The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Audi TT isn't a pure driver's car, but all-wheel drive, fun-to-drive dynamics, and decent fuel economy make it a practical choice for sporty fun. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class dukes it out on comfort with more sporting rivals.
