The latest addition to the 2017 Audi TT line up is the all-wheel-drive Quattro version which in the UK will come in combination with the 2.0 TDI model. The weird thing is though, they are launching Audi TT Quattro in Britain in spring… right after the cold season and just as the snow and ice begin to dissipate.
In any case, the new Audi TT Quattro boasts a 184 horsepower and 380 Nm of torque 2.0 liter diesel engine mated exclusively to a six-speed S tronic twin-clutch transmission. These will send the power to an electro-hydraulic multi-plate clutch which will then distribute it between front and rear axle depending on the traction situation. So most of the time the Quattro is actually front-wheel-drive, with the power going to rear wheels only when the front ones start to lose grip.
In terms of performance, the 2017 Audi TT Quattro 2.0 TDI Coupe sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 6.7 seconds and tops out at 145 mph. These figures for the Roadster are 7.0 seconds and 142 mph. Fuel economy-wise, the Coupe does 54.3mpg with 137 CO2s while the roadster manages 52.3mpg and 142 g/km. The Quattro is also pretty well-equipped as far as technology features are concerned with intelligent Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC), Audi drive select dynamic handling system with Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, Efficiency and Individual modes, Audi magnetic ride adaptive damper control and automatic air conditioning.
