The all-new Audi TT Roadster will go on sale priced from £31,995 when the order books open in mid-November 2014. The first cars are expected to hit the shores around early spring 2015.
The TT Roadster will be debuted at next week’s Paris Motorshow and follows on from the TT Coupe announced in August. The footprint is 21mm shorter than its predecessor yet has a 37mm longer wheelbase. It is also narrower by some 10mm at 1,832mm wide and is 3mm lower at 1,355mm.
There are two trim levels, ‘Sport’ and ‘S line’ as in keeping with the Coupe – both are equipped with ‘Virtual Cockpit’, Audi’s new dashboard technology comprising 12.3-inch LCD display that replaces the conventional instrumentation – the driver can customise the instruments to show what is important to them. Options include adding Audi’s Multi-Media Interface (standard on the Sport) and integrated satellite navigation.
Audi TT Roadster Engine Line-Up (MY-2015)
At launch there will be a choice of two engines, a petrol 2.0 TFSI 230PS with choice of either front-wheel-drive (six-speed manual) or quattro all-wheel-drive with a six-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission. And there will be a 2.0 TDI 184PS diesel which will only be available with front-wheel-drive. The TDI engine is capable of 65.7 mpg with CO2 emissions of 114 g/km (NEDC figures), which is slightly down on the equivalent Coupe.
A 310PS/380Nm TFSI engine (manual or S tronic auto) will be available in the TTS Roadster that will be available to order early 2015. Initial performance figures indicate a 0-62 mph time of 4.9 seconds with a top speed limited to 155 mph.
