Audi sells his glamorous Beetle, TT, for 20 years now. Now it seems appropriate to give its third generation TT some update.
The Audi TT 2019 does not look much different from the 2018 model, although Audi promises a "more masculine, more progressive and evener sport" look. The base models become more aggressive fasciae, with the most obvious change – a set of vertical air valves – hanging out just below the tail lights. There are also some barbecue changes, and the S-line appearance packs a few more air inlets forward.
The actual benefits that come with the update go beyond the surface layer. There are a whole host of new standard equipment on the base model, including rain and light sensors, a driving mode selector, heated rear mirrors, a multifunction steering wheel and Audi Virtual Cockpit, which make the most of infotainment system features to a configurable meter display.
As before, TT is available as both coupe and convertible. The electronic folding soft top does not affect load capacity, and it takes about 10 seconds to open and close at speeds up to 31 km / h.
In Europe, TT has a wide range of engines, and it seems to continue. Audi promises "a range of gasoline engines at different levels of performance." Motor1 claims that Audi will offer a 2.0-liter I4 gas engine with three different power outputs – 197 or 245 horsepower for standard TT and 306 hp in jumped TTS form. A six-speed manual is available, as well as a seven-speed dual-coupling transmission, which Audi claims is new to 2019.
It's likely to take some time before Audi completed its drive assembly options for the United States. For context, 2018 TT packs a 220-horsepower I4. If you want more power you have to go up to the 292 horsepower TTS, using the same engine as Volkswagen Golf R.
2019 Audi TT is sold in Europe in the fourth quarter of 2018, and it is unclear when it comes to the United States. 2019 The TT coupon begins around 35,000 euros (about 41,000 dollars) in Europe, and while US pricing is not yet available, a 2018 TT starts at 43,950 USD in the United States.
