Audi confirms development of a third TT body style

Article by Christian A., on September 13, 2014

Audi has just introduced the third-generation TT Coupe and we will see the TT Roadster at the 2014 Paris Motor Show next month. Still, Audi’s development chief Ulrich Hackenberg revealed the fact that the German company is working on a new TT body style.

This is a clear hint that Audi is indeed working on a crossover version of the TT, previewed earlier this year at the 2014 Beijing Auto Show with the TT Offroad Concept.

This will probably be the most interesting addition in the TT lineup and will be built for customers who want vehicles with a higher riding position than the current coupes and roadsters. If you don’t remember, the Audi TT Offroad Concept was powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI petrol engine developing 292 hp (215 kW) and 380 Nm (280.3 lb-ft) of torque, but also by an electric motor that generates 40 kW and 220 Nm (262.3 lb-ft) of torque.

Despite its dimensions (4.39 m long; height of 1.85 meters; 2.63 meters wide), the TT Offroad Concept is able to hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.2 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited at 5.2 seconds.

Using just the electric motor, top speed is limited at 130 km/h or 80.8 mph. Fuel consumption is impressive: just 1.9 l/100 km (123.8 US mpg) and CO2 emissions of 45 g/km.

With a full tank of fuel, the TT Offroad Concept offers a range of up to 880 km/h or 546.8 miles. Still, we don’t know if Audi will offer a hybrid version of the TT crossover but if it does, we will definitely buy one!
