1.8 Liter Audi TT coming up
The 1.8 Liter engine is good for 158hp. And it could cost as much as $5000 less than the regular 2.0 Liter engine.
I say why not.
The Miata I drove a while ago had about the same power and it was fine.
If this cuts $5000 off the TT price I’m all for it.

Miata is at least 500lb lighter. Is 1.8 turbo or n/a engine?
I own a skoda octavia with this engine in it and its a cracker of an engine! Just as good as the 2.0 litre version found in the Skoda, Seat, Audi and VW ranges. Should be well suited to the TT as it’s relatively light weight and also quite spunky. Hasn’t this car been a while coming?
in canada the tt starts at around 47000, and that’s the coupe, the convertible costs 50000 to start,
the miata starts at 28000
47000 for a FWD 200 hp tt is pushing it already, by adding a 42000 TT that has less hp than base model camry and accord is only making matters worse.
Can you imagine a 1.8 Liter car going for $40k and start breaking in 40k miles? Audi needs a wake up call.
The TT is horribly overpriced starting at $36K without quattro.
$30K would be more reasonable…
Audi announced earlier the A5 will be offered this summer in the US also with a 2.0 TFSI.
