Engines

2.5T FSI TT RS Quattro S Tronic
This powerful 394bhp turbocharged five-cylinder makes a superb sound when pushed hard and allows the TT RS (the only model that gets this engine) to fire itself from 0-62mph in less than 4.0sec – that&#39;s supercar levels of performance. With it, though, comes high running costs.
Our pick
1.8T FSI
The entry-level engine in the TT Roadster range doesn’t feel underpowered, being happy to rev and pulling hard from low down its range. The punchier 2.0-litre is tempting, but the 1.8 has a smoother power delivery and is usefully cheaper to buy and run.
2.0T FSI Quattro
With more than 300bhp and four-wheel drive as standard, the TTS can accelerate almost as quickly as a Porsche 911 Cabriolet – particularly if you go for the optional six-speed (S tronic) automatic gearbox. However, the manual version is cheaper to buy and more fun to drive. It’s just a shame the engine doesn’t sound more tuneful.
2.0 TDI Ultra
The diesel is the slowest model in the range, although it’s still effortlessly brisk. The engine is a bit grumbly and un-sports car-like, but provides serious overtaking shove and has low CO2 emissions. It’s available only with a manual gearbox.
2.0T FSI
If you’re a speed demon who likes a bit of excitement, the 2.0-litre is worth considering. It has an extra 50bhp over the 1.8 so performance is seriously impressive – particularly at medium revs – and it sounds great. The engine is available with both six-speed manual and automatic gearboxes, but we’d stick with the manual.
