TCC’s Bottom Line
With its uprated edition and more muscular styling, the 2010 Audi TT edges closer to the border between sporty cars and true sports cars. The 2010 BMW Z4 has evolved into an exhilarating sports car with a marvelous folding top, but interior space is tight and the price is dear. The 2010 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class has the poise and performance of a sports car and the soul of a sunny roadster.
