 Pros The Audi TT roadster's handling goes beyond good and crosses into downright fun. The suspension is a perfect match for a convertible roadster.

 Pros The interior is top-notch quality, though it lacks some of the technological perks in other Audi models.

 Pros The Audi TT roadster's canvas top, though dated, helps to conserve trunk space.

 Pros Great fuel economy.

 Pros Plenty of active safety features, plus an especially strong frame, should make the TT roadster safe, even by convertible standards.

 Pros A variety of optional extras are available to help personalize the TT roadster for each individual buyer.

 Cons The Audi TT roadster has no manual transmission option, which nearly eliminates the point of owning a roadster.

 Cons The canvas top can make it easier for would-be thieves to enter the car, and can show age sooner than a hard-top convertible.

 Cons Considerable turbo lag makes the TT roadster a bit slow off the line. Car and Driver reviews note that, for the price point, this should not be an issue.

 Cons It's cute. The Audi TT lacks the same sexy, aggressive styling that characterizes other models.

 Cons The multimedia interface is complicated and difficult to use.

 Cons The "smart" power steering keeps drivers from feeling to road.

 Cons Reviewers at The Car Connection have complained about rear visibility.

 Cons The TT roadster is small. Foot wells are fairly shallow, limiting passenger room, while the convertible top, while down, reduces trunk space to a comically small amount.
