2016 Audi TT S Coupe and Roadster launched in Australia

Both the 2016 Audi TT S Coupe and Roadster are now available across Australia, starting at $99,000 for the coupe and $103,000 if you prefer the open-top version. The bad news is you can get the cars only with the six-speed S tronic transmission while in international markets clients have the possibility of ordering the car with a six-speed manual transmission.

Power is provided by the familiar 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine teamed up to a quattro permanent all-wheel drive system with a Haldex system which can sent up to 100% of the torque to the rear axle. The AU-spec TT S models have 210 kW of power which represents an increase of 10 kW compared to the previous model. It’s the same story with the torque figure which has been bumped by 30 Nm to 380 Nm. Compared to the Euro version, the Australian model has the same amount of torque but it’s down on power by a significant 18 kW.

The 2016 Audi TT S Coupe will perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 4.7 seconds which makes it 0.1s slower than its European counterpart. As for the Roadster, it needs 5 seconds for the same task and the 0.3s difference between the two has to do with the Roadster being 115 kg heavier. Both of them have an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h.
