TCC’s Bottom Line
With a driver-centric interior design and a lighter, quicker driving character, the 2016 Audi TT now offers more of the driving experience that its exterior teases. While it isn't as agile as the Porsche Boxster it is priced against, the 2016 BMW Z4 balances sportiness with comfort and a comfortable cabin. The 2016 Porsche Boxster is a thrill to drive; but beyond that it's a great car in nearly every way, and one of the best-value sports cars you can get.
