Audi’s third-generation TT sports car will arrive for the 2015 modle year with a starting price of $41,245 including delivery.
Like Volkswagnen Group’s other new compacts, the TT is based on VW’s MQB platform. The base car is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine making 230 hp, or a 19 pony inrease over the outgoing model. For $49,595, customers can pick up the most potent TT-S, which offers 310 hp and 273 lb0-ft of torque to hit 60 mph in under six seconds.
Pricing for convertible models is also available with the TT Roadser coming in at $44,425 while the TTS Roadster will cost $52,595, or roughly $3,000 more than their coupe siblings.
Revised styling for the new generation follows closely with the previous cars but carries sharper angles. The biggest stylistic changes take place inside the car, where Audi did away with the traditional center console in favor of a 12.3-inch digital display in the gauge cluster.
A U.S. arrival date hasn’t been announced yet, but dealers are expected to start recieving the cars sometime next year.
