The 2015 Audi TT will be the final iteration of the sports car’s second generation before it gets a full overhaul for the 2016 model year. Before the curtain falls on the current car, Audi will offer a special carbon package for the TT and a Competition package for the high-performing TTS, as well as a few standard equipment upgrades.
For customers looking for a sports car that is as capable as it is stylish, the all-wheel-drive 2015 Audi TT remains a great choice. Now customers can save a bit of cash thanks to the car’s standard heated front seats (previously a $450 standalone option), which are all but essential for cold morning commutes. Also standard for 2015 are a different set of wheels that use a five-arm design, rather than the ten-spoke units that are currently standard for 2014.
A new carbon package will be offered on the 2015 Audi TT, adding a range of appearance and performance upgrades. Black matte 19-inch wheels with summer performance tires, carbon fiber mirror housings with matching front and rear diffusers, and gray-painted brake calipers make for a striking and aggressive appearance. There is some bite behind all of this bark, too—the package adds a sport suspension and has an available upgraded anti-roll bar (also available on the TTS) for better structural rigidity and handling performance to match the TT’s 211 hp, 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder.
For the brawnier, 265-hp 2015 Audi TTS, a newly available Competition package amps up the performance flavor. Special equipment includes Imola Yellow or Nimbus Gray exterior paint, a fixed rear spoiler, silver-finished wheels, and unique yellow accents and stitching for the Baseball optic leather seating surfaces.
Audi tells us that the 2015 Audi TT and TTS coupes start at $41,245 and $49,595, respectively. The TT roadster is priced at $44,425 and $52,595 for the drop-top TTS. It will run you $3100 for the carbon package on the TT coupe, and $3600 on the roadster, while the TTS-only Competition package adds $2500. Prices include destination fees.
The next-gen base TT (arriving sometime in 2015) will get a power boost to 230 hp, while the TTS will ramp up its muscle to a healthy 310 hp. The 2016 Audi TT will also be the first model to get Audi’s new interior infotainment treatment, with all functions consolidated to a multi-function instrument cluster rather than a center-mounted display screen.
