After being spied undergoing tests on numerous occasions over the past few months, the Audi TT Coupe is finally going to be launched in the Indian market tomorrow.
Based on Volkswagen group’s popular MQB (Modular Transverse Matrix) platform, the new Audi TT Coupe carries design influences from the Allroad Shooting Brake concept as well as its predecessor. Unlike the previous generation Audi TT though, the new TT Coupe wears an aggressive look courtesy the chromed hexagonal front grille, narrow headlamps with LED units and massive air dams in the bumpers. The side profile features sporty side skirts and the flared wheel arches house the 20-spoke alloys. The rear of the TT Coupe sports a bootlid spoiler, LED tail lamps an quad exhaust pipes.
Internationally, the Audi TT Coupe is offered with the option of a diesel and a petrol engine. While the 2.0-litre TDI diesel produces 184bhp and 380Nm of torque, the 2.0-litre TFSI petrol engine is offered in two states of tune. The base petrol produces 230bhp and 369Nm of torque while the TT Coupe S version will pump out 310bhp and 380Nm of torque. In India though, the Audi TT Coupe will be available only in the 45 TSI trim, which comes with the 230bhp petrol engine with an all-wheel-drive (AWD) system and a six-speed dual clutch S-Tonic transmission.
We expect the Audi TT Coupe to retail in the Rs 60 lakh to Rs 65 lakh price bracket, which should make it rival other expensive two-seater sportscars like the BMW Z4, Porsche Boxster and the Mercedes-Benz SLK.
