AUDI will launch a seriously revised 2.0-litre TFSI turbo engine in the TT for next year.

Power is up from 200bhp to 211 but efficiency has also been improved so that there is also a big improvement to economy.

The manual coupe covers the zero to 60 miles an hour sprint in a shade over six seconds and will power on to a top speed of no less than 152 miles an hour.

Yet economy average is up from 36.7mpg to 42.8, and emissions are down from 183g/km to an excellent 154.

Owners will also now be able to order the ‘sport’ button which was previously only available on the range-topping RS, on any model in the range.

This allows the driver to improve engine response, tauten up the steering and would you believe, change the engine note!

The 160PS 1.8-litre TFSI petrol engine continues in both roadster and coupe, as does the 170PS 2.0-litre TDI turbo diesel.

Interior

There will be new colours available for both inside and outside of the cabin, and improvements to the trim.

TT seats have always been marvellous and I have no doubt that the cabin will be superbly driver-orientated as before.
