After a hiatus from sales thanks to the new WLTP emissions standards in Europe, the 2020 Audi TT RS is back on sale in Australia and priced from $134,900 plus on-road costs.

Still using the same 294kW/480Nm 2.5-litre five-cylinder turbo petrol engine, the 2020 Audi TT RS is capable of a 3.7 second 0-100km/h sprint – just 0.5 seconds off the R8 supercar, which has twice as many cylinders.

In order to comply with new emissions legislation, the TT RS’ engine now includes technology such as a lightweight aluminium crank case dual injection, larger intakes and a high pressure 1.35 bar (19.6psi) turbocharger. Audi claims fuel consumption of 8L/100km – 0.4L/100km less than the model it replaces. Standard on the 2020 Audi TT RS is a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.

Standard equipment for the new TT RS is Audi’s sport exhaust system with active baffles in the muffler that can be activated via a button in the cabin. Also, standard are Matrix LED headlights although optional for the new Audi TT RS are the new Matrix OLED taillights. Audi’s magnetic ride control suspension system is also standard, it is 10mm lower than the regular TT and can be controlled via the driving mode selector.

As before, the 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit is also standard kit, which includes special RS features such as a lap timer, a larger rev counter, a g-force meter and coloured shift lights. Also, in the Audi Virtual cockpit is the standard Apple Carplay and Android Auto while wireless charging is also included. The sound system is a 680W 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen system. Available are two different RS design packages which change the interior elements and sides of the front seats to either red or blue.

TT RS comes standard with six airbags, active lane and side assist, parking sensors with rear view camera and tyre pressure monitor though auto emergency braking is not available.

There are two service plans available for the 2020 Audi TT RS, a three-year comprehensive service plan that will set owners back $2,320 or a five-year plan which will cost $3,420. Choosing the five-year plan will mean an average service cost of $684.

Pricing for the new Audi TT RS will start at $134,900 before on road costs. While this is $35,000 more than the lesser TT S, it is actually $2,340 less than the previous TT RS with more standard equipment.
