Rumor: An Entry-Level for Audi TT?

 2011 Audi TT

Can you imagine that the Audi TT will be having its entry-level segment or in our term affordable car? No need to imagining as the UK division of Audi has officially announced the new model year for the TT will be offering an affordable version that is powered by 1.8L turbocharged TFSI petrol engine in the form of coupe. Wait… an affordable TT model in coupe version? That is one bold step makes by Audi, don’t you think? So, how affordable will be the TT coupe?

The Audi TT coupe might cost around £24,070 and with that amount of money, you can get power output around 160 horsepower. Not bad, right? Especially if you remember that the engine is already equips with turbocharged. The customers have the privilege to choose between the 6-speed manual transmission as standard option or the double-clutch S-Tronic transmission as the optional feature. There will be two models of the TT coupe namely the Sport and S line.

Taking the manual transmission Audi TT for sprint and you will hit 0 to 62 mph in 7.2 seconds with top speed reaches at 140 mph (225 km/h). As for the S-Tronic model, going 0 to 62 mph can be completed in 7.1 seconds and giving the same top speed. One thing we almost forget to tell you, the manual transmission and S-Tronic model are in FWD a.k.a the front-wheel-drive. You know what those figures remind us? A Volkswagen Golf. Could it be that the affordable TT coupe is the revised edition of VW Golf since the vehicle carries 211 horsepower and can reach the sprint at the exact same time?
