Audi announces changes for 2011 TT Coupe and Roadster

Audi has announced its popular sports car, the TT, will be receiving some changes for the 2011 model year. Although not ground breaking, Audi has tweaked the TT’s exterior design and improved the two-door’s drivetrains for the 2011 model year.

On the exterior, the 2011 TT sports a new front bumper, complete with new air inlets. The TT’s fog lights are now housed in a chrome surrounds and the car’s front grille has received a minor update. For 2011 the TT’s headlights fall in line with the rest of the Audi lineup, featuring 12 LED daytime running lights.

Out back, the TT receives a slight taillight update, along with a larger diffuser. Overall, the changes see the 2011 TT’s length grow by 0.79 inches.

Audi designers have also made some improvements to the TT’s cockpit for the 2011 model year, including new aluminum-look accents, high-gloss black accents and a brushed gray piece above the car’s glove box. Three new interior colors are also on tap for 2011 — nougat brown, titanium gray and garnet red.

Underhood, the TT receives some major changes for 2011. The TT’s 2.0 TSFI four-cylinder gets a bump in power for the new model year, growing from the current 200 horsepower to 211 horsepower. With that extra power on tap, Audi has decided to completely eliminate the TT’s 3.2L V6 engine option.

Buyers likely won’t miss the old 3.2, though, as the new 2.0 TSFI promises some pretty snappy performance numbers. When equipped with a manual transmission, the new 2.0L can accelerate the TT from 0-62 in 6.1 seconds, with that figure dropping to 5.6 seconds when Audi’s six-speed S tronic gearbox and Quattro all-wheel drive are selected.

In other global markets Audi will continue to offer 1.8 TSFI and 2.0 TDI engine options. The powertrains in the TTS and TT RS carryover unchanged.
