Spyshots: 2019 Audi TTS Roadster Playing with Rally Car Lights

Having arrived in Norther Europe (the preferred destination for many upcoming car models) for further testing, Audi's facelifted version of the TT shows itself in the snow, fully equipped with two rally lights for better nighttime driving. The lights, of course, will not make it into the production version, but if it did, the roadster would not look half bad.

The refreshed TT Roadster will be launched together with the Coupe and RS versions, probably late 2019 or early 2019. Changes to the latest version will include pretty much the same tweaks as the Coupe version, meaning minor visual novelties (modified front and rear fascias) and possibly new design for front and backlights. At the interior, there will probably be an updated infotainment system.

As for the engines, some improvements to the existing powerplants are to be expected, but no significant change is planned. Currently, the TTS Roadster version is equipped with a 2.0 TFSI engine developing 310 hp, paired with either a 6-speed automatic (DSG) or manual transmission. The other versions of the TT, are powered by a choice of two gasoline and one diesel engines with an output between 180 and 230 hp.

The TTS can reach 60 mph in 4.9 seconds (for the automatic version) and can keep accelerating until it tops at 249 km/h (155 mph).

Although the stock modification is not all that extensive, rumor is Audi will offer both new and more personalization options and equipment. There is no information yet about the prices of the updated cars or the options to be provided with them.

The facelift currently in the works will update the variant that made its debut in Paris in 2014. Audi assembles its TT models at the Gyor plant in Hungary (alongside A3/S3/RS3 Sedan and A3/S3 Cabriolet), where it rolled out in October last year its no. 500,000 vehicle, a red Audi TT RS.
