Snapped in snowy conditions, the facelifted TTS is instantly recognizable as designers didn’t make any drastic changes. That being said, the car has been equipped with a new front bumper which features sportier air intakes. The headlights also have thin strips of camouflage of them and this suggests they could receive some minor updates as well.
The rest of the design largely carries over but the rear fascia has subtle styling tweaks. The modest upgrades are expected to continue in the cabin as the car will likely have an upgraded digital instrument cluster, revised trim / upholstery options and additional semi-autonomous driving technology.
The turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine is expected to carryover but it remains to be seen if there will be any performance modifications. If Audi eschews upgrades, we can expect the engine to produce 310 PS (228 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in as little as 4.6 seconds before topping out at 250 km/h (155 mph).
The facelifted TT lineup is expected to be introduced later this year and rumors have suggested there could be a new entry-level variant which uses a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine.
