2011 Audi TT revealed, sports refreshed looks and upgraded engine


Audi didn’t waste any time, and just before the AMI Leipzig Motor Show opened its doors, it has already formally unveiled the 2011 TT model, with a mid-cycle facelift for both for the coupe and the roadster versions.

So, what’s so new about the 2011 Audi TT? Well, as you can see above, the car has received a very slight refresh to its looks, with bigger air intakes, LED daytime running lights and a gloss black grille finish in the front. For the back, a new rear diffuser has been added, while the taillights are just slightly restyled. New colors are available with the 2011MY, Scuba Blue, Oolong Gray, Volcano Red and Dakota Gray. The interior received new color options, as well as special leather, capable of resisting solar heat.

But while its looks are all fine and dandy, most of you are probably interested in the new performance boost the 2011 TT received. The petite sportscar now packs an upgraded 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine, which outputs 211 HP and 258 lb-ft of torque, improving on the 2010 model. Don’t go thinking the increase in power means a loss in the fuel average, as Audi boasts 36 MPG on the combined European cycle.

The new engine will be able to propel the quattro-equipped TT from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 5.6 seconds. The six-speed S Tronic dual-clutch gearbox will be mated to the 2.0-liter TFSI engine, and will be only option for the North American market.
