Audi SA has just announced that the TTS will soon be available locally.
TT vs TTS
The Audi TT models launched locally in early 2015 were a choice of front-wheel or quattro drive. The Audi TT coupé 2.0T or Audi TT coupé 2.0T quattro. 169kW and 370Nm from the multi-use 2.0 TFSI engine is not to be sniffed at, with the quattro (thanks to its off-the-line grip) achieving a 5.3-second acceleration to 100 time.
The TTS quattro pumps up the turbo power from 169 to a more Audi S-like 228kW (59kW to save you the maths). Torque is up by 10 to 380Nm. Performance S-es up to 4.6 sec for 0-100km/h. Top speed on all Audi TT including TTS are restricted to 250km/h.
The extra power does not come at too much of a petrol-pump sacrifice, with Audi listing the 2.0T quattro at 6.4 l/100km and 151 g/km compared to 6.7 and 155 for the TTS quattro.
No more manual – all Audi TT is offered in 6-speed S tronic automatic only.
