The new 2017 Audi TTS is constructed with performance at its core. Some of the reasons that we find appealing about the Audi TTS 2017 include a standard all-wheel drive system, a unique exterior design, and a high-tech interior design. The two-door performance coupe also offers an impeccable cabin design, and an impressive list of technology. The Audi TTS 2017 release date should be expected sometime in the first half of 2017.
Just like the higher performance Audi S3 version is based on the 2017 Audi A3, the Audi TTS also derives its inspiration from the regular Audi TT. The Audi TT is superfluous in its own right: 0-60 mph takes 5.5 seconds and comes from 60 mph back to naught in just 103 feet, and its interior comes chock full of new technologies.
The higher-performance version – 2017 Audi TTS – distinguishes itself from the regular TT in terms of better handling, and more power. Just like the regular Audi TT, the Audi TTS comes with a 292-horsepower turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine. It also comes with performance features such as four-selectable ride settings, adaptive magnetic dampers, and a 10 mm reduced ride height. Others include a power-adjustable side bolsters, standard sport seats, silver mirror covers, and quad exhaust tips.
The 2017 Audi TTS interior comes with a contemporary style and technology galore. The material quality is exemplary and comes with plenty of upscale technologies. It comes with features such as LED ambient lighting, an optional Bang & Olufsen audio system, a rotary bezel, and a 12.3” Virtual Cockpit.
Given its unique talents, the 2017 Audi TTS seems to lack any direct rival apart from its sibling – the 2017 Audi TT. Within this price range, however, there’re a thriving community of high-performance vehicles ready to offer the Audi TTS a run for its money. Such vehicles include the refined and all-American Chevrolet Corvette. Others include the Porsche Cayman S, and the BMW M235i.
