After last night’s online reveal, the Audi TT Sportback concept is currently being showcased at the Paris Motor Show. Its heart and soul is a four-cylinder TFSI 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine outputting 400 HP (294 kW) and a peak torque of 332 lb-ft (450 Nm). All that power is channeled through a 7-speed S tronic gearbox to a quattro all-wheel drive system, granting the vehicle with a 0-100 km/h run in 3.9 seconds.
According to Audi, the TT Sportback concept is capable of returning 33.6 mpg US (7 liters / 100 km) and emits 162 g/km of CO2. The vehicle is 4.47 meters long, 1.89 meters wide and 1.38 meters tall and its wheelbase stands at 2.63 meters. When compared to the regular third generation TT, the concept seen here is 29 cm longer, 6 cm wider and 3 cm lower while the wheelbase has been stretched by 12 cm.
Riding on 21-inch alloy wheels, the Audi TT Sportback concept comes nicely equipped with laser high-beam headlights, a new front grille with a honeycomb grille, a dual exhaust setup while on the inside the layout closely echoes the regular TT.
Audi hasn’t said anything yet about turning this concept into a production model but we already know a third body style part of the TT family is in the works so it could very well end up being a more practical version such as this one with rear doors and a bigger trunk.
