Audi announced that will expand current TT range, in both body versions, Coupe and Roadster. The new unit is an entry-level gasoline unit, four cylinder, 1.8 liter TFSI. The engine delivers 180 hp and 250 Nm, available between 1250 and 5000 rpm.
The TT Coupe with six-speed manual transmission accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 6.9 seconds, or in 7.0 seconds with the optional six-speed S-tronic, and continues right up to a top speed of 241 km/h (149.8 mph). In the case of the Roadster, the corresponding figures for the standard sprint are 7.2 seconds with manual transmission and 7.3 seconds for the S-tronic version.
The top speed for both combinations is 237 km/h (147.3 mph). The 1.8 TFSI Coupé version covers 100 kilometers (62.1 mi) on an average of only 7.0 to 7.6 liters of fuel (129 – 138 g CO2 per km) (33.6 – 30.9 US mpg; 207.6 – 222.1 g/mi); the TT Roadster 1.8 TFSI achieves this on 7.1 to 7.7 liters (132 – 142 g CO2 per km).
The basic version of the sports car comes equipped with all the strengths of the new model generation – a purist, sporty character, systematic lightweight construction, striking design and dynamic suspension.
