, winding roads like California's Pacific Coast Highway. The steering wheel-mounted paddles execute rapid-fire, do-it-yourself gear changes, but the small, plastic flippers are clicky and unsatisfying in their action. The 2019 TT is better to drive than any version that came before, but it isn't a standout in its class.
  • Gorgeous interior
  • Fun to drive
  • Fantastic infotainment system
  • Lack of cabin tech
  • Lackluster on-road manners
