Audi AG has announced the European pricing for its new TT S-line trim. When we first reported on the TT S-line, all we were able to do was bring you the photos Audi released and make some observations based on what they showed. Today, we finally have the rest of the story. It turns out there are actually a pair of S-line packages – S-line sports and S-line exterior. The car depicted in the photos is equipped with both.
The sports package incorporates a lowered sports suspension, wheel upgrade (18″ or 19″ in a choice of patterns), and an interior revamp that adds cloth/leather or optional full-leather seats embossed with the S-line logo, silver contrast stitching (the interior is black), an S-line steering wheel, aluminum trim (including some nice branded doorsill inserts), and a sport shifter. In addition to all that, Misano Red or Avus Silver paint can be selected for the bodywork.
The bodywork, by they way, benefits from the S-line exterior package, which fits new bumpers fore and aft that incorporate smart-looking diffuser inserts. Audi’s press release says that those inserts are finished in “platinum grey,” but the photos indicate that they’re simply unpainted carbon-fiber. The side grills in the front bumper also receive real vents as opposed to the unventilated honeycomb-look covers present on the regular TT.
The TT S-line sports package starts at Ð‚ 1,800 and the S-line exterior package starts at Ð‚ 1,300.

PRESS RELEASE: S line for even more sports appeal
Two attractive S line packages now add an even more dynamic touch to the new Audi TT CoupÃ©, the brand’s sports car icon. Both feature an array of visual and functional optional extras that offer additional sporty highlights in performance and design.
For even more agile handling, the S line sports package combines sports suspension (with a 10-millimetre lower ride height) with 18-inch aluminium wheels of 5-spoke design, or as an option, 19-inch aluminium wheels of 20-spoke design or 7 twin-spoke design. Inside the car, sports seats ensure optimum lateral support. These are upholstered in a combination of cloth and leather or optionally Fine Nappa leather, each embossed with the S line logo. Silver stitching lends an ultra-stylish note to the otherwise black interior. A shortened gear lever reduces shift travel on the manual version; the gear knob is trimmed in perforated leather. Also included in the sports package: the S line leather sports steering wheel, extended aluminium look for the interior and the S line logo on the door sill trims and front wings. The exclusive exterior colours Misano Red and Avus Silver can be ordered with the sports package at the same price as metallic / pearl effect paintwork.
The characteristic features of the S line exterior package are the distinctive bumpers at the front and rear and side ventilation grilles at the front. The diffuser insert at the rear and the centre front spoiler lip are in colour-contrasting platinum grey. S line logos are also included in the exterior package.
The S line sports package and S line exterior package are available for the 2.0 TFSI and the 3.2 V6 quattro and can also be combined with each other. The prices: from Ð‚ 1,800 (sports package) and Ð‚ 1,300 (exterior package).[Audi AG]
