Entry-level Audi TT breaks cover


Audi's TT is a car coveted by many people. Its looks, performance and associated image send many drivers wobbly at the knees.

Sadly, the entry fee for a base model TT was rather high. Well, until now. There's a new model in town - the 1.8 TFSI Coupé, and it'll set you back £24,070. Which is still rather a lot of money.

Still, if your wallet can take it, you can hop into a shiny new TT with all the looks of the rest of the range, though with less go...

Your money will buy you 158bhp, 184lb/ft of torque, a 0-62mph time of 7.2 seconds (with the manual 'box. S-Tronic models do it in 7.1) and a top speed of 140mph. It's hardly a slouch, though a VW Scirocco with 211bhp dips under the net at £24,705. And that's before you start haggling.

Two trim options are available, Sport and S-Line. Sport trimmed cars understeer in with 17-inch alloys, climate control, leather/Alcantara upholstery and a Concert audio system.

Want something a touch more jazzy? S-Line cars come with 18-inch alloys, lowered sports suspension, a short shift 'box for manual cars, S-Line details and ultra-bright Xenon lights.

No matter which car you choose, Audi says you'll manage 44.1mpg and CO2 emissions of 147g/km.

Those with more cash to splash, can now also have the slick S-Tronic 'box with the 1.8 TFSI Roadster and the 2.0 TDi roadster and coupé.
