Audi Prices 2016 TT Coupe and Roadster – CarandDriverBlog
-Audi’s stylish third-generation TT sports car goes on sale soon. How do we know? The company has released pricing for the base TT coupe and convertible, plus the sportier TTS coupe; Audi also has outlined the cars’ standard features, option packages, and more. The TT is all-new for 2016, sharing its MQB underpinnings with a plethora of recent VW Group products, and while it’s plain to see the car is as attractive as ever, we’ve driven all three versions—coupe, roadster, and TTS—and can report that they’re also as fun to drive as ever.
-For 2016, Audi didn’t change much on the TT’s standard-equipment list, adding only its new MMI Touch infotainment controller (with a touch-sensitive pad that can discern finger writing) and LED headlights to an already comprehensive roster. Carryover features include Quattro all-wheel drive, a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, automatic climate control, auto-dimming mirrors, a Homelink garage-door opener, heated 12-way power front seats, a leather and faux-suede-trimmed interior, a flat-bottom steering wheel with shift paddles, 18-inch wheels, and LED taillights. The TTS model adds sports seats with adjustable bolsters; 19-inch wheels; and special engine, exhaust, and suspension tuning.
-Despite only minimal content changes, the 2016 TT coupe is $2580 dearer than last year’s model, ringing in at a rich $43,825. The roadster is $3500 more than the coupe, and $3080 more expensive than last year’s topless TT. The mighty TTS’s price barely budges—at $52,825, it’s just $730 pricier than the 2015 TTS. Yet-to-be-priced options include 19-inch wheels with summer tires for the TT, sport seats for the roadster, red brake calipers for the TTS, and a 680-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system.
2016 ABT Audi TT Review – GTSpirit
When we first drove the new Audi TT it did not blow us away. It is trying too hard to please everybody and for those craving the sporty side it left a lot to be desired. Audi tuner ABT Sportsline promised me their package would solve exactly that. Following our recent test drive of the ABT RS6-R the company in Kempten invited us again for another test drive. This time they had prepared a ABT tuned Audi TT for us. Based on the Audi TT 2.0 TFSI ABT created a TTS rival with 310hp and 440Nm of torque. Compared to 230hp and 370Nm for the standard Audi TT 2.0 TFSI.
2016 Audi TT Priced From $43,825 – MotorAuthority
Audi’s new TT, the nameplate’s third generation, made its debut more than a year ago. We’ve even had a chance to drive the car and now it’s finally ready for its arrival in U.S. showrooms. Today, Audi confirmed that the new TT, which arrives as a 2016 model, will be priced from $43,825, including a destination charge of…
2016 Audi TT [w/video] – AutoBlog
What came first, the metrosexual or the Audi TT? While it was close, the descriptor-turned-epithet preceded the 1995 concept car by one year. However, they were both notable cultural evolutions and they happened to work together perfectly. Hugh Grant, playing the cad Will Freeman in the 2002 film About a Boy, could not have chosen a better example of character than his silver TT.
A decade later, the original TT was still important enough that when rumors of the third-generation coupe began to surface in late 2012, the most exciting fantasy was that the 2014 coupe might “recapture some of the distinctiveness and impact” of a 16-year-old car (the TT came to market in 1998). Even speculation by dedicated Audi observers thought the brand would do something novel, even if not mimicry. The obvious takeaway: no one was going to be lighting any candles for the departed second generation. All of that is why when the first leaked image slipped onto the Internet, people began to get suspicious. When the third generation took the stage at the Geneva Motor Show, we could almost hear the digital deflation over the Ethernet, our poll results notwithstanding.
Yet it’s still the TT, and in spite of having seen its interior and virtual cockpit and clocked its specs, we couldn’t judge it before heading to Marbella, Spain to drive it. What we found out was while it’s better than the second generation, it’s still very much a TT.
2016 Audi TT/TTS lineup makes U.S. debut – KelleyBlueBook
The all-new 2016 Audi TT/TTS Coupe and TT Roadster, previously launched in Europe, are making their debut in U.S. trim at Los Angeles. As documented in our earlier coverage, the all-new Gen III TT set remains aluminum intensive but now is based on the Volkswagen Group’s latest MQB modular platform that trims about 100 pounds from the base car’s curb weight. The 2016 iteration is wrapped in bolder bodywork set off with standard LED lamps that give it a new look. A fully revised suspension – including the Magnetic Ride dampers that are standard on the hotter TTS Coupe – endow all versions with better dynamics.
Sans top and two seats, Audi TT roadster equals coupe handling – CNET
by Wayne Cunningham
Audi launches the TT roadster and coupe simultaneously, the former offering open air driving and excellent handling, but less passenger and cargo room.
Compared to its coupe sibling, the 2016 Audi TT roadster loses two seats and reduces luggage room, but in this case, less feels like more as the roadster complements similarly excellent handling with the glory of an open sky overhead.
