For 2018, buyers should look forward to groundbreaking technology, a premium interior, a standard AWD system, excellent handling, and an impressive fuel economy rating. The release date details are still under wraps but we are burning the midnight oil to unveil them soon.
Just as the Audi TT was getting all the headlines back in the ‘90s, so is the expected 2018 year model. This head-turning vehicle comes with some of the most exclusive bells and whistles than any other vehicle in its segment. We can all reminisce how the TT started to lose its mojo in the years that followed. Well, for 2018, the vehicle is expected to feature some of the trending highlights that will certainly make the TT the talk of town.
For this year’s model, traditional buyers should forget about the baseball leather that the previous model came with, however, you should expect a chiseled, mini-R8 design that points to a sharper and precise driving performance. Whilst on the highway, that is what the AWD exactly offers, a sophisticated AWD system and a gripping tenaciously thanks to its summer performance tires underneath.
Admittedly, the vehicle comes with nothing short of TT performance never seen before. Interior wise, the vehicle doesn’t disappoint with its cutting-edge cabin. Sitting at the center of the dashboard is a magnificent 12.3” digital instrument cluster that is referred to as “Audi’s Virtual Cockpit”. The use of technology inside the TT’s Cabin is spendthrift and certainly makes it feel as if it’s ahead of its time. Other features include LED ambient cabin lighting, a rakishly styled center console, and standard LED headlights.
