Audi TT TDI diesel gains quattro all-wheel-drive

Diesel TT gets extra grip with optional quattro all-wheel-drive, plus S-tronic dual clutch transmission as standard.

Audi TT TDI quattro

Audi is expanding the amount of choice on offer in its TT range, introducing new TDI diesel models available with quattro all-wheel-drive. Order books for the new quattro cars are now open in the UK.

With first deliveries touted for spring, the new TDI quattro cars slot in above the existing front-wheel-drive diesel models. Both Coupe and convertible Roadster styles are available, and customers have a choice of three equipment levels to choose from.

Starting from £34,230 for the 2.0-litre TDI quattro Coupe in Sport trim, all cars in the new TDI quattro line-up get the 181bhp 2.0-litre diesel powerunit, though fitted with a six-speed S-tronic twin-clutch transmission as standard. Opting for the all-wheel-drive system and the new gearbox adds a noticeable premium, given the standard front-wheel-drive 2.0-litre TDI TT Sport starts from £30,490.

S-Line trim cars and Black Edition models are also available, while the Roadster versions kick off from £35,845.

Adding the all-wheel-drive system and the S-tronic gearbox furthers the performance of the TDI models and the 0-62mph sprint times of both the Coupe and Roadster have dipped. The Coupe manages the dash in 6.7 seconds, shaving four-tenths of a second off the front-wheel-drive car’s time and clocking in a top speed of 145mph. As for the roadster, 0-62mph takes seven seconds flat, with top speed recorded as 142mph.

With the new drivetrain in place efficiency does take a hit. Audi claims the Coupe delivers 52.3mpg and 142g/km CO2, compared to the front-wheel-drive version’s 60.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 124g/km. It’s a similar story with the roadster, dipping to 50.4mpg from 58.9mpg and rising to 147g/km from 129g/km CO2.
