2016 Audi TT Coupe & TT Roadster heading to LA show

The 2016 Audi TT Coupe and TT Roadster will premiere in US specification later this month during the Los Angeles Auto Show. Images with the American versions of both models are not available at this point but chances are the cars will look virtually the same as their European siblings, but with orange turn signals which are mandatory in United States. Audi did say the cars will be available with an S tronic gearbox, quattro all-wheel drive system and an Audi drive select system.

Moving inside the cabin, both the 2016 Audi TT Coupe and TT Roadster will benefit from a digital instrument cluster featuring a 12.3-inch display. The cars will also come with LED lighting and an optional Bang & Olufsen sound system featuring 12 speakers and a 14-channel amplifier.

The 2016 Audi TT Coupe and Roadster will be motivated by a 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter TFSI turbocharged gasoline engine outputting 220 bhp (164 kW) and a peak torque of 258 lb-ft (349 Nm). The TTS variant will be available exclusively as a coupe with an uprated version of the same engine generating 292 bhp (218 kW) and 280 lb-ft (379 Nm).

The TT lineup in US specification is slated to go on sale in the second quarter of next year, with pricing to be announced closer to the commercial launch.
