The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.0
8.4

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 Mercedes-Benz SLK is the least polarizing of the roadsters, but there's enough urgency to go with its elegant, mini-SL charm.
