Audi began updating their model lineup with the A5 family and will continue to do so with every other model they are offering. Even the R8 sports car will be updated, as will the TT right before the new generation is revealed at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.
With a new generation Audi TT on the horizon, don’t expect any drastic changes to take place. Just as with the A5, changes made to the TT will be limited to minor exterior and interior updates. There will be the same re-sculptured lights on the front and rear of the car with "wave-like" LED headlamps, a modified front grille, a redesigned front bumper with larger air intakes, a new rear bumper, a new electromechanical steering, new damper settings, and a revised rear suspension.
No changes will be made under the hood, so we’ll see the same range of three four-cylinder engines with turbocharging and direct fuel injection. Power outputs range from 160 HP - 211 HP. All the engines are mated to either a six-speed manual transmission or a S tronic dual clutch transmission as an option. Of course, anyone looking to get a more powerful Audi TT should just wait around for the TT-RS Plus set to be released in 2013.
