Twenty years after the original Audi TT came on the market, and the compact-coupe still looks fresh and strong.
In 2018, Audi introduced a facelift for the third generation.
The exterior has been changed discretely and brought a new three-dimensional Singleframe radiator grille design and larger side air inlets. The new, optional, S line exterior package underscored the sporty character of the car. It included a full-length front splitter, a radiator grille in titanium black, and specific side sills with inserts as well as a sporty rear end. A wider diffuser was added to the back.
Inside, the driver had the Audi Virtual Cockpit, which featured an additional sport display, providing information on engine output, torque and g forces. Inside the air-vents from the central part of the dashboard, the designers installed displays for temperature, air-flow, and fan speed. A nice space-saving method. The infotainment system, named MMI, was simplified and it featured just six key-buttons on the center console, between the front seats. It integrated a touch-pad on top of the rotary knob. As before, the TT was fitted with four seats, but only those in the front were offered enough room to be used.
The 2018 model was fitted with the same 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and more power choices. It was mated with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DSG (dual-clutch). A special version, TTS, was offered with a 2.5-liter unit.
