Emissions summary

The TT performs fairly badly on the eco front. With an average of 226g/km CO2 across the range, its emissions are a little high for a sports roadster. It's worth noting that the line-up does not feature any diesel models, which typically produce less carbon dioxide than petrol engines with similar power outputs. The range is not very frugal, averaging 30mpg.
