Some details can not be covered with camouflage foil. Black-and-white patterns on the radiator grille of the TT protagonists would rather emphasize than hide. Therefore, the two experimental vehicles drive an important detail of the revised TT quite open: The grill of the facelift model exchanges cross struts against honeycombs.
Audi TT S-Line with TT RS look
The two half camouflaged Audi are obviously not top models. The TT RS carries two oval tailpipe trims on the outside of the rear apron. Audi uses four round tailpipes in the TTS. In addition, the wheels and brakes of the coupe are too small for the big engines .
So it's probably the S-Line package. An equipment line on the normal TT, can already be ordered for the basic model. This moves visually a good way up. In addition to the honeycombs in the grill, there is a new front apron, which is based on the TT RS. The same applies to the (non-camouflaged) side skirts . At the rear sits a hinted diffuser. Visually, the TT will be much faster.
The interior concept also remains: in the TT there is no central infotainment screen. All data is displayed in the virtual cockpit. The 12.3-inch display replaces classic round instruments in the TT as standard. Presumably, the second generation of the system with higher resolution and faster graphics is used.
More power and better emissions
The biggest changes will be under the hood. From the 1st of September 2018 stricter particle regulations for gasoline engines will apply in the EU. One year later, the Euro 6d-Temp emission standard is binding for all new vehicles with new test cycles. Audi therefore has to revise the engines thoroughly.
There will be particulate filters as standard for all gasoline engines. In the long term, Audi has to equip the diesel with an SCR catalytic converter, ie an AdBlue injection. It is questionable whether the TT is designed for it. Under certain circumstances, the diesel (2.0 TDI, 184 hp) could therefore be deleted in 2019.
We also expect an increase in performance. The 2.0-liter petrol engine could, for example, increase from 230 to 245 hp. Audi may optionally offer a differential lock for the front-wheel drive version. The aged six-speed S-Tronic (internally: DQ 250) will probably be replaced by the new seven-speed version (DQ 381).
