The Audi TT is now in its third generation and better than ever. Unlike its previous iterations that weren’t exactly the first choice of enthusiasts, the new TT promises a lot with its highly improved chassis and a powerful petrol motor. Read all about it here in our first drive and in the meantime, here’s a brief look at this sporty new coupe.
Unlike its predecessors, the new TT wears an aggressive look inspired by the bigger Audi R8. The headlamps now use Audi’s Matrix tech.
The MQB architecture, which also underpins a number of other Volkswagen Group cars, has made the new TT Coupe longer and wider.
The front end gets an aggressive look with LED headlamps, a chromed hexagonal front grille and massive air dams.
The side profile wears sporty side skirts and flared wheel arches which house the multi-spoke alloy wheels.
The highlighting bit inside the new TT is the ‘virtual cockpit’, which displays most of the information through a 12.3-inch display located behind the steering wheel.
The new TT gets Audi’s MMI infotainment system, a premium sound system, climate control, powered seats, electric mirrors and lots more.
Audi India is offering the new TT in a single 45 TSI variant, which comes with a turbocharged petrol engine and a dual-clutch gearbox.
The four-cylinder turbocharged engine produces 227bhp of power and 369Nm of torque and is paired with a 6-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox.
Power is channelled to all four wheels through Audi’s infamous Quattro all-wheel drive system. Audi is claiming a 5.6 second acceleration time from 0-100kmph.
The TT competes with BMW Z4 and Porsche Cayman here in India. Click here to read our first drive report on this new model.
