Audi revealed today the first official sketches with the all-new 2015 TT that will make its world debut next month at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. As you can see from the sketches, the design is inspired by the Concept seen at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, but don’t expect something radical, as the 2015 Audi TT will not show a fancy design.
The front end is dominated by horizontal lines, the singleframe grille is broad and flat, and the two contours form a V-pattern on the hood, The four rings logo now sits centrally on the hood, echoing the more expensive Audi R8. Moreover, the car features new headlights that come with optional LED technology or the newest Matrix LED technology.
Many details seen on the brand new TT are inspired by the original model. The flat greenhouse looks like an entity in its own right. The shape of the C-post, with a slight kink, gives the TT a powerful, athletic look and enhances the impression of tension. At the rear, we find redesigned taillights and the third brake light with a flat strip shape that links them.
All TT versions feature two large, round exhaust tailpipes in the diffuser, while the TTS comes with four tailpipes. The interior was already shown here and we already know that the center console and door trims have flowing, matching shapes.
Seen from the above, the dashboard resembles the wing of an aircraft, while the round air vents evoke the engines and incorporate air conditioning controls. The central MMI monitor is now replaced by the Audi virtual cockpit.
When Audi’s first-generation TT came out in 1998, it was considered a design revolution and icon with its formally coherent and strictly geometrical design language. For the TT’s third generation, designers at Audi returned to many of the original ideas and applied them in a new, dynamic, and diverse context.
Horizontal lines dominate the new Audi TT’s front. Its Singleframe grille is flatter and broader compared to that of the earlier model, and a powerful line divides it into two zones. From the grille’s top corners run sharp contours, which then form a V across the car’s hood. The hood bears the Audi insignia of four rings. The air intakes, meanwhile, have struts that direct a part of the flow from the front towards the flanks.
Moreover, the new TT has a determined look, thanks to its flat headlights. Xenon plus units also come as standard, and customers can opt for LED headlights or the ones showcasing the Audi Matrix LED technology, wherein controllable individual LEDs generate the high beam. On the two versions, the separating strip found in the headlights creates an unmistakable contour.
