The TTs has always been pretty, cute, very popular, but never a true sportscar, if we exclude the TT RS. This new model changes all that with probably the best interior in the business, a sharp outer look and plenty of technology. Everything that lights up does so using LEDs. We like the finish on the grille and the strip of light connecting the taillights, all the time knowing that the digital speedometer doubles as a navigation system.
This clip was shot on April 30 by Youtuber JueGreg in Budapest, Hungary. It's gone relatively unnoticed until now, but it's the first one where you can hear the new 2-liter TFSI engine from up close. This is almost the same unit as in the S3 family, but it makes 310 PS, 10 more than the S3 and 40 more than the old TTS. The active exhaust system features butterfly valves and sounds decent considering this is a 4-cylinder.
Linked to an S-tronic twin-clutch gearbox and quattro all-wheel drive, the new TTS will sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds, which makes it faster than a Porsche Cayman S. Of course, it will not be as fun on the edge as a Porsche, but the Audi is going to be slightly cheaper at about €50,000 and will get excellent fuel economy: 7.1 l/100km on the combined cycle, equivalent to 164 grams of CO2 per kilometer.
