Compact Premium Sports Car in Top Form: New Audi TTS Available for Order

  • Sharp­er exte­ri­or design under­scores dynam­ic appear­ance
  • New sev­en-speed S tron­ic is both effi­cient and dynam­ic
  • TTS com­pe­ti­tion spe­cial mod­el adds sporty touch

Audi is send­ing the TTS (com­bined fuel con­sump­tion in l/100 km: 7.3 – 7.1* (32.2 – 33.1 US mpg); com­bined CO2 emis­sion in g/km: 166 – 161 (267.2 – 259.1 g/mi)) into the new mod­el year—the com­pact pre­mi­um sports car is now avail­able for order. The new sev­en-speed S tron­ic, a stan­dard fea­ture, fur­ther improves the accel­er­a­tion val­ues of the Coupé and Road­ster. The TTS com­pe­ti­tion spe­cial mod­el presents an espe­cial­ly refined exte­ri­or and an exclu­sive inte­ri­or.

The new TTS uses sporty design details to high­light its sta­tus as the top mod­el of the TT fam­i­ly from Audi. Ele­ments in a matt alu­minum sil­ver look shine in the Sin­gle­frame grille with a TTS badge and the matt tita­ni­um black insert. The new hor­i­zon­tal blade in the bumper is also strik­ing. It turns up at the ends, form­ing nar­row, upright fun­nels at the same height as the side air inlets. The full-length front split­ter, the ver­ti­cal air inlets and the trim strips also fea­ture an alu­minum look. Pow­er­ful­ly con­toured sills also under­score the sporty char­ac­ter viewed from the sides. The hint­ed ver­ti­cal air out­lets below the rear lights and the broad­ened dif­fuser with the four tailpipes of the exhaust sys­tem are par­tic­u­lar high­lights at the rear.

Pow­er­ful com­bi­na­tion: Sev­en-speed S tron­ic, 2.0 TFSI and quat­tro dri­ve
accel­er­a­tion val­ues are pos­si­ble with the sev­en-speed dual-clutch trans­mis­sion thanks to the close ratios of the low­er gears. The wide ratio of the high­est gear reduces engine speed and with it fuel con­sump­tion.

The 2.0 TFSI out­puts 225 kW (306 met­ric horse­pow­er) and has a max­i­mum torque of 400 Nm (295.0 lb-ft) in the speed range between 2,000 and 5,300 rpm. That is 20 Nm (14.8 lb-ft) more than with the pre­de­ces­sor engine. The TTS Coupé accel­er­ates to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.5 sec­onds (Road­ster: 4.8 seconds)—a tenth faster than pre­vi­ous­ly. The top speed is restrict­ed elec­tron­i­cal­ly to 250 km/h (155.3 mph). A gaso­line par­tic­u­late fil­ter is stan­dard.
