Contrary to the widespread belief that 2020 was to be the final year for the ever-popular sports coupe Audi TT and TTS, the models will make a welcome return in 2021. More than that, the 2021 models are not just a mere continuation of everything from 2020. There are some notable upgrades that will please both fans and new TT initiates alike.
Standard features to the TT and TTS will now include luxurious and high-tech detailing like the S sport seats with Nappa leather upholstery, advanced navigation tech, a Bang & Olufsen audio system and an upgraded version of Audi Connect. If you’re opting for the TTS, we’re pleased to say you’ll get stunning 20” rims as standard. The TT will receive still-impressive 18” alloys as standard, with an option to upgrade to 19” with summer tires.
The exterior will also feature new colours in the selection, namely Chronos Grey and Navarra Blue. Both the TT and TTS will haves these options. So, with a new aesthetic, gorgeous alloy wheels, and fantastic new standard features for the interior, you might expect a 2021 to come at a somewhat raised price tag. In fact, the good news is that neither the TT nor TTS will cost more brand-new than they did in the 2020 model year. This means you’ll still getting more car for your dollar than you were doing in this current model year.
Is it all good news in 2021? Well, if you’re hoping for some new mechanical revelation in the 2021 Audi TT or Audi TTS, then you’ll be disappointed. In terms of what’s under the hood, it’s pretty much the same story as the last production year. The TT and TT Roadster models are to be powered once again by a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine delivering 228hp and 258lb-ft of torque. It’s not to be sniffed at, but while the interior is getting some nice additions, you’ll still be riding on the same hardware, mechanically speaking. The TTS will give you an equal engine in size at 2.0L, but it can manage 60 more horsepower, giving you a total of 288hp, and 280lb-ft of torque.
One more piece of sad news is that it does seem likely that 2021 will be the final model year for this iconic car that has graced the roads since 1998. Mind you, they did think the same thing last year, so until confirmations are made, perhaps we shouldn’t give up any and all hope. It is known, however, that Audi wants to focus more on crossovers and electric vehicles. Time will tell. In the meantime, the 2021 Audi TT and TTS are both still here to enjoy.
