You need to be rather interrogative to notice any major difference in the 2019 Audi TT coupe its predecessor. Nonetheless, there are new engines and more standard features for 2019 along with refined exterior styling.
The 2019 Audi TTS will come with one turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with two different tunes in three trims – 40 TFSI, 45 TFSI, and 45 TFSI Quattro. The base 40 TFSI engine produces 197 horsepower (145 kilowatts) and 236 pound-feet (320 Newton-meters) of torque.
The 45 TFSI and TFSI Quattro powertrains deliver 245 hp (180 kW) and 272 lb-ft (370 Nm of torque). The Audi TTS 2.0-liter engine produces 306 hp (225 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque.
The front-wheel-drive 40 TFSI and 45 TFSI further brings along a six-speed manual or seven-speed S Tronic transmission. The S Tronic is the only transmission available for the 45 TFSI Quattro trim.
The TTS comes with Quattro all-wheel drive and the seven-speed S Tronic transmission as standard. For 2019, Audi has expanded the amount of standard equipment you get in an entry-level TT.
Standard features now include Audi drive select dynamic handling, heated mirrors, light and rain sensors, a multifunction steering wheel, and the Audi virtual cockpit. There are also illuminated USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity.
Seventeen-inch wheels are standard on the TT and 18s on the TTS. Optional sizes include 19- and 20-inch wheels.
The company further says that it will be releasing two special edition models. One, the “Audi TT 20 years” anniversary model has a 999-car production limit.
It incorporates numerous styling elements from the Roadster concept of 1995. It features arrow gray paint, Matrix OLED rear lights, glossy metal gray 19-inch wheels, stainless steel tailpipes and unique badge style.
The other special model is the TTS line competition, which builds off the S line exterior package to give the trim a unique appearance. Inside, there’s an additional sport screen in the Audi virtual cockpit and contrasting colored stitching.
One thing that Audi does right over the years is loading up all its promises for us to behold and on this model we expect just that and much more.
