The new Audi TT Coupe is coming, find out what's new with our easy to read review. Audi unveiled the new TT coupe to the world at the Geneva motor show earlier
The all-new Audi TT was shown off to world earlier this month at the Geneva motor show. Prices and an official launch date have yet to be confirm, but we expect to start seeing them reach the showrooms towards the end of this year. This will be the third generation of the popular sports car.

Yet again it looks like Audi have done a stand up job in improving the look of an already beautiful machine. But how has the new Audi TT changed from the previous model:
New body design – sharper lines with a broader, flatter front grille.
Cockpit on a 12.3 inch screen (will talk more about this later, you’ll love it!)
Improved diesel and petrol engines
More power to the rear wheels via Audi drive select on the Quattro model
Xenon headlights now as standard
It’s been on a diet, losing around 50kg from the previous model
The new Audi TT has a virtual cockpit 12.3 inch screen housed behind the steering wheel (where the speedo etc are normally kept), this allows the driver to switch between two display modes. You have the ‘classic’ mode which shows the speedometer and rev counter. Then there is the ‘infotainment’ mode which will have a smaller speedometer and rev counter. This make space for the sat nav map and a few other functions.
We love the look of this virtual cockpit and fully expect it to be rolled out across the rest of the Audi range over the next few years. It has yet to be confirmed if this is a standard feature or if you will need to pay extra for it.

Another nice little touch Audi have introduced to the version TT is the air conditioning controls are positioned directly on the air vents. Not exactly cutting edge, but it does look pretty cool!
The new Audi TT will be powered by a number of new engines, all have start-stop technology as standard:
2.0 TFSI 230PS 6-Speed Manual Front Wheel Drive
2.0 TFSI 230PS 6-Speed S-Tronic Front Wheel Drive
2.0 TFSI 230PS 6-Speed S-Tronic Quattro
2.0 TDI ULTRA 184PS 6-Speed Manual Front Wheel Drive
How Much Does It Cost To Lease The New Audi TT Coupe?
So far Audi haven't released prices for the new TT, we expect these to be announced closer to the release date - which again hasn't been announced.
The Audi TT historically have had some fantastic lease / contract hire deals due to the strong residual value the car has demanded. Personally I don't see any reason why the new Audi TT won't be able to command equally strong residual values and therefore the leasing and contract hire deals should be good.
