text size: A- A+
Audi revealed that since its market launch, the diesel engine’s share in the TT range has grown fast, now reaching 11 percent.
Aside from the styling upgrades, there are no mechanical changes to the 2.0-liter turbo diesel unit. Its output continues to be 170 horsepower with a peak torque of 258.15 lb-ft (350 Nm), available between 1,750 and 2,500 rpm. Permanent all-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission are standard on both models.
According to Audi, the TT Coupe 2.0 TDI completes the 0 to 62 mph sprint (0-100 km/h) in 7.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 140mph (226 km/h). Average fuel consumption is 44.38 mpg (5.3 liters per 100 km), while CO2 emissions are 139 g/km (223.70 g/mile). Audi hasn’t made any official statements about a possible entry of the diesel-powered TTs in the United States.
The 2011 model year Audi TT has received a mild facelift, with both the coupe and the roadster versions getting refreshed exteriors and interiors, along with the new 2.0 liter TFSI engine coming from the European version of the VW Golf GTI Mark VI.
The exterior updates are subtle: bigger air inlets up front, LED daytime running lights, as well as a shinier black grille finish. In the back there's a new flat rear diffuser, new exhaust outlets and mildly redesigned tail-lamps. On the inside, the 2011 TT's will get new cabin colors, leather specially treated to resist solar rays and heat and a few new aluminium bits of trim.
