Due to its segment-straddling nature, the Audi TT competes with a range of compact luxury coupes and roadsters as well as true sports cars.
The Mercedes-Benz SLK, for example, is somewhat heavier and more sedate, but offers a folding hardtop, an AMG performance option, and a different sense of style.
The all-new 2013 Porsche Boxster matches the Audi's luxury (or beats it), with even nimbler handling and, except for the TT RS, more power, though it's far more expensive.
Nissan's 370Z is much more affordable, on the other hand, with plenty of power, handling, and style, but at the cost of interior quality, noise, and refinement.
The BMW Z4 spans a similar range to the Audi TT, with a new 2.0-liter turbo engine and a potent 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder both available, but the Z4's overall feel is more grand tourer than nimble sports car.
