Audi is sending the TTS (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 7.3 – 7.1* (32.2 – 33.1 US mpg)*; combined CO2emission 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
Sporty 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.
