Test Drive: Audi TT Coupé 2.0 TFSI S tronic in Singapore

Tried out the Audi TT Coupé 2.0 TFSI S tronic last week to check out the latest facelift for the luxury sports car. This is the first half of the review, which concludes tomorrow.

It's been more than 25 years since the Audi TT concept car was first showcased in 1995 at the IAA in Frankfurt. The first Coupé premiered in 1998, with the 2nd generation in 2006 and the 3rd gen in 2014.

The design vocab of the Audi TT Coupé comprises geometric shapes, circles and strong lines. Managed to find matching environs to shoot the car.

The first Coupé premiered in 1998, with the second generation in 2006 and the third generation in 2014.

The latest Audi TT Coupé is now more masculine, progressive and sportier.

The front features a 3D Singleframe radiator grille with large side air inlets emphasising its width.

The rear of the latest Audi TT Coupé features horizontal lines that underscore the width of the sports car.

Headlights with LED technology is standard for Singapore, while the dynamic turn signals are a visual highlight.

The Audi TT Coupé stands for driving pleasure, design and close attention to detail.

Audi Singapore offers 18-inch wheels; Audi and Audi Sport optionally offer 18-, 19- and 20-inch wheels.

Three new colors are cosmos blue, pulse orange and turbo blue (S line only).

Aluminum elements in the driver-oriented interior, progressive rim design, a short, ball-shaped gear lever knob, characteristic tank cap and round, dual-branch tailpipes are among the typical features of this compact sports car.

Audi offers the S tronic six-speed dual-clutch transmission as standard for Singapore.

The close-ratio lower gears enable powerful acceleration, while the wide ratio of each transmission’s highest gear reduces the engine speed and fuel consumption.

No cap lies underneath the tank flap of the Audi TT Coupé in the classic TT design; the driver can insert the gas pump nozzle directly into the port – a typical sports car feature.

The sports car character of the Audi TT Coupé is underscored by the driver-oriented interior with the shape of the slender instrument panel resembling an aircraft wing when viewed from above.

The round air vents with integrated controls is a classic TT detail that conjures the high tech image and sophistication of jet engines.

S Sport seats with integrated head restraints are standard on the Audi TT for Singapore.

The Audi TT Coupé has a spacious boot that gets even bigger when you fold down the rear seats.

The luggage compartment of the 2+2 seater Audi TT Coupé has 305 liters of space underneath the stretched tailgate (280 liters on the Roadster).

All indicators appear in digital form on the 12.3-inch display of the Audi TT virtual cockpit.

The driver can choose between two modes: in the classic view, the speedometer and tachometer take center stage.

In Infotainment mode, content such as the navigation map is enlarged.

The center console of the Audi TT Coupé.

The MMI terminal on the center console of the Audi TT Coupé has six keys.

The MMI navigation plus with MMI touch integrates on the upper surface of the rotary/push-button control a touchpad that recognises handwritten input and allows zooming etc.

The voice control system understands numerous formulations from everyday speech.

My sentiments on the Audi TT Coupé will be in tomorrow’s review.
