Audi TT Roadster to be unveiled next spring?

Dutch media is suggesting the all-new Audi TT Roadster will be revealed sometime next spring. Now that Audi has introduced the third generation TT Coupe in Europe, it’s time to start thinking about its open-top sibling, the TT Roadster. According to a new report, the model will be unveiled next spring which probably means that we will see it at the beginning of March during the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland.

The report goes on to say sales of the Audi TT Roadster will commence in the summer and that customers will have the possibility of selecting from three types of headlight lighting technology: xenon, LED and matrix. Wheel size will vary from 18 to 20 inches depending on the trim level selected while protecting the driver and passenger from rain will be an electrically operated retractable soft top.

Engine offerings are likely to mirror those of the Coupe so expect the base Audi TT Roadster to pack a 2.0 TFSI producing 230 PS and a peak torque of 370 Nm. Up next is a more frugal yet less punchy 2.0 TDI generating 184 PS and 380 Nm, followed by the much hotter TT S Roadster with a 2.0 TFSI unleashing 310 PS and 380 Nm.

As expected, the Roadster will command a premium over its Coupe sibling which at home in Germany starts at €35,000 for the base 2.0 TFSI, followed by the 2.0 TDI at €35,900 and the TTS at €49,100.
