Revised 2018 Audi TT Coupe Proves That Rally Lights Go With Everything 7

Following our previous scoop on the facelifted TT RS, our spies caught a regular TT prototype being tested in cold-weather conditions, wearing the traditional pair of projector lights.

The Audi TT will receive a mid-life update sometime next year, focusing more on adding the latest technologies the firm has to offer.

The limited amount of camouflage on the prototype also means that you shouldn’t expect any major visual changes; just the usual refresh of the LED lights, along with some small tweaks on bumpers, side sills and a new pattern for the mesh grille design.

The cabin will be updated of course with Audi’s latest tech features, including the newest version of the Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster, as well as new trim and color options. Audi’s semi-autonomous systems will also debut in the TT as well.

As for the engines, there’s really not much too talk about; Audi will keep the current range on offer, including the regular 2.0-liter TFSI and TDI units while there are some reports talking about the introduction of the VW Group’s 1.5-liter TSI engine as a new base model. The range-topping TT RS will stick with the 2.5-liter turbo five-cylinder unit.

The revised version of the popular Audi TT is expected to hit the European market in 2018.

Scoop: Facelifted Audi TT-RS Will Not Mess With A Winning Formula 5

Audi is working on the mid-life update of the TT, with the first spy shots showing a TT-RS roadster being tested on public roads.

You wouldn’t expect Audi to mess too much with the successful design of the current TT and you would be right: the small patches of camo tape around the car lead us to believe that Audi will most certainly keep the visual changes to a minimum.

Expect to see new lighting signatures on lights all around in order to bring the TT in line with Audi’s latest products, as well as subtle tweaks and changes on body parts like the front grille, side sills and bumpers.

Inside, the updated TT will also receive some updates, with Audi to use the latest version of their Virtual Cockpit along with the latest infotainment features, as well as new trim options and colors.

The engine range will remain more or less the same, with the range-topping RS version keeping the characteristic 2.5-liter five-pot unit which in the current models produces 395hp (400PS) and 354lb-ft (480Nm) of peak torque.

The facelifted range of the Audi TT is expected to debut in 2018, so stay tuned for more info in the coming months.

All-New 2019 Audi A6 Spotted With Production Lights – No, Not Those… 1
Dec
Posted by Michael Karkafiris in audi, Audi A6, Audi Scoops, Scoops on 12 1st, 2017


The winter test season is here and our spies caught the 2019 Audi A6 wearing its final production lights.

However, don’t get your hopes up because these don’t include the set of projectors mounted on the roof. Compared to the already introduced A7, the new Audi A6’s LED headlights appear to adopt a diffent, more basic style while the rear ones look predictably similar.

Also, and despite the camouflage tape hiding it, the rear end is expected to feature an LED stripe between the taillights, similar to those found in the A8 and of course the A7.

The combination of the slimmer headlights with the wider grille makes the new A6 look wider and lower than the current generation, spicing up a little bit the evolved but familiar lines.

Audi’s latest tech features will be present, including the 48-volt electrical architecture, safety systems and semi-autonomous capability. By the time it arrives at dealerships, the new Audi A6 is expected to offer more advanced tech than its main rivals, which includes the Mercedes E-Class and the BMW 5-Series.

Traditionally Audi will offer the new A6 in both sedan and Avant bodystyles, while the popular Allroad version is expected to join the range a few months after its market launch. Expect to see the new Audi A6 making its first appearance in 2018.

New Audi Q8 Sounds Awfully Quiet On The Nurburgring 3

Audi is getting ready to put an end to the BMW X6 and Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe segment domination by working on their very own “SAV” or coupe crossover, dubbed the Q8.

Caught on the Nurburgring, this prototype continues to keep its camo vinyl wraps on almost its entire body, unlike the one scooped last month that was more eager to reveal some of its lines, most of which come from the Q8 Concept shown in Detroit earlier this year.

But while its exterior is inspired by the show car, inside, the new Audi Q8 resembles to the latest A8 flagship saloon, as it benefits from the same pair of touchscreen displays. The rest of the cabin is adorned with aluminum glossy black trims, and we also expect plenty of soft touch materials, meant to elevate its premium stance.

Audi’s MLB platform is the foundation stone for the new sports crossover, which uses aluminum and carbon fiber, and allows it to get a variety of powertrains. The rumor-mill has it adopting the tri-turbo 4.0-liter V8 diesel engine from the SQ7, a 48-volt PHEV making almost 470hp in the SQ8, and a twin-turbo V8 gasoline-powered unit that’s expected to be used in the RS version.

The automaker continues to keep the official reveal date close to its chest, but it’s expected to come out sometime next year, as a 2019MY.
