For the market launch in October, Audi offered the all-new TT coupe in just three flavors. You could get a diesel 2-liter with the same output as a Golf GTD wearing an ultra badge and… don't bother with that because it only has 184 hp and is relatively expensive. There's also a TTS flagship that makes 310 hp, 10 more than the S3 with the same engine. However, it costs a huge amount of money, over €50,000 if you add one ore two options.
That's why we think the best engine to have on your TT is the standard 2.0 TFSI. It makes 230 horsepower and is shared with the Golf 7 GTI with Performance Pack. But while the front-wheel drive Golf needs 6.5 seconds to reach 100 km/h, the TT can be yours with quattro all-wheel drive and will blitz in 5.3 seconds. In this case, you'll be spending €39,000, just because you also ordered a Haldex coupling and twin-clutch gearbox.

Not surprisingly, a car with a Golf GTI engine sounds a lot like a Golf GTI. The exhaust note is a little better, but the induction noise is the same. Nobody is going to be blown over by the four-pot turbo rumble, but at least it comes out from a standard symmetrical twin exhaust system.

The 2-liter TFSI engine is also pretty economical, requiring 6.4 liters of fuel per 100 km/h (combined). The TT is definitely not a hairdressers' car any more.

This next video was shot by Automann TV using a GoPro camera fixed to the rear bumper. The TT is an S line model in silver with a digital dash. As you can see, it's still fairly new, having traveled only about 300 kilometers (186 miles). Although there's no break in period on Audis, you won't get the full potential of the turbo mill for at least a couple more months.
