Audi TT got leaked just a day before being officially revealed. The company has officially unveiled the revised coupe and convertible. The new updated Audi TT now also comes with more standard kits and features and sportier exterior design. Also, the third-gen Audi TT has received major updates in terms of mechanical components.
The newly revealed 2018 Audi TT will be offered with three engine options- a 2-litre 40 TFSI, 2-litre 45 TFSI and 2-litre turbocharged petrol engine. The 40 TFSI motor churns out 194 bhp, the 45 TFSI engine is good for 245 bhp and the turbo-petrol engine generates 302 bhp. The transmission duty will be performed by either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Apart from this, the new Audi TT also features progressive steering, four-link rear suspension, Electronic Stabilization Control and the wheel-selective torque control system that activates during fast cornering and improving the overall handling.
In terms of design, the 2018 Audi TT features a new single-frame grille, large side air dams at the sides and a horizontal line at the rear profile. However, the optional S line package comes with a front splitter, vertical air inlets, titanium black grille and side sills. The exterior of the car also sports LED Matrix headlights as an optional feature as well as 17, 18, 19, and 20-inch alloy wheels to choose from. On the other hand, the standard kit also offers more features including Audi Select drive dynamic handling, multifunction steering wheel, rain and light sensor, heated ORVMs and illuminated USB ports with Bluetooth with the base variant.
Also, in order to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the TT, Audi will also introduce a limited edition TT 20 Years model. It will be a limited edition model based on the original TT concept revealed in 1995. The special TT will be limited to 999 units and will come with 45 TFSI engine.
Though the third gen Audi TT retails in the Indian market, but the German luxury automaker has not confirmed about launching the limited edition TT in India.
