2017 Audi TT RS Release Date, Review and Specs

2017 Audi TT RS Release Date, Price, Specs, Interior – The new 2016 Audi TT RS will be provided in both a coupe and convertible configurations. The release date of this marvelous vehicle has been set anywhere before the fall of this year. It will take the stylish but not-so-potent standard model to the next level with a significant number of improvements that will boost its fun-to-drive factor.

These upgrades start with a more compelling version of the base TT’s 4-cylinder engine that is capable of generating an additional 54 hp. Also, there will be a quick-shifting 6-speed automated manual transmission system that will take it to another level of performance.

Other upgrades include 19” alloy wheels with summer performance tires, adaptive suspension and beefier brakes complete the performance package, therefore making the TT RS a more satisfying vehicle to hustle along a winding stretch of road in comparison to the TT. Sadly, the improvements made on the new TT RS come at a cost. However, in case your budget is tight, you should consider any of these alternatives. Chief among them is the refined Chevy Corvette Stingray, Cayman Coupe and Porsche Boxster.

Exterior Colors & Interior Changes – 2017 Audi TT RS

For starters, the Audi TT RS 2016 will certainly be unveiled as either a 2+2 coupe or a two-seat convertible, both of which will be offered as a sole trim.

Some of the standard equipment to look forward include adaptive xenon headlights with washer jets, an adaptive two-mode magnetic ride control suspension, and heated mirrors, cruise control, nineteen-inch wheels, performance summer tires, heated leather seats, automatic climate control,LED running lights, and eight-way power adjustment. Others include a tilt-and-telescoping multifunction steering wheel with shift paddles, Bluetooth phone connectivity and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The convertible, according to well-placed sources, should forego the split-folding aft jump seats to get a fully powered soft folding top.

Optionally available is the Navigation system Plus, which should add, a navigation system, a driver information display, an iPod interface, a lap timer and rear parking sensors. The other selective package includes the Black Optic package which replaces aluminum-look exterior mirrors with carbon fibre, and adds other specially designed interior and exterior styling and trim qualities.

Also, we should expect late availability of a coupe-only Competition package, which should avail Baseball Optic leather, lighter nineteen-inch wheels, contrasting stitching, fixed aft wing and gray brake calipers. Joining the color palette is exclusive Nimbus Gray and Imola Yellow.

Engine Specs – 2017 Audi TT RS

The brand new Audi TT 2016 will be offered with two engines. The base model will come with a turbocharged 2L 4-cylinder engine rated at juat 230 hp. This power will be transmitted to the front wheels. And according to Audi, this combination will be suited to provide a 0-62 mph sprint in only six seconds.

On the other hand, the 2016 Audi TT RS launch edition roadster should make use of an uprated 310 hp version of the same engine paired to a Quattro AWD system, this will be enough to fire the vehicle from 0-62 mph in just 4.7 seconds.

European models will come fitted with a standard 6-speed manual transmission system, with an optional 6-speed auto transmission system with an S –Tronic system. We are hopeful that unlike the current model, the 2017 Audi TT RS will be offered in the U.S with the manual transmission.

Some of the safety features to expect should include antilock disc brakes, hill-hold assist, traction and stability and front knee/side airbags. Models fitted with the selective navigation system should also have rear parking sensors. Evidently lacking is the rearview camera.

Price & U.S Release Date – 2016 Audi TT RS

Both the 2017 Audi TT and TT RS are set to arrive at U.S dealerships sometime before this fall. The least priced variant should go for sale with a price tag of around $40,000 for the TT and around $52,000 for the TT RS. This, therefore means, the revamped coupe (and eventual roadster) are put in the company’s segment of modern classics like the Porsche Boxster, BMW Z4 and Porsche Cayman.

In overall, the new and revamped 2017 TT will be more sophisticated, made of cutting-edge interior, more powerful engine, improved performance; reduced weight and certainly, better fuel efficiency. However, we found the FWD system to under-deliver in comparison to its RWD rivals.

The above assumptions have been based on informed reports. In light of this, the TT RS will undeniably be in a class of its own.

For a majority of purchasers, the most weighty and pertinent vicissitudes for the 2016 Chevy Impala are the elimination of the ephemeral “trifling hybrid” eAssist version and addition of a wireless connection.

2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport – Release Date, News and Rumors

2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport Release Date, MPG, Engine, Price – With an infrequent exception, today’s small crossovers are designed more for everyday practicality and comfort than for traversing backwoods trails and fording rivers. And with the announcement of an upcoming 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport, buyers should expect an exception. This legendary piece of art’s release date has been set for the first quarter of next year.

2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport
2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport

Just like Land Rovers, the new Discovery has successfully melded its current design with some classic capability. In fact, the new vehicle has managed to retain some measure of the Land Rover brand’s iconic maneuverability which has more to do with remaining true to the giant automobile’s history than it does with consumer demand.

The vehicle will step in as a replacement for the unlamented LR2 as well as a complement to the Evoque, with which it shares many mechanical tidbits. The Discovery rides on a 3.25” longer wheelbase, 10” longer and essentially has a taller roof line, resulting in a spacious interior better suited for people who like to carry some cargo every now and then. The vehicle, by conventional standards, is one of the most spacious and functional compact crossovers one can find. Also, there is an optional 3rd row of seat, although it is only suited for small children.

However, the 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport has potential negatives. They include; a turbocharged 4-cylinder engine and a fairly slow acceleration. Despite the setbacks, the SUV has an extra degree of go-anywhere gusto and this freshest Land Rover is definitely a worthy look. Other better performance vehicles and latent competitors include the Audi Q5, Acura RDX, BMW X3 and Volvo XC60.
