The Audi TT was a big success in its first generation with people from all over the automotive spectrum flocking to the coupe or convertible. Whilst that car was mainly about the looks, the following model was far from all show and no go. The second-gen TT looked much more grown up and had a chassis that made it very enjoyable to drive. Why am I briefly recalling the history of the TT? Because there is a new one of course! 2015 Audi TT revealed at Geneva motor show.
Audi’s third generation TT will go on sale late this year and promises to be the best incarnation yet. Although retaining similar design architecture and proportions to the car it replaces, this model is in fact all-new. The German’s new family face accompanies some harder shoulder lines to define the 2015 Audi TT. Its chrome grill and angled headlights produce a more masculine tone to what has been described in the past as a “hairdressers car.” Upon launch there will be two petrol variants of the machine, the TT and TT S. Both utilising the VW MBQ platform and a 2.0 litre turbocharged engine. The cars will produce 226BHP and 306BHP respectively. The TT S comes standard with all wheel drive and is capable of a 0-62MPH time of 4.7 seconds. This 2+2 is also set to get a 2.0 litre diesel engine in the TT 2.0 TDI claiming 67.3MPG.
The interior is thoroughly modern mimicking the design of the new Audi A3. As well as more space the car also boast an innovative digital instrument panel.
