The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.0
7.8

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2013 Audi TT RS is the star on track, but all TT models offer fun and efficiency, plus a welcome dash of style. The 2013 BMW Z4 is spirited and purposeful, and balances fun and comfort quite well, but it's pricier than other roadsters.
