AUDI'S third-generation TT sports coupe will roll into showrooms next month with just one 2.0 TFSI variant from launch, priced from $71,950 before on-road costs.

The new TT undercuts the previous-generation equivalent 2.0 TFSI variant by $3540, however that version was only available with dual-clutch automatic transmission, whereas the new pricing is for the six-speed manual.

The outgoing generation has a more affordable 1.8 TFSI option in its ranks and the new 2.0-litre four-cylinder version could be joined later by a similar variant, but Audi Australia has only confirmed a 2.0 TDI diesel option will not be joining the ranks this time round.

With sales of the outgoing model predominantly for petrol variants, more potent spark-ignition versions are on the way, but for now customers will have the choice of two Sport and S line equipment levels for the lone 2.0 TFSI variant.

Its turbocharged four-pot sends 169kW and 370Nm through a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed double clutch automatic transmissions, while final drive is a choice of front wheels or Audi's iconic quattro four-wheel drive system.

Acceleration to 100km/h is dispatched within 5.3 seconds with fuel economy of 6.4 litres per 100km. The German car-maker doesn't specify which combination the figures apply to, but it is likely the information relates to the lighter front-wheel drive and more efficient auto transmission.

Audi Australia managing director Andrew Doyle is confident strong interest in the new model would make it the best selling TT to date.

“With almost 250 orders already placed for the new TT, we are confident that it will be the most successful ever,” he said.

“The all-new new third-generation model extends the sporty concept that the original began, and now more than ever, the new TT is a true sportscar and also a technology leader.

“In Australia, we know that our TT customers place a high value on the kind of technology that is showcased in this car, so we have worked hard to ensure a really outstanding level of standard equipment.” All versions will get the futuristic 'virtual cockpit' which was revealed in January last year and confines all vehicle information to the driver's instrument panel rather than shared with a central dashboard screen.

The TTs interior features a blend of Alcantara and leather with electric adjustment of the front seats, while its exterior features LED headlights, wheel designs up to 20-inches and styling that honours both the original and second generation models.

Further details of the two equipment levels have not been released at this stage, nor has pricing for the higher grade TT options such as automatic and quattro transmissions, but further information will be announced closer to the Australian launch in February.

The first convertible versions of the TT will arrive in the second quarter of 2015 and a hotter 2.0-litre TTS will follow in the third quarter of this year as well as a possible new version of the scorching five-cylinder TTRS later on.
