The Audi TT/S Roadster, a soft-top convertible that comes as either a manual or an automatic top that opens and closes in a lightning-quick 12 seconds, boasts a lot of big changes for 2010. One of the biggest changes for the U.S. model is that both versions of the two-seater are now only available with Audi’s 6-speed dual clutch transmission paired with the manufacturer’s legendary quattro all-wheel drive system. Another big change is that the roadsters are now only available with Audi’s turbocharged 2.0-liter TFSI engine which delivers 211 horsepower in the TT Roadster and 265 horsepower in the TTS, yielding estimated 0-60 times of 6.2 and 5.1 seconds respectively. Of even more significance is the fact that torque has been increased significantly over the outgoing models and that peak power is available at lower rpm, thereby addressing previous complaints of turbo-lag.

Despite being a fairly heavy car, which is usually a recipe for disaster when it comes to navigating curves, the two-seater does not disappoint in the handling department, as its optional magnetic shocks do a great job of providing a supple yet responsive ride. Add Audi’s comfortable seats and upscale interior to the mix, and this convertible becomes an attractive option starting at a relatively inexpensive $40,800 and going up to approximately $55,720.

  1. The new Audi TTS Roadster comes with rather disappointing 0-60 mph sprint time of 5.3 seconds; so much so that it is almost worst in class. This was not the case with older editions of the vehicle. Older models came with a sprint time of 4.9 seconds.
