TT Coupé 2.0 TDI now available with quattro

Audi now offers the TT 2.0 TDI in all-wheel-drive drive version, with power transmitted by the S tronic six-speed dual-clutch transmission. 

Using an electro-hydraulic multi-plate clutch, the quatro drive distributes torque to both axles, chanelling engine's power to the front wheels. In case traction decreases, the clutch averts direction from torque to rear in only a few milliseconds.

As it is also integrated into the optional Audi drive select dynamic handling system, the clutch management enables the driver to specify TT in the modes comfort, auto, dynamic, efficiency and individual.

At a certain extent, the quattro drive runs with an intelligent software feature of the Electronic Stabilization Control (ESC), which allows better handling. Audi claims that even on low-friction surfaces, the permanent all-wheel drive system allows safe and controlled drifts.

Optional modules include the brand's magnetic ride adaptive damper control and the deluxe automatic air conditioning.Audi brings quattro all-wheel-drive to TT 2.0 TDI
