The Audi TT sports car line-up has been given a facelift for 2011, with fuel efficiency the main focus of the engineers.

Engine efficiency in the TT has been improved by 14 per cent due to several improvements in technology in the sporty coupe.

The biggest change is the upgrade for the 2.0-litre Turbo FSI petrol engine to include improvements in power, torque and efficiency over the outgoing 200PS version. Combined with a six-speed manual transmission, it now delivers 211PS and a 0-62mph time of 6.1 seconds.

Fuel consumption in the 2.0-litre petrol has increased to 42.8mpg and CO2 emissions have been cut from 183g/km to 154g/km.

Another improvement in the Audi TT include a sports button from the TT RS available across the range, allowing throttle response, steering assistance and engine note to be altered.

A new exterior design, xenon headlamps and new colours for both the interior and exterior are now included as standard for S line versions.
