It’s been a few hours since Audi has officially revealed the updated TT Coupe and Roadster but now the German car maker detailed the revisions that include a new special edition and the new powertrains.
The 180PS 1.8 TFSI engine previously offered in entry-level models was dropped in favor of a 2.0-liter TFSI with 197PS (194hp). In fact, the turbocharged 2.0-liter TFSI unit will be the only engine available, offered in three different power guises. Mid-spec models that previously came with 230PS (226hp) are boosted to 245PS (241hp).
Audi will apply its latest naming convention to the aforementioned models, meaning that the 197PS version is badged 40 TFSI and the 245PS 45 TFSI.
The third version is of course the TT S model, which sees its output slightly dropping to 306PS (from 310PS) due to the latest WLTP regulations. Despite the drop in power, Audi claims that the 2019 TT S is fractionally faster in both Coupe and Roadster forms in the 0-62mph procedure, scoring 4.5 and 4.8 seconds respectively.
As for the facelifted TT RS, it will continue using the 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbo engine but Audi hasn’t released any figures yet. It’s expected to join the range from next year.
New Special “TT 20 Years” Edition
In addition and in order to celebrate the model’s 20th anniversary, Audi will offer a new special edition, the “TT 20 Years” model. The new anniversary edition features Nappa leather seats in moccasin brown and specific Panuka contrasting stitching that harks back to the early cars with their ‘Baseball Leather’ upholstery.
Other features include special badging on the steering wheel and gear lever, as well as stainless steel tailpipes, Matrix OLED taillights and matt-finished Audi rings on the side sills. Customers will be given the choice of either Arrow grey or Nano grey paint finishes. Production of the new special edition TT will be capped to 999 examples.
