Audi's redesigned 2019 TT gets new engines, special editions

Audi TT

Now, it's seen fit to give its third-generation TT a bit of a refresh.

The front end features a three-dimensional Singleframe grille, while side air inlets can be found on all variants.

At least in Europe, the vehicle is getting a broader range of more powerful turbocharged 2.0-litre engine trims, ranging from a 197-hp base model - paired to a six-speed manual or a seven-speed auto - to a 245-hp variant, which only gets the auto but is available in Quattro AWD trim. Matrix LED lights are now available, while OLED rear lamps appear on the options list for the first time.

While 17-inch wheels are standard, 18-, 19- and 20-inch items will be optionally available, along with three new colours (cosmos blue, pulse orange and turbo blue).

Audi says the updated TT will feature "higher-powered engines", though specific output details remain unclear. The latter now hits 100 km/h a tenth of a second quicker than before, at a claimed 4,5 seconds. Globally, the TT will offer both a six-speed manual and a seven-speed dual-clutch, but it looks like the USA will get dual-clutch options only.

Adidas goes green; to use only recycled plastic by 2024
Globally, 14 percent of plastic is recycled compared to over 50 percent of paper and around 90 percent of iron and steel. This move will have an impact on their manufacturing of everything from shoes to sports bras and everything in between.

The TT didn't need much massaging for 2019.

A new TT S Black Edition will sit at the top of the 2019 model range, with LED lights, special decals and a fixed rear wing.

In addition to the small changes made across the range, Audi will also offer a limited-run TT 20 Years anniversary model to mark the launch of the original TT in 1998.

Prices for the rest of the range haven't been announced, but Audi has given a £45,000 estimate for the flagship TT S Coupe. The German automaker isn't linking the changes to the engine lineup to the new WLTP emissions standard, but it's hard to believe the new, more stringent regime hasn't been a major factor in Audi deciding to stick with just the 2.0 TFSI.
