The all-new, third-generation Audi TT will make its launching at the 2014 Geneva Electric motor Show following month. These are the first official pictures and specifics.
As you can view, the only photos of the brand-new TT released so far are layout sketches, rather than photos of the genuine thing. But also in pen and ink one point is glaringly noticeable– the brand-new, third-generation TT looks quite like the initial variation, as well as the existing TT.
How is the 2014 Audi TT influenced by the 1998 initial?
The very first Audi TT was released in 1998, and entirely revitalised the sleek costs cars section. It was honored specifically for the Bauhaus-influenced designing that has actually turned it into something of a design symbol, and basically guaranteed its future classic standing.
Audi is unashamedly circling back to this preliminary success for the brand-new automobile, sharing the coupe’s profile and contours all refer to the very first version– dismissing the present second-gen vehicle entirely.
From the sketches it looks like the nose of the new TT is probably a little flatter and squarer– Audi makes endorsement to a ‘V-pattern’ chapeau total with four-ring logo, which has been moved out of the grille in a way the same as the R8. With strong tire arcs and bunches of straight lines, its family connections are unmistakable.
Audi TT Specs
In addition to informing us about the illuminations and the interior, Audi is keeping peaceful regarding the TT’s technical specs– though it’s rarely a leap of belief to picture it will be improved the Volkswagen Group’s new MQB platform, the exact same one that underpins the most up to date Audi A3 and VW Golf.
The engine line-up shouldn’t be excessive of a mystery, either– anticipate an all-turbo option varying from 1.8 litres to 2.0 litres for the routine versions, with power outcomes starting at around 150hp for the entry-level diesel and 190hp for the most basic fuel.
Audi has currently verified a brand-new TTS performance design, claiming this will showcase the usual quad tailpipes. We predict this will utilize the exact same 300hp 2.0-litre turbo petroleum as the present Audi S3.
Front-wheel drive and quattro four-wheel drive will certainly be provided, relying on energy output and specification, together with both hand-operated and DSG auto transmissions.
Just what’s special about the 2014 Audi TT?
The brand-new TT’s fronts lights feature dividing struts for the LED daytime running illuminations, mirroring the struts in the air intakes surrounding the single-frame grille.
These will certainly be offered as optional full-LED illuminations or also with Audi’s all new Matrix LED technology, which can actively stop independently to make the most of brightness without blinding other visitor traffic.
At the rear the lightings take on a comparable style, and complying with the lead of the daytime running illuminations at the front, at the very least some section of them will be illuminated in any way times, providing the new TT an unique visual trademark.
Audi is talking large discuss the lean interior decoration of the brand-new TT, which it uncovered last month at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). It has even done away with the main show screen for its MMI infotainment system, installation a brand-new ‘Audi virtual cockpit’ electronic tool set-up as an alternative.
Timeless TT features such as the ‘wind turbine’ air vents will be kept, however we’re informed they now include the cooling controls as well (view the gallery over). This is visiting be one ultra-modern, techno-tastic cars.
Pricing, full and on-sale technical details for the brand new 2014 Audi TT will certainly be uncovered either at or simply before the Geneva Motor Show. MSN Cars will be on the ground from 4 March to bring you all the information.
