Audi TT and Audi TTS celebrate premiere at Geneva Motor

Compact sports car impresses its design and driving dynamics

of the Board of Management for Technical Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg: drivers a technology experience is even more compelling”

A revised edition of a modern is ready to take center The Audi TT and Audi TTS will their world premieres at the Motor Show (these are currently not available for sale. do not yet have a general type and are therefore not covered by Directive

The third generation of the compact car is again captivating, with its design and dynamic qualities. The new is characterized by the use of innovative technologies in its and in its control and display concept, the Audi virtual cockpit.

Audi TT is the epitome of an authentic icon and a top-performance driving explains Prof. Dr. Ulrich Member of the Board of Management of AG for Technical Development. “With the new we are making this technology easier for the driver to experience as they would expect a real sports car.”


When the first-generation TT came on the market in 1998 it was a revolution its strictly geometrical, coherent design language it an icon with huge For the third TT generation, the Audi have returned to many of ideas and placed them in a new that is as dynamic as it is diverse.

The of the new TT is dominated by horizontal lines. The grille is much broader and than that of the previous with a powerful line it into two zones. Starting in the top of the grille, sharp contours run in a V the hood, which bears the Audi rings as on the Audi R8 sports car (combined fuel in l/100 km: 14.9 12.4 18.97 US mpg); combined CO2 in g/km: 349 289 (561.66 465.10

The air intakes feature struts direct part of the flow from the front to the flanks.

The headlights give the new TT’s a determined look. Xenon units are standard, and Audi can provide LED headlights or ones in Audi Matrix LED technology, the high beam is generated by individual LEDs. On both there is an unmistakable contour by the separating strip in the headlights, is illuminated by light guides.

The LED headlights consist of 12 LEDs and another Audi innovation: turn signals that up sequentially in the direction in which the is steering. The predictive cornering uses navigation data to the cone of light into the before the steering wheel is

From the side, the new Audi TT is lean and muscular; it rests low on the as if ready to pounce. At 4.18 (13.71 ft), the Coupé is exactly the same length as its though its wheelbase has grown by 37 mm in) to 2,505 mm (8.22 ft), for especially short overhangs. It is mm (6.01 ft) wide, and has the same as the previous model at 1,353 mm ft).

A lot of the details of the new Audi profile are reminiscent of the first-generation of the classic. The contour of the sill a striking refracting edge, the broad wheel arches their own geometric bodies. The wheel arch breaches the of the hood, which continues the door as a tornado line and almost horizontally through to the as a strong body shoulder.

The flat greenhouse gives the of being an independent unit and the kink in the rear side gives it additional tension. The flap on the right side is the classic circle and surrounded by screws; a light tap on the TT logo and the opens. This shape is reminiscent of the first-generation TT.

What is new is there is no tank lid beneath the This means that is nothing to be unscrewed and the pump slots straight into the neck, just like in racing.

Specifically at the tail, lines underline the impression of the new sporty width. Together the LED and Audi Matrix LED headlights, the lights also have turn signals. Another to the front headlights: the strip in the lights, which also a daytime running light another Audi innovation. The brake light is an extremely strip positioned under the of the rear spoiler.

It plays an part in defining the tail silhouette.

At a speed of 120 km/h mph) a spoiler extends the trunk lid to improve both air and downforce. All models have two round exhaust tailpipes. are again reminiscent of the original TT.

all Audi S models, the TTS exhales four oval tailpipes.

The S line exterior package the design of the bumpers, air intakes, grille, sills and the rear even sharper and sportier. And is even more dynamic, 18” wheels and a body rests 10 mm (0.39 in) lower.

Lightweight construction is one of Audi’s areas of expertise. The second-generation TT already featured an Audi Frame (ASF) body from aluminum and steel. For the new TT, has systematically taken this construction principle even in line with the idea: the amount of the right material in the place for optimal functions.

The underbody structure has optimized loads and is made of modern, and ultra-high-strength steel alloys. In the of the passenger cell that are to the most structural stress, steel panels, which are ultra-high-strength and light are used constitute 17 percent of the body’s

The side sills and roof are made of extruded aluminum that are integrated into the using cast aluminum This structural principle a very rigid and safe The aluminum side sections and complete the structure.

The hood, and trunk lid are also made of light metal.

All in all, the engineers have, for the second in a row, succeeded in significantly the unladen weight of the Audi TT. At the model change in 2006, up to 90 kg lb) were saved, and the 2.0 TFSI variant of the new TT weighs just kg (2,711.69 lb). This it around 50 kg (110.23 lb) lighter its predecessor.

The low overall weight is proof of Audi’s expertise in construction. It impacts positively on acceleration, handling and fuel


Clearly structured with a taut surface and almost floating lines the is the embodiment of the new Audi TT’s sports car character. As with the horizontal lines and surfaces the width of the interior. The center console, which supports the when driving fast bends, and the door panels similar flowing shapes.

The was once again: “less is Clear, purist lines both the lightness and the uncompromising of the Audi TT’s interior. Two ingenious design and technically tricks enabled the designers to an instrument panel that is slender:

The instrument cluster and the MMI screen been combined to form a digital unit the so-called virtual cockpit. In addition, the for the air conditioning system are positioned in the air vents.

Seen from the instrument panel resembles the of an aircraft; the round air vents a TT feature are reminiscent of jet engines their turbine-like design. The also contain all the controls for the air conditioning system and the optional air conditioning system (standard in the

The controls for seat heating, direction, air distribution and air flow are located at their center; the selected is shown on small in the automatic air conditioning system. The control panel is located the central air vents. The 3D-designed switches activate the hazard lights, Audi drive and the assistance functions.

The standard seats in the new Audi TT have head restraints and are positioned than in the predecessor model. with the seats in the predecessor they are more than kilograms (11.02 lb) lighter. As an and as standard in the TTS there are newly S sport seats with contoured and pneumatically adjustable sections that are exceptionally and provide excellent support.

The new steering wheel has a flattened and aluminum-look clasps encompass the It also has a driver airbag takes up 40 percent less without compromising safety, and emphasizes the sense of visual

Countless details demonstrate the standards which Audi on interior design and craftsmanship. include the newly designed, gear lever, the very engaging MMI rotary pushbutton and the finished loudspeaker covers light guides in the optional Olufsen sound system.

As a 2+2 the new Audi TT is a sports car that is suitable for everyday use. The has a capacity of 305 liters (10.77 ft), which is 13 liters cubic ft) more than and can be extended by folding the rear backrests forward.

Colors and

The new Audi TT offers a far more and colorful range of colors its predecessor. There are 11 exterior one of which is exclusively for the S line. of the colors in the range are new for the TT, and two of these are new for Audi: Nano Gray and Red.

There are also two paints available for the TTS crystal-effect Black and the highly expressive Blue.

There is a completely new of colors for the interior, too the Audi TT and the TTS offer three interior to choose from. For the first Audi is offering a two-tone including sporty contrasting for S line models.

The equipment for the new TTS includes extended interior that add individually selectable accents to the S sport seats the sides of the center console and the of the air vents. Customers with taste have many for customization. Upholstery in various and leather grades are available for the as well as three leather

The S sport seats have diamond quilting in the center

One special highlight is the exclusive selection which comprises a of two fine leather colors: murillo brown on the seats and a metallic shimmering stone-grey on the armrests, knee supports and Alternating contrasting stitching, aluminum, matching paint for the interior elements and a special floor mat are further features of elegant upholstery and trim.

For the the Audi designers have up with an innovative technical texture for the wings of the instrument It has a honeycomb-patterned, slightly raised that gives the Audi TTS a sporty feel.

Controls and displays

The operating for the new TTS has been revised from the up in line with the consistent car character, all the elements focus on the There are two variants of the multifunction wheel available. Drivers the top version can activate almost all from the steering wheel taking their eyes off the

The second control unit is the newly developed MMI terminal on the of the center tunnel. Two toggle activate the navigation/map, telephone, and media menus. There are two on both sides of the central pushbutton, supplemented by a main and a back button.

The driver can enter destinations using the on the top of the rotary pushbutton (from the package upwards) the MMI touch your personal handwriting. It is possible to scroll through or zoom in on maps.

The menu of the MMI resembles that of a smartphone, the free-text search. All important can be accessed directly. One special is the MMI direct search. This you to start writing immediately navigating, without having to use a set

Alongside the operations using the control panel, the TT offers a further possibility: the control system. Audi is breaking new ground in this too. For the first time in the TT, natural voice controls are that enable simple such as “Take me to Munich” or want to talk to Sabine” to the vehicle systems without to take your hands off the wheel.

Instead of the conventional displays, the new TT has the Audi virtual on board this fully instrument cluster sets new with its dynamic animations and graphics. Drivers can choose two display modes: In the classic the speedometer and rev counter are in the foreground; in mode the virtual instruments are

The space that becomes as a result provides ample for other functions, such as the map. In the Audi TTS there is a sporty mode. Here, the positioned rev counter dominates the

With a resolution of 1,440 x 540 the 12.3” TFT screen boasts sharp images. At work in the is a Tegra 30 graphic processor market leader Nvidia’s 3 series. At the lower edge of the virtual cockpit, the displays for temperature, time and mileage are visible.

Warning or information may also appear there.

(All consumption and output are provisional)

Audi offers the new TT and TTS three different four-cylinder with turbocharging and direct Their power output from 135 kW (184 hp) to 228 kW (310 The two TFSI gasoline engines and the TDI athletic power with efficiency.

The start-stop system is a feature.

For the launch of the TT, the 2.0 TDI will be with manual shift and drive. It delivers 135 kW (184 hp) and of 380 Nm (280.27 lb-ft). The new sports car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h mph) in 7.2 seconds and reaches a top of 235 km/h (146.02 mph).

fuel consumption is a mere 4.2 per 100 km (56.00 US mpg), which into CO2 emissions of 110 g/km g/mile), a new record low level in the car world.

The 2.0 TDI features two balancer shafts in the adjustable camshafts and a common injection system delivering pressure of 2,000 bar. The TT 2.0 TDI meets the Euro 6 standard thanks to its high efficiency, the “ultra” label.

The 2.0 TFSI is in two versions a 169 kW (230 hp) version for the TT and a 228 kW hp) version for the TTS. In both it unites various ultramodern the additional indirect injection the direct injection of the FSI, the valvelift system (AVS) to the valve … on the exhaust and thermal management, which a rotary valve module and an manifold integrated into the head.

In the Audi TT, the 2.0 TFSI torque of 370 Nm (272.90 lb-ft) 1,600 to 4,300 rpm. It the Coupé which has a six-speed transmission and front-wheel drive 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 6.0 and on up to an electronically governed top speed of 250 (155.34 mph).

On the version six-speed S tronic and quattro drive, the key figures are as follows: the from 0 to 100 km/h (62.14 takes 5.3 seconds; top speed is 250 (155.34 mph); fuel of 6.8 liters per 100 km (34.59 US mpg) and CO2 of 159 g per km (255.89 g/mile).

The dual-clutch shifts through the six gears any noticeable interruption in traction, and in model it can be controlled by paddles on the wheel. In the “efficiency” mode of drive select, the S tronic freewheel as soon as the driver his or her foot off the gas pedal.

The Audi TTS is a performer. It covers the standard in 4.7 seconds; its top speed is electronically at 250 km/h (155.34 mph). The 2.0 produces 380 Nm (280.27 lb-ft) of at an engine speed of between and 5,700 rpm.

Controllable in the exhaust system modulate the sound and make it even A manual transmission is standard. The S option includes launch which regulates maximum from a standstill.

In the new Audi TT, quattro permanent drive delivers additional traction and driving fun. It has consistently advanced and optimized for the new TT. Its electro-hydraulically controlled multi-plate is mounted on the rear axle.

The pump design reduces by around 1.5 kg (3.31 lb) compared the previous model. The distribution of torque between the axles is electronically within fractions of a

The intelligence of quattro drive in words, the software that precisely the possible torque between the front and rear is a completely new development especially for the TT. The control philosophy continuously the ambient conditions, driving and the driver’s wishes. This that the ideal distribution of is calculated and the TT’s dynamic characteristics enhanced in every

By networking quattro drive Audi drive select, the of the new Audi TT can adjust the all-wheel-drive to suit his or her individual requirements. In mode, this produces traction and balanced driving In “dynamic” mode, torque is to the rear axle earlier and to a degree, which means driving dynamics are enhanced especially on surfaces with low coefficients.

Alongside optimizing the dynamics, the advances made to drive also focused on the of efficiency. In the drive select mode the torque distribution is to optimize the level of efficiency. driving conditions and driver precisely allows for efficiency-optimized control which can even in the temporary shutdown of the quattro system.

In this operating state, the software carefully monitors the situation and activates the all-wheel before torque is once required at all four wheels. In way, quattro drive optimum efficiency along a level of traction and dynamic that is typically quattro.

The chassis also reflects the expertise behind the new Audi TT. The suspension is based on a McPherson aluminum components reduce the of the unsprung chassis masses. The rear suspension can process the and transverse forces separately.

One highlight is the new third generation of the damper control system, magnetic ride. Compared the previous version, it has been in terms of characteristic spread, dynamics and precision as well as friendliness.

Audi magnetic can be adjusted to three settings auto dynamic) via Audi select and, at the press of a either makes the compact car hug the road more tightly or it glide smoothly across the irrespective of which mode the selects. Magnetic ride delivers ultra-swift wheel-selective of the damper forces, which that in all driving situations is optimum contact between and road.

In this way, the new TT’s superb driving are further optimized, and body also ensures good behavior. The system is unique in market segment. Audi ride is standard on the Audi TTS and is as an option for all other TT versions.

highlight is the standard progressive its rack is designed such the ratio becomes more as the steering is turned. In this the new TT can be steered agilely and precisely little movement of the steering in downtown traffic and on winding roads.

The electromechanically driven and highly efficient progressive adapts its assistance to speed and the basis for the optional assistance Audi active lane and park assist.

With its chassis design and firm the new Audi TT handles superbly in all The body is lowered by 10 mm (0.39 on the TTS, with the S line package and with the adaptive control system, Audi ride.

The dynamic driving known as Audi drive is an option for the new Audi TT, but standard on the It controls the engine characteristics and the assistance. The driver can choose comfort, auto, dynamic, and individual modes.

In addition, drive select influences optional modules the S tronic, drive, the Audi magnetic system, which at the press of a makes the compact sports car hug the even more closely, and the sound. In efficiency mode, drive select influences the air and the start-stop system accordingly.
