Audi has introduced a new, more-efficient version of the TT to its sports car line-up – the TT TDI.

The new car utilises a 2.0-litre diesel engine, meaning customers can enjoy TT’s involving drive without the expensive fuel bills often associated with a larger petrol unit.

The latest diesel engine produces 180bhp and can be specified on both roadster and coupe models. The TT TDI also gains the German manufacturer’s Quattro all-wheel-drive system.

Power is sent to the wheel through a six-speed S-tronic twin-clutch automatic transmission.

Although the dash from 0-60mph is dealt with in a brisk 6.5 seconds, the TT TDI can still return a combined fuel economy figure of 54.3mpg with CO2 emissions of 137g/km in coupe form. The roadster manages 52.3mpg and 142g/km.

Customers will receive a dynamic handling system as standard, which allows motorists to choose between Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, Efficiency and Individual driving modes. This alters certain aspects of the all-wheel-drive system, as well as the throttle response and steering assistance.

The new model sits alongside the TT 2.0 TFSI and TTS models in the sports car line-up.

Order books for the new TT TDI open in early 2017, with first deliveries expected to arrive in spring. Prices for the new car are yet to be announced.
