Audi South Africa is aiming to boost the sales of its rapidly ageing TT sports car by introducing a new entry-level model. The new car is immediately available from Audi dealerships with a number of standard items. But what makes it entry-level is the engine installed.

The 1.8T FSI produces 118kW of power and 250Nm of pulling torque. They say it drinks an average of 6.4 litres per 100km and comes either with a 6-speed manual or an S tronic gearbox. The standard items installed include Bluetooth connectivity, 17-inch wheels, a multi-function steering wheel and shift paddles behind the wheel for the S tronic.

TT is overdue for a complete replacement and we suspect such a car will appear before 2013 is over. In the meantime, here are prices for this new baby:

6-speed manual (R392 000)
S tronic (R409 000)
