2016 Audi TT Coupe and Roadster debut in LA

Audi is making the North American debut of the new 2016 Audi TT Coupe and Roadster at the LA Auto Show. The cars have a new design focusing on innovative technology and driver focused performance according to Audi. Both the Roadster and the Coupe version of the car will share the same 2.0L TFSI engine producing 220hp and 258 lb-ft of torque in standard models.

The up level version of the car, the Audi TTS Coupe, will pack a turbo 2.0L TFSI engine under the hood producing 292hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. All of the TT models have Audi's famous permanent Quattro all-wheel drive system and Audi drive select system as standard equipment.

The Audi drive select system allows the driver to adjust things like shift points, throttle response, steering, and the standard magnetic ride suspension between dynamic, auto, comfort, and individual modes. The AWD system in the cars has been tuned to shift power to the wheels with the most grip and is rear-wheel biased in dynamic mode.

All of the Audi TT and TTS models will be available with a six-speed dual-clutch S tronic transmission. Audi has packed some interesting tech inside the car with a virtual cockpit with a central MMI monitor with a conventional instrument cluster in a 12.3-inch TFT display powered by a quad core NVIDIA Tegra 30 processor. The new TT and TTS will land in the US in the second half of 2015 with pricing announced closer to ship date.
