Due to some leaked sketches, we already knew Audi’s big surprise for the 2014 Paris Motor Show, but now it became official: this is the TT Sportback Concept! According to Audi, the stylish four-door TT Sportback Concept has a length of 4.47 meters (14.7 ft), it is 1.89 meters (6.2 ft) long and 1.38 meters (4.5 ft) high, while featuring a wheelbase of 2.63 meters (8.6 ft).
When compared with the TT Coupe, the concept car is 29 cm longer, 6 cm wider and 3 cm lower, while the wheelbase is 12 cm larger. The Mars Red paintwork perfectly underlines the design, which consists of a new front bumper with stylish air inlets, a redesigned Singleframe grille and newly designed headlights featuring laser technology.
The rear end is completely new and features stylish LED taillights with vertical separators inspired by the R18 and large elliptical tailpipes embedded in the air diffuser and linked by a trim. Inside, we find the same stylish dashboard seen on the TT, as well as the new instrument cluster consisting of a 12.3-inch display, black floor ats made from rubberized material and four super sport seats with integrated headrests.
The TT Sportback Concept is powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI engine that generates 400 hp (294 kW) at 6,400 rpm and 450 Nm (331.9 lb-ft) of torque.
Bolted to a seven-speed S tronic transmission which delivers the power to the wheels through a permanent all-wheel drive Quattro system, the engine pushes the concept from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds. Still, fuel consumption remains low at 7 l/100 km or 33.6 US mpg, with CO2 emissions of 162 g/km. [source: Audi]
