Audi TT (Mk3, 2014 - 2023) – MPG and running costs

The Audi TT isn’t a cheap car to buy but does deliver strong efficiency figures

Evo rating
Price
from £36,365
  • Interior still superb; sharp and restrained aesthetic; better to drive than any TT before
  • Less sharp to drive than many hot hatches; driving position not suitable for all

Relative efficiency is a welcome attribute of the EA888 engine. Entry-level 194bhp models will crack (an achievable) 40mpg on the WLTP cycle, with the 242bhp models slipping just below that, and CO2 ratings are also relatively positive from 151g/km. Quattro models are rated at around 179g/km, and average around 36mpg. Not so bad for something that’ll hit 62mph in just over 5sec.

The calibration of the standard-fit seven-speed DSG is partly the source of these strong efficiency figures, but so too is the relatively lithe 1280kg kerb weight of front-wheel-drive 40TFSI models. Quattro models add a further 100kg or so to the total.

A TT can be barely more taxing to run financially than an Audi A3, with little in the way of exotic materials or high-stress components, short of the rubber band-like 30-profile of the 20-inch tyres standard on the top-two trim levels.
