In efforts to offer the best of driving experience under all weather conditions, premium automaker Audi has unveiled the all-wheel drive TT TDI Quattro for the UK market. Potential customers can opt for either Coupe or Roadster version and bookings for the same will begin in January 2017 while deliveries will happen in the following months. The upcoming vehicles will will continue to be powered by the popular 2.0 TDI engine which generates 181bhp of power, but this will also get the Quattro drive system.

The front-wheel-driven TT 2.0 TDI ultra models will continue to be on offer alongside the new Quattro-equipped duo. However, unlike the older ones which exclusively get six-speed manual transmission, the new 2.0 TDI quattro variants are offered with a six-speed S-tronic twin-clutch transmission. The Quattro drive uses an electro-hydraulic multi-plate clutch to distribute the torque to both axles. In many everyday driving situations, the engine’s power will be directed predominantly to the front wheels. When there is a decrease in the traction, the clutch continuously redirects the torque to the rear within a few milliseconds. 

The Quattro system also works smartly with the wheel-selective torque control, an intelligent software feature of the Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC). This helps in making handling more fluid and stable due to targeted, accurately metered brake applications to the wheels on the inside of the bend. In case of low-friction surfaces, the permanent all-wheel drive system ensures safe and controlled drift scenarios.

The TT Coupe 2.0 TDI Quattro S-tronic is capable of accelerating from 0 to 100kmph in 6.7 seconds and goes on to clock up a top speed of 233kmph. Whereas, the Roadster is capable of sprinting from 0 – 100kmph in 7.0 seconds and is capable of achieving a top speed of 229kmph. The clutch management is integrated into the Audi drive select dynamic handling system which is a standard feature of all UK specification TT models. This allows the driver to select Comfort, Auto, Dynamic, Efficiency and Individual modes which modify the character of their TT. In addition to controlling the all-wheel-drive system, Audi drive select also influences throttle response, steering assistance and S-tronic transmission shift points. It also integrates several optional modules such as the Audi magnetic ride adaptive damper control and the deluxe automatic air conditioning.
