Meet the new 2015 Audi TT. Similar to the old TT. Except this one has a lot of power and the programmable cockpit of the future. Welcome to Germany's newest sports car that is dripping with sporty dynamism.
By now we've all seen the 2015 Audi TT, which looks like the last car just pumped up on a bit of steroids. The TT's evolution continues to make it look angrier and angrier and more and more aggressive. The wheelbase has grown slightly to make it more stable at speed.
It appears there will be two engines for the TT in the USA: A 2.0 with 230 horsepower and 273 pound feet of torque and then a 310 horsepower monster which is almost certainly the same engine as the one in the Audi S3 and VW Golf R. There will also be a diesel, but we're not sure if that will make it to our shores. Transmission options are a six-speed manual or six speed dual clutch. The regular TT takes 6.0 to reach 62 with front wheel drive and the manual, while quattro and the DSG drops that to 5.3. The TTS will do that in 4.7 seconds. The manual transmission is standard and the DSG with launch control is optional.
Compared to the last TT, the new car has lost about 100 pounds to clock in around 2,712 pounds.
The TT has LTE connectivity for incredibly fast downloads. It also has Audi's virtual cockpit that was first shown at CES earlier this year. It combines MMI and the instrument cluster to create one screen, a unique concept that will make its way across the Audi lineup in the coming years.
