It seems that everything is ready for the presentation of the restyling version of the Audi TT coupe. The company rolled out a new product at the legendary Nürburgring with virtually no camouflage to Photospies made some good shots before the official presentation.

The updated TT differs slightly from its predecessor. According to the video, you will notice that the novelty will receive new slanting headlamps with LED elements in the spirit of the R8 supercar, a new grille, a bumper and mirrors. There are small changes in the rear: there will be slightly updated bumper and lights.

Like the previous version, the updated TT will be built on the basis of the proven modular platform MQB, which has become the basis for a number of cars Audi, Seat, Volkswagen and Skoda. Its feature is standard engine compartments and pedal modules, aluminum alloys and high-strength steel are used as body materials.

It is expected that the restyling TT will lose the 1.8-liter four-cylinder TFSI in the basic modification, and it will be replaced by a two-liter engine, whose capacity is about 200 horsepower. A more powerful, 227-strong version, should also be preserved. But the new 1.5-liter four-cylinder with a return of 148 horsepower can hardly be expected. Foggy and the fate of the version with a two-liter turbodiesel TDI capacity of 184 forces: sales of Volkswagen Group cars with such engines after all the well-known scandal significantly worsened.

In the interior of the coupe will be an updated instrument panel Audi Virtual Cockpit, but no significant differences from the pre-restayling dashboard is unlikely to be expected.

The presentation of the coupe will take place this year, and judging by the fact that the camouflage in a lighted car a little, wait a novelty for a long time not to.

Sales of TT in Europe last year reached 16 281 copies, compared with 20 922 copies in 2016, which indicates a serious decline. However, the coupe of the previous generation at the end of the life cycle was sold even worse, so the production of TT so far nothing is threatened. But in the US the case for this model goes, to put it mildly, not very: in recent years, local dealers have sold from 1,158 to 3,044 copies a year.
