AUDI AUSTRALIA has announced the addition of two new engines to its TT line-up, both of which offer improved fuel economy for the two-seat coupe.

First up is the 1.8 TFSI turbocharged petrol inline four, which produces 118kW and 250Nm. It's not the most powerful motor in the TT range (in fact, it's the least powerful), but it uses just 6.7 litres of petrol on the combined cycle.

Available with a six-speed manual and front-wheel-drive only, the Audi TT 1.8 TFSI is the new entry-level model for the line-up, taking over from the 2.0 TFSI.

The thrifty engine is still able to propel the TT at a decent speed, however, with the 0-100km/h sprint being done away with in 7.2 seconds and top speed pegged at 226km/h. With a fuel consumption figure of less that 7.0 l/100km, the 1.8 TFSI is also exempt from the luxury car tax and wears a pricetag of $64,900 (before on-roads).

But while the 1.8 TFSI is economical, the new 2.0 TDI is even more frugal. With 125kW and 350Nm on tap from its turbocharged 2.0 litre diesel, the Audi TT 2.0 TDI uses a scant 5.3 l/100km on a combined urban/highway cycle and emits just 139g/km of CO2, yet can still sprint to 100km/h from rest in just 7.5 seconds.

Like the 1.8 TFSI, a six-speed manual only transmission on offer in the 2.0 TDI. However, power is taken to all four wheels by Audi's quattro AWD system, enhancing traction and improving handling.

The 2.0 TDI also earns itself a green exemption from the luxury car tax thanks to its low thirst for fuel, and is priced at $70,990 before on-road costs.

Another new addition ot the TT range is the Audi TT 2.0 TFSI quattro S tronic, the AWD version of the existing FWD 2.0 TFSI S tronic. Thanks to the improved grip of the quattro system the 2.0 TFSI is now nimbler through the corners, and can accelerate to from zero to 100km/h in 6.2 seconds on its way to a top speed of 238km/h.

The 2.0 TFSI quattro S tronic retails for $76,900 and, like the 1.8 TFSI and 2.0 TFSI, is now available nationwide from Audi.
