2019 Audi TT RS Is More Or Less Same As Before

When the press material says stuff like, “The new TT RS is in absolute peak form”, you know it’s just a fancy cosmetic update at best

The 2019 Audi TT RS is an example of how most companies deal with the ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ situation while also keeping people interested in their products. Add some nip-and-tucks here, some eye-catching details there and voila! You have a ‘new’ product with a slightly higher price tag. Here’s a look at what the Audi TT RS Coupe and Roadster are all about.

What’s new?

The front bumper

The Audi TT RS’ front bumper is more aggressive now. The side intakes push further out than before, creating that ‘wide’ look. These larger intakes are functional too, feeding new radiators which keep the drivetrain cool.

The rear wing

Looks more purposeful with new end plates. Doesn’t seem to have any effect on aerodynamics, because performance numbers have not changed.

The rear bumper

No longer simple-looking, thanks to the addition of exhaust vents (we do not know if they are functional).

The exhaust

Slightly more inboard than the pre-facelift model, surrounded by a more aggressive looking diffuser.

Interior trim

New accents on the inside of the good looking A/C vents, seats, centre console, floor mats and seatbelts.

What’s not?

Engine and Transmission

The raunchy sounding 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder, turbocharged TFSI motor remains as is. It continues to develop 400PS of maximum power and 480Nm of peak torque from as low as 1950rpm. Paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission and the company’s proprietary quattro AWD system, the Coupe does 0-100kmph in 3.7 seconds, while the Roadster does it in 3.9 seconds.

The Audi TT range is not on sale officially in India, for now. Would you be interested in a 2-door, 2+2 sport coupe/convertible which will most probably cost over Rs 1 Crore?
