The Audi TT 1.8 TFSI: Athlete in a compact format

From July, Audi will extend the engine range for the new TT generation to include an entry-level 1.8 TFSI engine version. This version of the Audi TT Coupe will be available with a starting price of 45,615 while the TT Roadster will be priced from 47,815.

The turbo charged 1.8 TFSI engine has a displacement of 1,798cc and achieves its peak torque of 250Nm across a rev range of 1,250 to 5,000rpm. An additional manifold injection system supplements the FSI direct injection to help cut emissions while the Audi valvelift system varies the stroke of the exhaust valves, improving the engine's response. A compact rotary valve module for thermal management and the exhaust manifold integrated into the cylinder head both play a major part in the engine's efficiency.

The TT Coupe with six-speed manual transmission can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.9 seconds, or 7.0 seconds with the optional six-speed S-Tronic, and has a top speed of 241 km/h. The 1.8 TFSI TT Coupe also has the ability to cover 100 kilometres on an average of only 7.0 to 7.6 litres of fuel. The TT Roadster can reach 100km/h in 7.2 seconds with manual transmission and 7.3 seconds with S-Tronic and has a top speed of 237km/h. The entry-level 1.8 TFSI engine in the TT Roadster can also achieve coverage of 100 kilometres on an average of 7.1 to 7.7 litres of fuel.

Audi has also supplied the new generation of the TT with a choice of three two-litre engines. The TT 2.0 TDI ultra with 184hp can reach distances of up to 100 kilometres on just 4.2 litres of fuel and represents new best-in-segment fuel economy with CO2 emissions of 100 grams per kilometre. The 2.0 TFSI offers two options. In the TT, the supercharged petrol engine develops 230hp and 370Nm of torque while the power output of the TTS is 310hp and 380Nm which sees the Coupe being able to reach 100km/h in 4.6 seconds.

The entry-level version of the TT comes equipped with all the strengths of the new model – a purist, sporty character, systematic lightweight construction, striking design and dynamic suspension. Sport seats with integral head rest are fitted as standard alongside the Audi virtual cockpit. The interior of the new TT generation has created a major buzz since its world debut at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas at the start of 2014. Optional high-end features include Audi connect for a high-speed Internet connection, Audi drive select driving dynamics system, and assistance systems such as park assist with a reversing camera. These technologies have seen the TT collect various awards – including “Design Innovation of the Year and “connected car of the year".
