Audi TT Coupe 2.0 TDI 170 quattro Black Edit 3dr Review

For Diesel economy mixes with TT design to good effect. Fast, punchy and frugal the TDI TT might sound like an odd fusion recipe, but it works very well in practice.

Against Fuelling from the black pump changes the TT's character from eager sports car to more mature GT. Sensible choice that's not as exciting to drive as its petrol relatives. Choosing the Black edition bumps up the price, too.

It might not be as exciting to drive as petrol alternatives but it's difficult to argue against 53.3mpg. Engine is so torque-rich it's only available with quattro four-wheel drive. This Black Edition version is pricey, though.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

Audi’s TT has been a huge success for the company, and it’s not difficult to see why. In either coupe or roadster guise, the Audi TT offers an inexpensive and appealing way to get into premium-badged sports car ownership.

The wide range of engines consists largely of turbocharged four-cylinder units, although the flagship model is the TT RS, with its 335bhp 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbo engine. There’s even a turbodiesel available for those wanting their TT motoring as economical as possible. Our pick, though, is the fast and flexible 208bhp 2.0-litre petrol.

All but the entry-level petrol models come with Audi’s Quattro four-wheel drive, but we prefer the front-driven versions. Most can be specified with the swift and smooth S tronic semi-automatic transmission. Beautifully finished inside and out, any Audi TT is an enjoyable ownership proposition.
