Audi TT Coupe 2.0 TDI quattro Goes to Australia

German manufacturer Audi announced the entry on the Australian market of the TT 2.0 TDI quattro, making Audi the first premium brand in Australia to introduce a TDI engine into every major model line. Starting price for the TT is $70,900 (US $56 812).

The car's 2.0l turbocharged engine uses Audi's new common rail injection system and delivers 125 kW at 4,200 rpm and 350 Nm in between 1,750 to 2,500 rpm. The unit provides an average fuel consumption of just 5.3l/100 km, and emissions of 139 grams of CO2/km. The TT sprints from zero to 100 km/h in 7.5 seconds and achieves a top speed of 226 km/h (140 mph).

The TT boasts the Audi magnetic ride, a high-tech shock-absorber system, available as an option. A magneto-rheological fluid circulating in the shock absorbers changes its flow properties within milliseconds when a voltage is applied and this, in turn, alters the damping characteristic. The driver can choose between "Normal" and "Sport" programs by flipping a switch.

On the interior, the driving area boasts clear-cut instruments and a sports steering wheel with the flat-bottomed rim rests. The height-adjustable sport seats are deep-set, providing a sporty seated position and firm lateral support.

As we said, the TT starts at $70,900. Thanks to its fuel consumption rate, it is exempt from the Luxury Car Tax. The price does not include dealer delivery and government statutory charges.
