Launched just mere days ago, we now present to you live photographs of the Audi TTS quattro. Priced from RM389,900, the hotter TTS quattro costs a rather significant RM105k more than the entry-level Audi TT 2.0 TFSI which retails for RM284,900 instead. So then, what exactly does one get with spending the extra moolah over the standard car? Firstly, you get a smattering of TTS badges as well as a TTS-specific body kit.

Elsewhere on the exterior, the Audi TTS quattro is equipped with sportier rear diffuser within which four exhaust outlets reside. Also, one gets 19-inch forged alloy wheels 245/35 Bridgestone Potenza S001 tyres. The Audi TTS quattro also gets LED headlamps and taillights as standard with the option to spec Matrix LED units for an additional RM5,000.

As expected, the Audi TTS quattro receives a significant power bump over the standard TT 2.0 TFSI model. Under the bonnet, the car is motivated by a turbocharged 2.0 litre TFSI four-cylinder petrol engine with 286 hp and 380 Nm of torque between 1,800 to 5,200 rpm – the slight drop in power over the Euro-spec models can be attributed to the changes made to adapt said mill to our fuel quality and climate.

A six-speed S tronic wet, dual-clutch transmission is responsible for sending said power to all four corners of the car via the marque’s trademark quattro all-wheel drive system. Performance figures include a 0-100 km/h time of 4.7 seconds. Not exactly the slowest of cars, then.

Inside, the Audi TTS quattro retains the familiar Audi Virtual Cockpit instrument cluster which is made up of a 12.3-inch display screen and air-con vents with integrated controls and display. The TTS quattro also adds on electrically-adjustable S sport front seats, a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel with shift paddles and a honeycomb-like laser texture on the dashboard.

Aside from that, the TTS quattro also receives 680 watt 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system as standard. Safety and added driver conveniences include a Comfort Key, Electronic Stabilisation Control (ESC) which includes Traction Control (ASR), Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Electronic Differential Lock (EDL), Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), and six airbags.

As mentioned, the Audi TTS quattro does ask for quite a lot more over the regular TT 2.0 TFSI. Put simply, if one was to option out a regular TT with more or less the same amount of kit that comes standard on the TTS quattro (B&O sound system, S Line pack, LED lights, 19-inch wheels and so on), the fully-loaded regular TT would cost in the region of RM325k – which equates to about RM65k for the quattro and performance gains.
