2015 Audi TTS

What's new for 2015? While a completely redesigned version should debut for the next model year, the 2015 Audi TTS Coupe and Convertible return essentially unchanged. One minor difference is that a two-tone interior is no longer offered.

Available in both coupe and convertible body styles, the 2015 Audi TTS takes the stylish but not-so-potent Audi TT base model to the next level with a number of upgrades that boost its fun-to-drive factor. These improvements start with a more potent version of the standard TT's four-cylinder engine that produces an additional 54 horsepower. A quick-shifting six-speed automated manual transmission makes the most of that extra oomph. Larger 19-inch alloy wheels with summer performance tires, beefier brakes and an adaptive suspension complete the package, making the Audi TTS much more satisfying to hustle along a winding stretch of road than the TT. Overall, the 2015 TTS should satisfy buyers desiring a peppy sport coupe or convertible with an upscale vibe.

Exterior Highlights
2+2 coupe or a two-seat convertible, both available in a single trim level

The 2015 Audi TTS is a 2+2 coupe or a two-seat convertible, both of which are offered in a single trim level.

Standard equipment includes 19-inch wheels, performance summer tires, an adaptive two-mode magnetic ride control suspension, adaptive xenon headlights with washer jets and LED running lights, heated mirrors, cruise control, automatic climate control, heated leather seats and eight-way power adjustment (with four-way power lumbar), a tilt-and-telescoping multifunction steering wheel with shift paddles, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth phone connectivity and a 12-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system with a CD player, satellite radio and auxiliary audio jack. The convertible forgoes split-folding rear jump seats for a fully powered soft top.

The optional Navigation system Plus adds rear parking sensors, a navigation system, real-time traffic, an iPod interface, a driver information display and a lap timer. The optional Black Optic package yields different 19-inch wheels, replaces aluminum-look exterior mirrors with carbon fiber and adds other special exterior and interior styling and trim details (including a leather-wrapped roll hoop on the convertible). The unique Baseball Optic Leather package remains available.

Late availability of a coupe-only Competition package will include Baseball Optic leather, extended leather and contrasting stitching, plus lightweight 19-inch wheels, gray-painted brake calipers and a fixed rear wing. Exclusive Nimbus gray or Imola yellow are the paint choices.

Clean, modern design in interior, top-quality materials, straightforward gauges and controls, remarkably quiet, decent trunk space

Like other Audis, the 2015 TTS offers an interior that blends clean, modern design with top-quality materials. One change, however, is that its available two-tone interior option is not being offered this year. In general, gauges and controls are well laid out and straightforward to operate.

Both coupe and convertible models are remarkably quiet inside, the latter surprisingly so thanks to a multilayer soft top with a glass rear window that can be lowered in about 15 seconds with the push of a button.

The coupe is the more practical of the two by virtue of its 13.1 cubic feet of space with the rear seats up and 24.7 cubic feet with them folded down. The convertible's trunk is a good bit smaller at 8.8 cubic feet. However, that's actually a very good number for this class, especially compared with rivals that have retractable hardtops (which take up a substantial portion of the trunk when folded down).

Standard safety features on the 2015 Audi TTS include traction and stability control, antilock disc brakes, hill-hold assist, front knee airbags and front side airbags that protect occupants' heads and abdomens. Models equipped with the optional navigation system also have rear parking sensors. A rearview camera is not available.
