Audi claims the car will reach 62mph from rest in 7.2 seconds, 7.1 seconds with the twin-clutch gearbox, and top out at 140mph. With either ‘box 44.1mpg and 147g CO2 are claimed.
Sport models get 17-inch alloy wheels, electronic climate control, leather and Alcantara combination upholstery and a Concert audio system with iPod connectivity.
