The Audi TTS is the brand's hopped-up version of its TT, which rides on the same platform as the new Volkswagen Golf and the Audi A3.
Inside, everything's focused on the driver. There's no central screen for the cabin -- instead, it's all tucked into the instrument binnacle, which Audi calls Virtual Cockpit. The HVAC controls are hidden inside the vents themselves.
