The third generation of the Audi TT is receiving a comprehensive update, with a sporty and refined exterior design, higher-powered engines and more equipment.

22 Jul 2018 | International News : Germany

Right on time for the 20th anniversary of the first Audi TT, the brand is especially highlighting the sports car character of the new model. Audi has accordingly refined the design of the new TT, enhanced its performance and extended the range of standard equipment.

Large side air inlets at the front emphasise the sportiness of the Audi TT
More masculine, more progressive and even sportier than before is the exterior design of the new TT. The front features a three-dimensional Singleframe radiator grille. Large side air inlets emphasise width even in the basic version.

At the rear, horizontal lines again underscore the width of the new Audi TT. There is no cap underneath the tank flap with its classic TT design, the driver can insert the petrol pump nozzle directly into the opening. Head lights with LED or Matrix LED technology are optionally available. 

The newly designed, optional S-Line exterior package underscores the sporty character of the Audi TT even more. It includes a full-length front splitter, vertical air inlets, a radiator grille in titanium black and specific side sills with inserts as well as a sporty rear end. Added is a wider diffuser and vertical air inlets below the rear lights with three horizontal fins each.

The new TT leaves the factory on 17-inch wheels. Audi and Audi Sport optionally offer 18, 19 and 20-inch wheels. Three new colours complete the range of paint finishes: Cosmos Blue, Pulse Orange and Turbo Blue.

For the new TT, Audi has a range of petrol engines in various performance levels, paired either with the six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. In both transmission variants, the close-ratio lower gears enable powerful acceleration, while the wide ratio of each transmission's highest gear keeps the engine speed down.

The new Audi TT offers handling that is both dynamic and precise.

In S-Line sport package or Audi magnetic ride, the body is lowered by 10mm. Other chassis highlights include progressive steering, four-link rear suspension and Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC). The wheel selective torque control is activated in fast cornering and improves handling as required by means of precise brake interventions on the unloaded wheels on the inside of a curve.
