2016 Audi TT Quattro: the Lighter, Durable Audi Series
Meshing revolutionary exterior body designs with recognizable Audi parts from prior TTs, the 2016 model is also packed with innovative technologies. Equipped with cutting-edge Audi parts like a virtual cockpit, 3D graphics for navigation and an instrument cluster, Audi has done a killer job in improving upon the already favorite model. By making their car parts both lighter and more durable, Audi continues to push the envelope of racing performance that everyday drivers can have at their fingertips.
What’s Under the Hood
For those who aren’t aware, the Audi TT is a compact, all-wheel-drive sports car available as a hard top coupe or a two-seater convertible. The base model comes with a turbocharged 2.0 liter engine producing 220 horsepower and 258 lb. – ft. of torque, while the TTS model pushes even more power with 292 horsepower and 280 lb. – ft. of torque.
If that’s not enough horsepower and torque for Audi TT Quattro owners, you can always give your car a boost with various upgrades using high end aftermarket Audi performance parts you can get online. High end aftermarket Audi cold air intake systems will improve airflow to the engine to increase efficiency and power. A larger performance throttle body part would transfer air and fuel at a much faster rate to improve both acceleration and torque by as much as 25 horsepower.
Arguably one of the best enhancements made in the new Audi TT Quattro is the virtual cockpit installation. Equipped with a 12.3 inch TFT screen, drivers won’t have an issue seeing various navigation instruments and other vehicle prompts. The high-resolution screen has two modes including classic and infotainment view. The classic is a more traditional display whereas the infotainment view shrinks the gauges placing them in the lower corners providing a much larger space for the features/functions you need most (such as the navigational maps). Drivers can clearly see the modes that include navigation, media, phone, and trip information and can easily interact with the Virtual Cockpit with either a controller in the center console or buttons on the steering wheel.
For drivers interested in a bit more technology, there are optional technology parts packages that can enhance features even more including MMI navigation plus, aka the Audi Connect, which is an infotainment system that provides detailed information including driving patterns, weather, and directions. Technology upgrades can even include features like Google Voice and Google Earth.
Safety Parts Features
Standard safety parts in Audi’s 2016 TTS include airbags all around the vehicle interior, child seat anchors, daytime lights, dusk sensing headlamps, remote anti-theft alarm systems and 4-wheel ABS. Some advanced safety parts features include emergency braking assistance, tire pressure monitoring, post-collision safety systems and much more. Drivers looking for even more advanced safety parts should consider the upgraded technology package that would include features like parking assist and blind spot assistance to help keep you safer on the road.
It goes without saying that Audi’s 2016 TT Quattro is a big step for the model to keep up with today’s advancements both in parts mechanics and technology. Holding onto its reputation as one of the top luxury cars boasting tremendous power and handling, the TT and TTS are sure to impress sports car aficionados. With innovative technologies and revolutionary car parts advancements, it’s safe to say that Audi has outdone itself once again.
