Official information on both the Audi TT and TTS have been released with the Geneva unveiling of the car. The body is (up to) 90 kg (~200 lbs) lighter than its predecessor, enabling the 2.0 TDI model, with 184 PS (180 hp) to complete the benchmark sprint in 7.2 seconds and go on to a top speed of 235 km/h (146 mph).
There are also two TFSI units of different potencies but identical (2.0-liter) displacement are on offer. The first pulls the car to 100 km/h (60 mph) in 6 seconds (or 5.3 with optional Quattro and six-speed S-Tronic) and a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). It makes 230 PS (227 hp) and 370 NM (273 lb-ft, spread widely, between 1,600 - 4,300 rpm.
The second engine will be offered with more power at 310 PS, not 300 (306 hp), along with a torque figure that’s only 10 Nm up on that of the TT – 380 NM (280 lb-ft) which comes in 100 rpm later but remains at 100 percent up until 5,700 rpm. It sprints to 100 km/h in 4.7 seconds and shares the same limited top speed as the non-S TT.

When you’re in the market for a used Mazda in Toronto, you may be unsure about whether or not you’re better off looking for certified pre-owned or plain old used.
