2019 Audi TT – As you can probably say, Audi does not rock the boat here. There are no new headlights like the A3 facelift. At the front, the only new piece of hardware is the bumper which, in the case of both models, has been designed to look sportier. The style is similar to what we saw on the A7 S line, with additional details concentrated in the “takes”.
2019 Audi TT Changes
The spoiler at the bottom has also been lengthened, making the TTS and TT S Line wider and sportier. But only an unconditional fan of Audi will be able to notice. The lighthouses also have thin camouflage strips at the bottom, which suggests they will also receive minor updates. The rear bumper is also camouflaged, but we do not see anything different there. Perhaps there is a progressive wing on the trunk, which would be very nice to have at this price.
By putting the current version next to the upcoming facelift, you will probably have trouble figuring out who is who. It should be the same story inside the cabin where the only settings we expect are new upholstery options and other minor revisions that will probably not get you into the nearest Audi showroom for order the TT RS.
2019 Audi TT Engine
The two-door range of Audi MQB is currently starting with a 1.8-liter TFSI engine, with a 2.0-liter TFSI above. It also has a TDI option of 2.0 liters. Sales of the diesel model nearly halved last year, accounting for only 16% of total TT sales in 2017 of 7767 units. The Volkswagen group has recently introduced a 1.5-liter Evo engine, but the 148 hp of this unit means that it must be placed under the current entry point of the TT, making it an unlikely addition. There is a chance that the diesel engine could be abandoned because of its slowing demand, but more likely it will be withheld in the facelift due to stronger sales in other markets. As such, no major changes are expected for the powertrain alignment of the 2019 model. However, if current trends continue, the successor to the TT could eventually abandon the diesel option.
For the facelift, Audi is likely to focus on improving the efficiency and production of current powertrains. Even the lineup TT RS, which uses a turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine, is only likely to undergo minor modifications. However, this should include a boost to the 395bhp of the current car by potentially pushing it on the 400bhp brand for the first time.
Audi unveiled the TT RS at the 2016 Beijing Auto Show, so maybe we’ll see this imperceptible forehead lift at the same time this month. If this is not the case, the Paris Motor Show, which will begin in early October, will probably be the venue of the first. There is also the possibility that Audi might not come out with the big guns on the first day because it could first refresh the smaller models until the TT S before introducing the range RS later.
