Audi TT Launch - 4

The all-new Audi TT coupe has been launched here in Kuala Lumpur today. The third-generation model, which was made its debut at last year’s Geneva Motor Show, represents a modern and sleek interpretation of the original model that broke into the two-door sports coupe scene back in 1998.

While many models tend to get bigger over the years, the new TT is shorter by 10 mm than the predecessor, measuring 4,177 mm in length. The only thing that has grown is the wheelbase, now at 2,505 mm, making for shorter overhangs and an overall more aggressive stance.

In terms of design, while sporting sharp horizontal lines and a more angular profile, the TT stays true to its roots by retaining several key design features such as the retractable rear spoiler, which extends from the trunk lid at speeds above 120 km/h, lidless aluminium fuel flap and the signature twin tail pipes. The coupe struts around with sharp-looking xenon headlights and LED daytime running lights that flank the trademark single frame front grille.

Like before, the cabin of the TT is designed with the theme “less is more” in mind. The dashboard is equipped with nothing but the aviation-inspired round air-conditioner vents as well as the controls. A 12.3-inch instrument cluster behind the multifunction flat-bottom steering wheel houses the Audi virtual cockpit, which comprises of MMI radio and 3D navigation system.

Under the hood is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder TFSI engine that generates 230 hp and 370 Nm of torque from 1,600 to 4,300 rpm. The mill is combined with a six-speed S tronic transmission that helps the coupe to reach 100 km/h from a standstill in 5.9 seconds, with a top speed of 250 km/h. Despite the performance, the TT achieves a fuel consumption of 6.3 litres per 100km and a CO2 emission of 146 g per km.

Electronic and assistance features include a start stop system with energy recuperation, Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC), Traction Control (ASR), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), parking aid plus with selective display as well as ABS.
