2016 Audi TTS Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview

Audi updated its TT and TTS sports cars for the European market for model-year 2015, and the cars will hit U.S. shores as model-year 2016 coupes and convertibles. The third-generation TT is all angles up front with a large hexagonal grille, sharp hood contours and sleek, slit-like LED headlights.

TT coupes and roadsters will again use a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, but horsepower is up slightly for 2016 to 220 hp from 211 hp; in the sporty TTS model, the 2.0-liter will make 292 hp, up from 265. A six-speed dual-clutch automatic is again the sole transmission; no word on if Europe’s diesel version or manual-transmission model will be available in the U.S. The TT will be available as coupe and roadster; the TTS will be available as a coupe only.

Inside, a customizable digital instrument cluster replaces traditional gauges. Audi calls the setup a "virtual cockpit" and says the 3-D display combines the functions of a central MMI monitor with a conventional instrument cluster in one display. The Audi connect connected car system is also updated this year with picture navigation; read-aloud news headlines, Facebook and Twitter alerts; access to more than 7,000 Web radio stations; and personalized RSS news feeds; it also includes an integrated Wi-Fi hotspot.

One of the best couples on the market. Period.

by Chutrain from Atlanta on July 13, 2018

Cheaper than a Porsche, and arguably just as good or better looking. You won?t find a better looking package inside and out, with the kind of performance a TTS offers at its price point. Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
