Audi has introduced a new entry-level version for the TT priced from €32,100 for the coupe and from €34,500 for the roadster.

The third generation TT has just become more attainable as the starting price in Germany has decreased by €2,900 thanks to a new version which packs a lesser 1.8 TFSI engine outputting 180 PS (132 kW) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque.

When mated to the six-speed manual gearbox, the TT Coupe 1.8 TFSI will need 6.9 seconds until 62 mph (100 km/h) while with the optional six-speed S tronic the sprint takes 7 seconds before topping out at 150 mph (241 km/h). The Audi TT Roadster 1.8 TFSI will do the run in 7.2 seconds (manual) and 7.3 seconds (S tronic), with top speed standing at 147 mph (237 km/h).

In terms of fuel consumption, the coupe needs 7 - 7.6 liters / 100 km (33.6 - 30.9 mpg US or 40 - 37.1 mpg UK), with corresponding CO2 emissions of 129 - 138 g/km. As for the roadster, this one consumes 7.1 - 7.7 liters / 100 km (33.1 – 30.5 mpg US or 39.7 - 36.6 mpg UK) with 132 - 142 g/km of CO2 emissions.

Deliveries of the Audi TT 1.8 TFSI are set to begin in the second half of the year.
