Comments from International Motoring Websites:
- “The Audi TT doesn’t have the sharp driving feel of the Porsche Boxster/Cayman twins, and the BMW Z4 and Mercedes-Benz SLK offer a more refined experience thanks to the added quiet of their hard-top convertible designs.” — Kelley Blue Book
- “The 2015 Audi TT is still a fine choice in the personal, sporty car realm thanks to its peppy personality, premium feel and avant-garde styling.” — Edmunds
- “Fans will point to the TT’s energetic turbocharged engine, standard all-wheel drive and nimble handling. Foes will retort that the TT’s platform is closely related to that of the Volkswagen Golf, so it’s not a real sports car (whatever that means). We can see both sides, but there’s no doubt that the 2015 Audi TT looks good enough to clinch a sale on appearance alone. Add some solid fun-to-drive points to that equation, and we’d say that the 2015 TT is sitting pretty despite its advancing age.” — AutoTrader
