Details of the 2016 Audi TT Roadster and TTS Roadster have been revealed. As with previous generations, the open-top model turns the 2+2 coupe into a two-seat roadster. The 2016 Audi TT Roadster and TTS Roadster will officially debut at the 2014 Paris auto show.

Like the 2016 Audi TT and TTS, the new roadster shares the coupe’s standard LED daytime running lights, taillights, available Matrix LED headlights, and strong horizontal lines with the wide and flat single-frame grille. Around back, the taillights mimic the shape of the headlights, while the LED third brake light strip connects the top of the taillights.

Despite losing the coupe’s sloping roofline, the Audi TT Roadster achieves a drag coefficient of just 0.30 with the soft-top closed. The coupe’s definitive crease between the body and greenhouse allowed the TT to lose its top without losing its muscular rear fenders. An active rear spoiler rises at 75 mph.

Color choices for the power soft top include black, titanium gray, and jive. To ensure lighter weight than the last generation’s top, the fabric top’s supporting hardware consists of magnesium, aluminum, steel, and plastic. Audi claims the top opens or closes in just 10 seconds and can be operated at speeds up to 31 mph. Cargo area is 9.9 cubic-feet with the top up or down. Interior noise level is claimed to be 6 dB lower than in the previous model.

Like the TT and TTS coupe, the open-top versions will be powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4. In the TT, the engine makes 227 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, while the TTS makes 306 hp and 280 lb-ft. European versions will be available with a 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine making 181 hp and 280 lb-ft. All engines feature a stop-start system. Audi claims the TTS will reach 62 mph in just 4.9 seconds, while top speed is governed at 155 mph. Transmission choices consist of a six-speed manual or six-speed dual-clutch DSG unit. Audi’s Quattro permanent all-wheel-drive system is available on the TT and standard on the TTS. TT models ride on 17-inch wheels, while TTS models get 18-inch wheels with 20-inch wheels available.

Inside, the TT and TTS roadsters are available with the same high-quality materials as the coupe including available S sport seats, leather, cloth, and Alcantara. Trim material includes aluminum and matching paint. The new TT and TTS roadsters also get Audi’s new MMI navigation plus and MMI control as well as the virtual cockpit that positions all vehicle and infotainment information directly in front of the driver on a 12.3-inch screen. Other available tech equipment includes radar-based side assist, active lane assist, park assist, traffic sign recognition, and attention assist.

The 2016 Audi TT and TTS Roadster models take the stage next month at the Paris Motor Show.
