High power, understated, with ample features and a high degree of everyday practicality – all of these strengths come together in the Audi S models. Each model applies its power to the road with quattro permanent all-wheel drive.
The new TTS Coupé and TTS Roadster top the TT model range. Their 2.0 TFSI engines produce 228 kW (310 hp) and 380 Nm (280.3 lb-ft) of torque. The coupe accelerates from stationary to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 4.9 seconds, and moves on to a top speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph). With the optional S tronic transmission the figure drops to 4.6 seconds. The figures for the Roadster are 5.2 seconds and 4.9 seconds (with manual transmission and S tronic respectively).
In the NEDC cycle, the sonorous four-cylinder engine in the coupe has a fuel consumption of just 7.1 liters per 100 kilometers (33.1 US mpg) and CO2 emissions of 164 grams per kilometer (263.9 g/mi). With the S tronic the figures are 6.7 liters per 100 kilometers (35.1 US mpg) and 155 grams of CO2 per kilometer (249.4 g/mi). The figures for the Roadster (manual/S tronic) are 7.3/6.9 liters per 100 kilometers (32.2/34.1 US mpg) and 169/159 grams CO2 per kilometer (272.0/255.9 g/mi). Playing a major role in this concerto of efficiency are highly-effective technologies from Audi – indirect fuel injection as a supplement to FSI injection, the Audi valve lift system for the exhaust valves, and thermal management with integration of the exhaust manifold in the cylinder head.
The vehicle’s low weight also makes a contribution towards reducing fuel consumption. The TTS Coupé weighs in at a curb weight of just 1,365 kg (3,009.3 lb) – a figure that is largely attributable to the use of ultra high-strength steel and aluminum in the body. The Roadster has a curb weight of just 1,450 kilograms (3,196.7 lb).
Both TTS models transfer their power to the road via the dynamic quattro permanent all-wheel drive. The wheels are 18 inches in diameter, and the Audi drive select dynamic handling system is standard equipment. Progressive steering varies the steering gear ratio according to the steering wheel input, and torque vectoring complements the work of the quattro drive system at cornering performance limits. The body sits ten millimeters (0.4 in) lower, and the adaptive electronic damping system Audi magnetic ride is standard equipment. New, very lightweight aluminum fixed caliper brakes with large disks are used on the front wheels.
The all-digital Audi virtual cockpit is standard. With a resolution of 1,440 x 540 pixels, the 12.3” TFT screen boasts brilliantly sharp images. As well as the classic view and “Infotainment” mode, the TTS models also have a third, sporty mode. Here, the centrally positioned rev counter dominates the display.
Audi TTS Coupé Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 7.3 – 6.7 (32.2 – 35.1 US mpg) Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 168 – 155 (270.4 – 249.4 g/mi)
Audi TTS Roadster Combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 7.5 – 6.9 (31.4 – 34.1 US mpg) Combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 173 – 159 (278.4– 255.9 g/mi)
