Audi has revealed details and images for the updated-for-2011 Audi TT today. Both the Coupe and Roadster body styles have been given a modest makeover, and the line-up gains a new model powered by Audi’s updated 2,0-litre TFSI four-cylinder petrol engine.
With the use of Audi’s Valvelift system, the updated 2.0 litre TFSI engine produces 155 kW (up 8 kW on the previous model) and 350 N.m of torque (up 70 N.m). It is paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or, moving up the specs list, Audi’s six-speed S tronic dual-clutch transmission mated to the quattro all-wheel-drive system.
The 0 – 100km/h sprint is covered in 6.1 seconds in the manual-equipped model, and a spritely 5.6 seconds with the S tronic and quattro setup. Despite the boost in output, fuel consumption for the 2,0-litre TFSI engine is listed at 6.6 l/100km – down from 7.7 l/100km.
On the styling front, the updated TT gets simple tweaks to the front bumper with larger intakes and a single-frame gloss-black grille. As is fast being an Audi trademark, a row of LED daytime-running-lights now features along the bottom edge of the headlights. At the rear, subtly updated tail lights, larger exhaust tips and an oh-so-slightly larger diffuser round out the updates. Thanks to the tweaks at both ends, the TT is now 20 mm longer, measuring 4 187 mm in length.
The more powerful 2011 Audi TTS variant gets a more obvious update up front, featuring a new grille and front bumper with chrome intake frames. The range-topping TT RS remains unchanged, maintaining Audi’s familiar RS styling.
Updates in the cabin are similarly modest, with a new satin-aluminum look to the steering wheel, centre console and door trim. The glove box gets a brushed aluminium insert, and new interior colour combinations are available for the TT and TTS models.
South African pricing is still to be announced.
