The 2016 Audi TT is a sleek third-generation coupe offering refined technological advancements and world-class features that have made its debut one of the most exciting of the year. If you’ve been looking forward to this fun, sporty drive, here are some things you can expect from this year’s model.

1. A Virtual Cockpit

The 2016 Audi TT boasts an all-digital instrument cluster. While this isn’t unheard of in modern vehicles of this caliber, Audi has utilized a Visual Computing Module. This VCM is powered by an Nvidia quad-core Tegra 3 processor, so drivers can look forward to improved response times, making for a fun, exciting drive. The virtual cockpit even offers unexpected innovations like Google Earth 3D images, which displays the road ahead on the dash with surprising clarity. And while we’re on the subject of the Audi’s virtual cockpit, let’s discuss another one of the TT’s amazing innovations:4

2. Audi MMI: Car Multimedia & Navigation System

The all-digital instrument cluster includes everything from a classic speedometer and tachometer to colorful, real-time weather display for more convenient navigation. This technology is Audi’s MMI: Car Multimedia and Navigation operating system, an intuitive system that acts as the car’s nerve center. It combines a classic dashboard look with the all-digital display to enhance the virtual cockpit. Like most aspects of the Audi TT, you can even control the MMI from the steering wheel. Manage everything from ride dynamics to entertainment without worrying about a touchpad or center console while driving.

3. Enhanced Performance

The 2016 Audi TT handles curvy roads as sharp as a razor thanks to its innovative steering angle sensor, shifting wheel load, and the industry’s best all-wheel drive system. The car also has a low center of gravity, which keeps it firmly planted on the road during the sharpest turns. Its overall design offers effortless movement that encourages you to push the TT just to see what it can do.

4. LED Elements

While the third-generation design pays tribute to the TT’s impressive past, the 2016 model makes no excuses for technology-forward innovations. This coupe offers full LED headlamps and accent lighting for that truly modern sports car appeal. The LED headlights and taillights provide superior visibility, durability, and longevity. What’s more, vertical daytime running lights offer a signature look that complements the car’s hexagonal single-frame grille. And if you’re worried about safety, LED headlights have been proven safer because they promote alertness better than traditional bulbs.

In addition, the 2016 TT model’s use of LED lighting extends to the front door mounted speakers, creating a modern interior ambiance car enthusiasts crave in 2016. Although the TT didn’t change in size from its predecessor, these high-tech improvements have made it a highly desirable coupe in its class.

If you’re a modern sports car enthusiast who appreciates a radically reimagined cabin, stylish interior and exterior, and a fun driving experience all wrapped up in one sporty package, the 2016 Audi TT may just be the quintessential coupe for you.
