A redesign to loveAudi's third-gen TT is sure to please
Due for a third-generation redesign, the Audi TT is set to ride on the modular MQB platform by Volkswagen and will be more similar to the first-generation model rather than the second. Due to a drop in weight thanks to the more extensive use of aluminum, the sleek two-door coupe will be more driver-oriented than before.
The driver’s area will feature a simple design with a configurable TFT screen. The two bucket seats and the latest infotainment system will be included. Buyers will have the choice between a 6-speed manual or dual-clutch gearbox. Both front and all-wheel drive options will be offered as well.
It is reported that the U.S. models will feature a direct-injected 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that will generate 220 horsepower. The TTS will feature an uprated 4-banger that will generate 300 horsepower while the TT RS will generate 380 horsepower variant courtesy of Volkswagen’s 5-cylinder engine.
Scheduled to makes its debut in 2014, the third-generation Audi TT will likely be spotted at the Geneva Motor Show in March while its convertible option will likely debut the year after.
