New year, new set of updates. The German manufacturer announced it’s taking orders on the 2019 TTS in Europe.
Audi is taking advantage of the start of the New Year to open the 2019 TTS order book, which is getting some changes.
The transmission is the first thing Audi tackled in its small compact sports car. Indeed, the S tronic 6-speed transmission gives way to a 7-speed S tronic. The latter will be standard for 2019.
The Ingolstadt brand also gave the 2.0 TFSI a power boost for 2019. The 4-pot engine will now gain 14 hp, going from 292 hp to 306 hp. The TTS Coupe will shave a few tenths of a second off its 0-100 km/h time, reaching it in 4.5 seconds. The torque figure is also increasing and now reaches 295 lbs-ft.
A special version is also added to the lineup, the TTS competition. According to Audi, this edition adds « an especially refined exterior and an exclusive interior ».
As the photos show, a series of alterations have been made to the bodywork, including the bumpers.
No mention if all these improvements will be found in the North American version. We should soon find out.
