Turbocharged 2.5-liter engine

Under the hood, the Audi TT's 2.0-liter turbo-four has been replaced with a 2.5-liter TFSI inline-five in the RS trim level. In this configuration, the RS produces 340 horsepower and 331 pound-feet of torque. Zero to 60 happens in less than five seconds, as the RS continues onward to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.
