Audi has celebrated the TT's 20th birthday with a quick trip to the plastic surgeon.

The German brand has revealed details of a mid-life facelift for the third-generation of its iconic coupe and roadster, with changes focused on improving its style and performance.

All models receive redesigned front and rear bumpers, with higher-grade variants bringing more visual differences.

Entry-level versions feature wider air intakes on either side of a slightly reprofiled single-frame grille at the front and stronger horizontal lines to emphasise its width at the rear.

The TTS and those fitted with the optional S-Line body kit have a silver-painted longer front splitter that extends across the width of the bumper into air fences within the side intakes. The treatment is mirrored at the back with a new shroud across the diffuser and exahust tip surrounds.

Audi hasn't revealed technical details of the TTs updated mechanical package, but claims the 2.0-litre turbo charged four cylinder produces more power than the current models which starts at 169kW/370Nm in the standard model and rises to 210kW/380Nm in the higher-grade TTS.

Both variants will now feature a particulate filter to meet stricter emission regulations in Europe and will be offered with either a six-speed manual transmission or an upgraded dual-clutch automatic that moves from six to seven speeds.

The upgraded Audi TT is expected to arrive in Australian showrooms early in 2019 with local specifications and prices expected to be confirmed closer to its launch.
