Audi has since long been busy giving minor updates to almost its entire lineup for quite some time now. The brand has now given the TT RS Coupe and Roadster a facelift for model year 2020.
The revised RS features revised styling at the front with larger lateral air inlets. Other design updates include LED headlights as standard, and matrix units with matrix OLED reversing lights that put on a small show whenever the ignition is being switched on, as an option. The car also gets revised rear styling with a new fixed rear wing with side winglets.
The new TT RS is available in eight colors including the model-specific Kyalami Green, the new Pulse Orange and Turbo Blue. Customers can customize their cars with the Matte Aluminum or Gloss Black styling packages that highlight the front blade and rear wing. The Gloss Black package also adds black Audi rings and TT RS logos, while the Roadster gets a black fabric roof.
The interior of the car can be trimmed in red or blue throughout the cabin as part of the new RS Design Package, while the Extended RS Design Package offers contrasting design elements on the seats and central console. The MMI Navigation Plus is optional and includes voice control, free text search and a Wi-Fi Hotspot. Connecting a smartphone to the infotainment system requires using the USB port. and the 680-watt Bang & Olufsen premium sound system is simply outstanding.
However, the facelifted TT RS doesn’t get powertrain updates. It is still powered by a 2.5-litre, 5-cylinder engine mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. This setup develops an output of 400 PS of peak power and 480 Nm of torque. The car is also equipped with the Quattro all-wheel drive that and allows it to hit 100 km/hr from rest in just 3.7 seconds. Top speed is limited to 250 km/hr but can be lifted to 280 km/hr with an optional package.
Audi will start bookings for the facelifted TT RS models in Europe on February 7. Pricing for the Coupe starts at €67,700 in Germany while the Roadster starts from €70,500. Deliveries are slated to begin by spring of 2019.
