2011 Audi TT Gets Updated Engine and Mild Facelift

The 2011 model year Audi TT has received a facelift and an updated four-cylinder engine. Both the coupe and the roadster versions get 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 differences are subtle: bigger air inlets up front, the LED daytime running lights (already on the TTS model), 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. New available colors include Volcano Red, Scuba Blue, Dakota Gray and Oolong Gray. 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 here and there.

The engine update refers to the 2.0 liter TFSI powerplant, developing 211 horsepower, 11 more than on the 2010 model. It generates 258 lb-ft of torque (350 Nm) between 1,600 and 4,200 rpm, 51 lb-ft more than its predecessor. With this engine, Audi claims the 4-wheel-drive S-tronic spec TT will reach 62 mph in 5,6 seconds. When mated to a manual transmission, the 2.0 liter TFSI consumption is rated at only 35.63 mpg (6,6 liters/100 km), an improvement of 1.1 liters/100 km over the previous model.

Other engines available on the TT are the 1.8 liter TFSI (160 horsepower) and the 2.0 liter TDI (170 horsepower). The 3.2 liter V6 is no longer available, while the TTS and TT RS versions will continue as until now. The updated TT Coupe and the TT Roadster will debut on the German market this summer with minimal changes in terms of price. The 1.8 TFSI will be available from EUR 30,200.
