brought their recently updated Audi TT sports car to India and priced it at an
industry spanking Rs.60.35lakh ex-showroom Delhi.
of the TT is the 3rd generation of the model and at the front, a 2.0
litre TFSI engine producing 230bhp and 370Nm of torque is mounted under the
bonnet. Mated to a 6-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission the TT will cover
from 0-100kmph in 5.3 seconds and a top speed of 250kmph while the power is
transferred from the engine to all four wheels with Quattro’s permanent all
wheel drive system, while in Dynamic mode, power increases to the rear bias.
Besides dynamic mode, the TT has 4 more different driving modes to choose from;
Comfort, Auto, Individual and a new efficient mode which finds the most
economical engine and transmission mapping to save fuel.
LED lights are fitted, but Matrix LEDs are optional. The new aggressive sharp
edged shape of the TT is a new design philosophy for Audi. The key word for the
philosophy is “fast” with a broader stance and aggressive look, while
maintaining its compactness but it still maintains a look of an Audi, and
unmistakeably a TT.
are also refreshed with an Audi MMI system with a virtual cockpit. Gone are the
days when a cool screen flipped out of the centre of the dash. The TT’s
infotainment system is integrated into the driver’s digital instrument cluster
which can also be used as a navigation map. The climate control knobs have been
moved onto the turbine shaped air-vents themselves in the centre. Even will all
the gadgets and a 4 wheel drive system, the new TT weighs only 1335kgs, 50kgs
lighter than the previous model. Audi has achieved the feat by engineering a
light weight aluminium chassis and using aluminium and steel parts on the body
and that bodes well for efficiency.
Head, Audi India said; “Both our product launches of 2015 – the limited edition
Audi R8LMX and the all new TT coupe have a strong sporty flair. This highlights
Audi’s heritage in sportscars, our leadership in this segment in India and our
seriousness towards this Ultra-luxurious and indulgent market space. Having
said this, we are gearing up with other thrilling surprises on the product
front and our Audi fans will surely be spoilt for choices this year.”
