Audi has introduced the Coupe and Roadster versions of the new TT 2.0 TDI quattro which will become available for UK ordering early in 2017. The new quattro-equipped duo will be sold alongside the existing front-wheel-driven TT 2.0 TDI ultra models. The new 2.0 TDI quattro variants use a six-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission.
The performance of the Audi TT stems from its combination of quattro drive and the flow of power from the four-cylinder diesel engine. Its 184PS output is combined with 380 Nm of torque available between 1,750 and 3,250 rpm. The common rail system injects the fuel through eight-hole nozzles at up to 2,000 bar.
The TT Coupé 2.0 TDI quattro S tronic accelerates from 0 to 62mph in 6.7 seconds and goes on to clock up a top speed of 145mph (233 kph). The Roadster accomplishes the standard sprint in 7.0 seconds and continues to a top speed of 142mph (228 kph). In the Coupé, the 2.0 TDI quattro S tronic is claimed to achieve fuel consumption of 54.3mpg according to the NEDC measuring method, which equates to 137 grams of CO2 per kilometre. For the TT Roadster, the figures are 52.3mpg and 142 g CO2 per kilometre.
Taking into account the newcomers the Audi TT portfolio now comprises seven engine/transmission variants, of which five are petrol versions. The many advantages of quattro drive can already be enjoyed in TT 2.0 TFSI 252PS and 310PS TTS models.
