Audi TT facelifts continue testing in snow

Audi TT facelifts continue testing in snow

Audi is preparing a mid-life update for the TT coupe and the roadster. Both the cars were spotted testing lately undergoing winter testing in northern Europe. Both the base models and the hardcore TT RS were spotted lately, and this time around the test mules of the TT S variant was spotted covered in snow.

Part of the updates are the new bumpers both fore and aft. The rest of the body is sans any camouflage which means that this is just a cosmetic update rather than a full-blown make-over. The new gen TT is still a few years away and hence this subtle update will keep the two-door sports car fresh for the next couple of years.

The roadster also hides minimum parts under the cladding with no distinct changes to report about. The souped up S treatment lends an aggressive and sharp rear wing to the Roadster. The head and tail lights remain unchanged, however, the current updated LED signature lighting was updated back in 2014. If Audi plans to keep this update on the sports car for another two years we expect to see some updates on the headlight and taillight design as well. The characteristic grille, however, appears to be meshed on the test mule compared to the horizontal slat ones on the current car. 

Powertrains will remain unchanged as the update is not skin deep. However, there are rumours that there will be a slight bump in power figures to keep things interesting. The 2.0-litre turbo-petrol produces 220bhp in the base TT while the S variant pumps out 292bhp. The range-topping RS’ 2.5-litre unit breathes out 400bhp of power in the current configuration. Audi hasn’t revealed any details about the increase in power as yet. Expect the new TT to be revealed later this year as a 2019 year model.
