2016 Audi TTS Owners Manual – Audi’s TT has never ever been a car for anyone. However, it is difficult to determine it is a car for anybody. It’s in an existential situation, a small great-type coupe adrift in a beach of Sports utility vehicles. Now, with the 2016 TTS coupe, it provides 292 horse power in which to explore the boundaries of becoming and nothingness.
Much of what transforms the TT into a TTS is the identical things which twist an A3 into an S3, or Volkswagen’s GTI into a Golf R. That includes the higher-undertaking version of the group’s turbocharged and immediate-injected 2.0-liter steel-prohibit four-cylinder. Operating its own tube brain, pistons, turbocharger, higher-strain fuel-injection system, along with other tweaks that independent it from much more-plebeian types, this 4 is beastly.
But although the TTS engine’s 292 horsepower is 72 more than the 220 in the standard TT, its 280 pound-feet of peak torque is only a tame 22 lb-ft. stronger than the base TT’s. And this torque optimum will come in the future-1900 rpm instead of 1600-and runs out much longer, to 5300 rpm alternatively of 4400. It requires merciless throttle utilization to obtain the highest thrust with this engine. Feather-feet it and it is just a base Golf leased at the Antwerp airport.

A dual-clutch system, half a dozen-speed intelligent transmission (S tronic in Audi-articulate) jogging much closer ratios than in the typical TT is obligatory. The electronic changing is flawless, and it’s smooth when shifted with the paddles, but it is no guidebook gearbox. It’s inhumane that a far more immediate connection between the vehicle driver and his / her gears isn’t offered in this car.
Arm the kickoff the handle, toss a rock at the accelerator, and cling on as the Quattro four-wheel travel sinks the optionally available 255/30R-20 P Zeros’ claws into the tarmac. The TTS wallops 60 miles per hour in 4.2 moments, or 1.0 secondly a lot better than the simple TT and .2 ticks easier than the 80-lb-weightier Audi S3 sedan. This is a several-cylinder creation car that operates the quarter-mile in 12.8 mere seconds at 108 mph, 0.7 2nd and 4 miles per hour more rapidly than the old TTS.
