More masculine, more progressive and even sportier than before – the exterior design of the TT. The front features a three-dimensional Singleframe radiator grille. Large side air inlets emphasise width even in the basic version. At the rear, horizontal lines again underscore the width of the new Audi TT. There is no cap underneath the tank flap with its classic TT design; the driver can insert the gas pump nozzle directly into the opening – a typical sports car feature.
The TT Coupé and the TT Roadster are each 4.19 metres (13.7 ft) in length. Both body variants have short overhangs; their wheelbase measures 2.51 metres (8.2 ft). The new TT leaves the factory on 17-inch wheels; Audi and Audi Sport optionally offer 18, 19 and 20-inch wheels. Three new colours complete the range of paint finishes: cosmos blue, pulse orange and turbo blue (S line only).
The sports car character is also underscored by the driver-oriented interior with its clear lines. The slender instrument panel resembles an aircraft wing; the round air vents with integrated controls allude to jet engines – a classic TT detail. Sport seats with integrated head restraints are standard on the Audi TT. S sport seats (standard in the S line sport package) with pneumatically adjustable side bolsters are optionally available. The luggage compartment of the 2+2 seater affords 305 litres of space (10.8 cu ft) underneath the stretched tailgate, while the Roadster offers 280 litres (9.9 cu ft).
The driver assistance systems embody the TT philosophy: they relieve the driver of work, so that he or she can fully concentrate on the road. The line-up extends from the lane change assist Audi side assist, the lane departure warning system Audi active lane assist and traffic sign recognition to the park assist with display of the surroundings and a rearview camera.
Two decades after its debut, the Audi TT Coupé still captivates with its typical design language, its great driving pleasure and its comprehensive range of standard equipment. The Audi TT stands for driving pleasure, design and attention to detail. The compact sports car with its sporty exterior has been developed further without forgetting its history. The new Audi TT comes across as more masculine, more progressive and sportier than ever before. Powerful horizontals at the front radiate confidence. The hexagonal Singleframe grille is very wide and flat – similar to the Audi R8 high-performance sports car.
Like every open-top Audi, the TT Roadster comes with a soft top in either black or grey. The soft top has a taut fit, and its excellent sound insulation makes it an “acoustic top.” With a weight of 39 kilograms (86.0 lb), the top is very light and doesn’t compromise the luggage compartment. A standard feature, the electrical drive opens and closes the top in around ten seconds at vehicle speeds of up to 50 km/h (31.1 mph). Enjoy progressive light technology in the Audi TT Roadster: the optionally available Audi Matrix LED headlamps not only set new standards in terms of design, but also, above all, technically new standards, making your everyday life easier. So that you can focus exclusively on road traffic, you will be relieved in the Audi TT Roadster by intelligent driver assistance systems. Take advantage, for example, of the lane change assistant Audi side assist.
