The facelift Audi TTS benefits from a matt aluminum silver look shine in the Singleframe grille with a TTS badge, the matt titanium black insert and a new horizontal blade in the bumper creating a striking frontal appearance.

The hinted vertical air outlets below the rear lights and the broadened diffuser with the four tailpipes of the exhaust system are particular highlights at the rear.
The extended standard feature list across the range includes Audi drive select dynamic handling system, Audi smartphone interface, parking aid plus, power-adjustable front seats and the multifunction steering wheel plus, with which the infotainment and voice control system can be controlled entirely using the steering wheel. Also standard are the illuminated USB ports as well as MMI navigation plus.

The range topping TTS Coupe Quattro 380Nm benefits from a 228kW/380Nm 2.0litre engine that sends drive to all 4-wheels via a standard 6-speed S Tronic transmission.
