For both engine versions Audi offers a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 45 TSFI is also available with a manual transmission with six speeds. In both types of transmission, the close-ratio lower gears enable powerful acceleration while the wide ratio of each transmission’s highest gear reduces engine speed and with it fuel consumption.
Superior sportiness: the quattro drive
The 45 TFSI with 180 kW (245 hp) can be combined with the quattro permanent all-wheel drive (combined fuel consumption in l/100: 7.3 – 7.0* (32.2 – 33.6 US mpg); combined CO2 emission in g/km: 166 – 160* (267.2 – 257.5 g/mi)) whose hydraulic multi-plate clutch is designed for the utmost dynamic and efficiency. The electronic controller combines stability and driving pleasure. When the car is driven in a sporty way, the system literally presses the TT into a curve and allows controlled drifts on low-friction road surfaces. Management of the multi-plate clutch is a technical module of the Audi drive select dynamic handling system, now standard.
*Fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures given in ranges depend on the tires/wheels used.
