20th May, 2012

The Audi TT has been reinvigorated with the addition of new variants featuring the company’s sporty S tronic transmission.

Previously manual-only, both the 1.8 TFSI and 2.0 TDI engines now feature the brand’s sporty S tronic transmission for lightning-fast gearshifts. Typically for Audi, fuel efficiency is good with consumption figures from 5.5 litres per 100km (2.0 TDI).

Available in both Coupe and Roadster form, the new S tronic transmission makes efficient use of the 1.8 TFSI engine to deliver sporty performance, yet frugal fuel economy. The 1.8 TFSI produces 118 kW from 4,500-6,200 rpm and musters maximum torque of 250 Nm within a wide range of 1,500-4,500 rpm. Combined now with the 7-speed S tronic transmission, the TT Coupe 1.8 TFSI reaches 100 km/h in 7.2 seconds, yet delivers responsible fuel consumption figures of 6.4 litres per 100 km (on the combined cycle - not on acceleration).

The 2.0 TDI diesel engine is available in Coupe body style only, and delivers 125 kW at 4,200 rpm, however the real beauty of this engine is the generous wave of torque it provides: 350 Nm from 1,750-2,500 rpm. The newly-available 6-speed S tronic transmission makes best use of this torque, reaching 100 km/h in 7.5 seconds. With Audi’s TDI direct-injection diesel technology, fuel economy is assured at 5.5 litres per 100 km (combined cycle). This is an impressive figure for a sports car.

Both the 1.8 TFSI and 2.0 TDI enjoy a generous level of standard specification, including 17-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth interface, cruise control, front sports seats upholstered in Valetta leather and multifunction sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles, so that enthusiasts can change gears manually during spirited driving.

Audi ultra–lightweight aluminium technology

The body of the TT Coupé is based on hybrid Audi Aluminium Space Frame (ASF) technology. Lightweight aluminium is used from the front of the car back to the B-pillar, with steel panels used at the rear. The mix makes it possible to finely balance the axle loads and keep the overall weight low. The highly rigid and safe body shell weighs just 206 kilogrammes. The TT 1.8 Coupé TFSI S tronic weighs 1,280 kg.

The lightweight principles inherent in the TT Coupe are also integral to the sporty performance of the TT Roadster. The cloth roof contributes to a low centre of gravity, fits harmoniously into the design line and takes up little space when open. A manual top is standard. The automatic top includes an additional acoustic mat and an electrohydraulic drive. It opens in 12 seconds, even while driving at a speed of up to 50 km/h.
