The TT Sportback Concept, is a five-door, 400-horsepower version of the brand’s stylish sports car and at this point, it looks likely to herald the debut of a third body style for Audi’s design icon. The exterior is reminiscent of the third-generation car, although there are a number of styling decisions that remind us of the compact A3, particularly in the rear end. The most notable departure from the standard TT formula is the TT Sportback’s two additional doors and extra seats.
However we’re guessing the engine in the concept will not extend to production as the concept features a 400-horsepower, 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder. That allows the TT Sportback to hit 62 miles per hour in a scant 3.9 seconds. A seven-speed S-tronic dual-clutch transmission manages this power and is paired with the Quattro all-wheel-drive system.
The TT’s new Virtual Cockpit, which features an endlessly configurable 12.3in TFT screen powered by potent microprocessors, naturally reappears here, as does the reimagined air conditioning system.
“With the TT, Audi created one of the automotive design icons of the last 20 years,” says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, Audi Board Member for Technical Development. “In the years since, we have designed our sporty and elegant five‑door Audi A5 Sportback and Audi A7 Sportback. In our Audi TT Sportback concept show car, we are now fusing both concepts to form a new member of a potential TT family.”
