The new Audi 2016 TT is getting a price jump, and now we know just how much of one. The automaker is releasing pricing info on the all-new third-generation model and the entry-level roadster comes with a roughly $2500 price hike.
Audi will offer the TT in three different models at three different price points, outlined in its pricing specs. The TT Coupe will be starting at $42,900, the TT Roadster at $46,400, and the TTS Coupe, which is the top of the line performance model, at $51,900. The TTS will come in a roadster only version. Plus, it will even come in a very limited Launch Edition.
Power wise, the Coupe and the Roadster will be equipped with 2.0-liter TFSI engines that pump out 220 horsepower with 258 pound feet of torque. The coupe clocks in the 0-60 in 5.3 seconds and the roadster comes in at 5.6 seconds. The TTS Coupe features a 2.0-liter TFSI engine as well but bumps horsepower up to 292 with 280 pound feet of torque. It also shaves a second off the 0-60 clocking in at 4.6. All models have a six-speed dual clutch S tronic transmission system.
All models feature Audi’s quattro all-wheel-drive system which has calibration sensors that relay information to the car 150 times every 10 milliseconds and adjust power accordingly to maximize performance. It also allows drivers to adjust the shift points, throttle response, and steering. The TTS raises the bar by coming standard with magnetic ride suspension that give the diver more custom control by choosing between dynamic, auto, comfort, and individual drive modes.
Technology wise the new models will feature Audi’s virtual cockpit which consists of a completely digital instrument cluster where drivers will control everything on a 12.3-inch display that includes the 3D graphics. The new technology will also included an updated version of Audi connect which allows for the ability to do things like have the car read-aloud news headlines, check Facebook and Twitter, and connect to over 7,000 Web radio stations.
The new TT will pay tribute to it’s roots while at the same time incorporating new design elements like a broader and flatter grill, sharp contours across the hood, an electric rear spoiler, and newly centrally mounted round exhaust tailpipes. All TT will also come standard with Audi’s iconic LED headlamp design.
The Launch Edition of the TTS will feature a black exterior, red Nappa interior leather, and exclusive 19-inch five-arm faceted forged wheels. To make it collectable, there will only be 75 made.
