Audi has announced updates to its TT range. The front features a three-dimensional single frame radiator grille and large side air inlets emphasize the vehicle’s width dimensions. There is no cap underneath the tank flap; the driver can insert the fuel pump nozzle directly into the opening, thereby showcasing a typical sports car feature. Headlights with LED technology is part of its standard equipment, however Matrix LED technology is optionally available. Dynamic turn signals are also optionally available.
The basic models now feature Audi drive select dynamic handling system, Audi smartphone interface, parking aid plus, power-adjustable front seats and the multifunction steering wheel plus, with which the infotainment and voice control system can be controlled entirely using the steering wheel. Also standard are the illuminated USB ports as well as MMI navigation plus.
Those looking for a sportier car will have to opt for the S line exterior package which offers 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. Additionally available is a wider diffuser and vertical air inlets below the rear lights with three horizontal fins each. Other than the cosmetic treatment, if the customer chooses the S line sport package or Audi magnetic ride, the body is lowered by ten millimetres.
The facelifted TT range includes 19-inch wheels in five different designs. Three new body colours complete the range of paint finishes: cosmos blue, pulse orange and turbo blue (S line models only).
Two petrol engines are on offer. The Audi TT Coupé 45 TFSI S tronic includes 169 kW of power and the Audi TTS Coupé quattro S tronic produces 228 kW of power. The 45 TFSI is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, while the TTS is mated to a six-speed S tronic transmission.
Pricing and sales
The Audi TT Coupé 45 TFSI S tronic is priced at R 670,00 and the Audi TTS Coupé quattro S tronic is priced at R 782,000. Both models come standard with the 5 year / 100 000km Audi Freeway plan and inclusive of all taxes.
The facelifted Audi TT range is currently available for sale at Audi Dealerships around South Africa.
