The Audi TT Coupe and Roadster
Dynamic design, enthralling performance and exemplary
efficiency – the Audi TT is a sports car icon. The British magazine What Car?
recently named it Coupé of the Year for the fifth time in a row.
Body and interior
The interior of the TT offers dynamic elegance and superior workmanship. The leather seat covers are specially treated to reduce solar heating by as much as 20 degrees Celsius (68 Fahrenheit). The 2 + 2 coupé is a sports car with a high degree of everyday practicality. The split backs of the rear seats fold down, expanding the trunk space beneath the long hatch from 290 to 700 liters (10.24 – 24.72 cu ft).
The 2.0 TFSI generates 155 kW (211 hp). The Audi valvelift system AVS adjusts the lift of its exhaust valves in two stages, which increases power, torque and efficiency.
The Audi TT 2.0 TDI consumes on average just 5.3 liters of fuel per 100 km (44.38 US mpg). Its 125 kW (170 hp) of power and a brawny 350 Nm (258.15 lb-ft) of torque provide for dynamic performance.
A six-speed manual transmission transfers power to the wheels regardless of the engine. Audi also offers the S tronic dual-clutch transmission for the 2.0 TFSI, which switches between its six gears extremely quickly. The quattro permanent all-wheel drive system is available as an option for the 2.0 TFSI with the S tronic; it comes standard with the TDI. The heart of the system is an electronically controlled hydraulic multi-plate clutch.
Available as an option with all variants of the TT is the variable Audi magnetic ride shock absorber system, another high-tech feature. A computer switches the adaptive suspension between two settings as desired by the driver. The optional sport button can be used to adjust the characteristic of the gas pedal (with manual transmissions), the servo boost for the steering and the engine sound in two stages.
Equipment and trim
The Audi TT Roadster
The TT Roadster is a pure two-seater. Two massive rollover bars protect the driver and passenger in the event of a rollover. Compared to the Coupé, its body includes reinforcements in the area of the A-pillars, the sills and the bulkhead between the interior and the luggage compartment, yet it still weighs just 251 kilograms (553.36 lb). The luggage compartment holds 250 liters (8.83 cu ft) with the top up or down.
The engines and transmissions offered for the Audi TT Roadster are identical to those offered for the Coupé.
