The Audi stand at the Geneva Motor Show this year was the focus of a lot of attention with the reveal of the all-new TT, ushering in the third generation of the stylish sports coupe and roadster. But before the second-gen model gets the old heave-ho, Audi is giving it a few enhancements to send it out on a high note.

Stylistically, the 2015 Audi TT and TTS, both coupe and convertible, get a new single-frame grille and LED daytime running lights to make it better match its stablemates. The interior gets some upgraded equipment as well, but enthusiasts will be more intrigued by the optional Competition Package available on the TTS.

Like the package Audi rolled out to celebrate the 500,000th TT made, the new TTS Competition Package gets a fixed rear spoiler, five-spoke alloys, baseball-stitched leather seats with contrasting stitching and a choice of yellow or gray paints for the exterior.

Otherwise the MkII models carry over for their final year mechanically unchanged, with a 2.0-liter turbo four producing 211 horsepower in the TT and 265 in the TTS, with 0-60 times ranging from 5.6 seconds for the TT Roadster to 4.9 seconds for the TTS coupe. Details in the press release below.

Audi introduces the 2015 Audi TT and TTS

• New optional TTS Competition package available for 2015
• Optional S line® plus carbon package for the 2015 Audi TT
• New standard features include front heated seats, 5-arm Dynamic design wheels

The Audi TT and TTS Coupe and Roadster models – known for their distinctive profile and iconic design along with the spirited performance that the 2.0 TFSI® motor delivers – continue for the 2015 Model Year. The 2015 TT and TTS models continue with their iconic shapes, enhanced by the Singleframe® grille and distinctive LED daytime running light technology. Its interior is artfully appointed with fine materials and innovative technologies.

Performance
Known for its incredible performance and efficiency, the 2015 Audi TT Coupe and Roadster are powered by the award-winning 2.0-liter TFSI® turbocharged and direct-injected, four cylinder engine. This motor also combines Audi valvelift system and variable valve timing. The TT Coupe and Roadster produce 211 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and propel from 0-60 MPH in 5.3 seconds and 5.6 seconds respectively.

The high-performance Audi TTS Coupe and Roadster – also powered by the 2.0-liter TFSI® turbocharged and direct-injected, four cylinder engine – achieves 265 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The TTS Coupe accelerates from 0-60 MPH in 4.9 seconds, while the Roadster completes the sprint in 5.1 seconds.

All TT and TTS models are fitted with a six-speed S tronic® dual-clutch automatic transmission – a revolutionary direct shift gearbox that blends the user-friendliness of an automatic with the performance of a manual – and both models come standard with quattro® all-wheel drive for superior traction and handling.

For the 2015 Model Year, the Audi TTS has a new optional Competition Package, which includes: new exterior paint in Imola Yellow or Nimbus Gray, Fixed rear spoiler, 5-arm-Rotor wheels with silver finish, Baseball Optic leather seats w/ Imola yellow accents and contrast stitching.

Audi magnetic ride is standard on the TTS Coupe and TTS Roadster; instead of conventional damper oil, the shocks are filled with a special fluid, where viscosity can be controlled by an electromagnetic field. Audi magnetic ride suspension harnesses the fluid's electromagnetic properties to help deliver the appropriate damping forces. Audi magnetic ride operates in normal or sport mode for a more agile and sporty driving experience.

The TT and TTS are built with ASF® construction, a high-strength aluminum frame structure into which the panels are integrated so that they also perform a load-bearing function. The aluminum body is characterized by exceptional stiffness and substantially lower weight for better performance, efficiency and handling.

Exterior
The Audi TT and TTS classic Coupes and open-air Roadsters are known for their iconic, bold design and unmistakable shape. With eye-catching touches – like Xenon plus headlights and LED daytime running lights, and an adaptive rear spoiler in the back that automatically deploys and retracts based on vehicle speed, and can also be controlled on command – the TT and TTS make a striking visual statement with the top up or down.

For the 2015 Model Year, the TT Coupe and Roadster will offer the optional S line® plus carbon package and will have standard 5-arm-Dynamic design wheels. An Audi exclusive roll-bar covered in black leather will be optional for both models.

TTS models also include Audi adaptive headlights, which help improve visibility by lighting corners and bending more effectively.

Interior
Inside, the Audi TT and TTS – with sporty flat-bottom multi-function steering wheel, 12-way power seats, driver-oriented cockpit, and modern amenities – exude character, sophistication and impeccable craftsmanship. For the 2015 Model Year, the Audi TT now has standard front heated seats.

Technology and driver assistance
The TT and TTS offer an available BOSE® sound system. This twelve-speaker powerhouse features crystal clear sound, along with AudioPilot® technology that actively compensates for ambient noise. An available Navigation package includes the Audi parking system with rear acoustic sensors, as well as the Audi Music Interface (AMI). The available DVD-based Audi Navigation plus system features a full-color 6.5-inch LCD screen and MMI® control logic for AM/FM and SiriusXM® Radio, real-time traffic, AMI in the glove box and two SD® card slots for MP3 music.

      When the cars were affordable, they had a distinctive body and good performance. They started down the slippery road of trying to make the TT a super car and there is no market. I still say the original body is better looking than anything since. I fully suspect the TT will evolve in the future to a different car, but if not they will have no market. Even Porsche realizes the similarity between their entry level car and the 911 is hurting their more expensive products. They have finally agreed to build a boxer four cylinder for the boxster and it's hardtop brother to eliminate this problem of perception. I suggests to Audi they return to a Miata beater and get away from the $60,000 wannabe car their building now.

      So, the model that was introduced at Geneva 2014, is going to be a 2016 model? But the 2015, which is out in 2014, is getting some enhancements before it goes away? I don't get it.

      They need to bring the manual back and make new models available quicker. It is unforgivable to wait a year and a half for brand new models to North American market.

      Just did some research from articles posted on this site about the car shown at Geneva, and the current generation car. The posts about the Geneva car mentions that it is a new model for 2015, which also talks about the new grill, lights and interior enhancements. Yet, the car you're speaking of in this post mentions the same grill, lights and interior changes, but without showing the car from Geneva, this is the current generation car. So, to resolve my confusion, is it the current 2014 model that is getting the Competition Package option as a send-off? Or is there not a designated 2014 model, just options you can choose to enhance the current generation on its way out?

      The TT is a big seller in Europe ( and particularly Britain) and has been a very successful car for Audi. You might argue the fine points of why the TT did not sell well here, but that's probably down to marketing/positioning by Audi US and not to the good automotive taste (or lack of) of the US market.
