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 2009 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class combines the romance of a small roadster with grand-touring comfort, as well as the poise and performance of a larger sportscar. The Nissan Z has never occupied the top spot in the performance world—and it doesn't now—but it's still a great performance car that starts just under $30,000.
