Audi_TT_Malaysia_ 001

While you’ve already seen it in the showroom, we recently got our hands on one and now we’re bringing you a different angle of the new 2016 Audi TT – on the road. In person, the coupe looks absolutely stunning when it’s cruising along the highway. The car measures a little longer in length and a tad narrower than its predecessor – perhaps that’s why it looks that much sharper.

Sharper? Yes, the 2016 Audi TT is in fact sharper, as the company slowly moves away from the rounded design that we’re more used to seeing in previous generations. The iconic coupe, now in its third generation, is still a sight to behold not just on the inside but on the outside as well. And that’s good news indeed.

The design of this coupe is one of the key selling points of this two-door. The single-frame grille is much broader now, wheel arches a little wider while the aluminium fuel cap with bolts is retained. Overall, it looks more aggressive, so this new design 2016 Audi TT should keep the hairdresser jokes to a minimum.

The new TT gets a whole lot of tech added into it. Inside, there’s the wide 12.3-inch TFT LCD screen called the Audi virtual cockpit that replaces both the standard centre display and instrument cluster.

Powering the TT is a 2.0 litre turbocharged TFSI four-cylinder engine that churns out 230 hp and 370 Nm of torque, coupled to Audi’s S tronic dual-clutch transmission. That said, the sad part is that the Malaysian variant doesn’t come with Audi’s signature quattro all-wheel drive system. This one’s front-wheel drive only.

Prices for the 2016 Audi TT start from RM284,900, on-the-road with GST, exclusive of insurance. It also comes with a four-year/120,000 km (whichever comes first) manufacturer’s warranty.
