The Audi TT also demonstrates the technological competence of the brand with the Four Rings in the chassis, which allows handling that is both dynamic and precise. The pivot bearings and subframe of the McPherson front suspension are made of aluminum. The rear suspension uses four steel links per wheel in order to process the longitudinal and lateral forces separately. Their springs and dampers are separate from one another and respond precisely.
The body is lowered by 10 mm (0.4 in) with the S line sport package or the adaptive damper control system Audi magnetic ride. The further suspension highlights include Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC) and progressive steering, which affords easy maneuvering, agile handling and smooth straight-line stability. Wheel-selective torque control, activated in fast cornering, improves handling as necessary by means of very slight brake interventions on the unloaded wheels on the inside of a curve.
With the Audi drive select dynamic handling system, standard in the new TT, the driver can select different modes (auto, comfort, dynamic and efficiency). The system can also influence the Audi magnetic ride damper control.
The wheel lineup contains numerous sporty variants. Standard are the 17-inch lightweight wheels, with tires of size 225/50. Audi and Audi Sport offer 18, 19 and 20-inch wheels in attractive designs, including a matt titanium-look, as options. A tire pressure indicator is standard.
Powerful brakes are located behind the large wheels; the front discs are internally ventilated. Red brake calipers are optionally available for the TTS (combined fuel consumption in l/100 km: 7.3 – 7.1* (32.2 – 33.1 US mpg); combined CO2 emissions in g/km: 166 – 161* (267.2 – 259.1 g/mi)). The electromechanical parking brake acts on the rear wheels.
*Fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures given in ranges depend on the tires/wheels used.
