When the German automaker unveiled the Audi TTS in 2008 they wanted to give their sport coupe a more powerful look along with an aggressive design resulting in a TT that would drive like none other. After only two years of being in production, the Audi TTS is entering the 2010 model year better then ever with a 265 HP version of the 2.0 TFSI four cylinder along with a sharper tuned suspension. The TTS will be sold in both coupe and roadster bodies but will only be offered with two trim packages aimed at an upscale market: Premium and Prestige.
The TTS distinguishes itself from lesser models with a distinct front and rear fascia as well as LED driving lights and a set of slick 18 inch wheels. Meanwhile the suspension is upgraded to Audi’s magnetic ride control, a technologically advanced unit that constantly monitors what the vehicle is doing and then adapts the firmness of the suspension to suit anywhere from "Normal" to "Sport" driving needs. The TTS comes standard with the high output version of the direct injected 2.0 Liter making a maximum output of 265 HP and 258 lb-ft of torque.
The additional power and customized Quattro all wheel drive system helps the TTS accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.9 seconds, a full second faster than the standard TT. Thanks to Audi’s advanced TFSI technology both the TTS Coupe and Roadster get as much as 29 MPG on the highway. That makes for one very sporty yet economical TT with the coupe starting at $45,900.
