Audi is quietly planning the launch of the third generation TT sports car, which will continue down a path away from anything resembling the cutesy original. It’s certain to retain the unique profile, but Audi is planning a large grill up front (duh!) and larger lower air intakes. Out back, there will be an active spoiler, as well as a small integrated roof spoiler.
Based on the brand’s new MQB platform that will also underpin cars like the next-gen Audi A3 and MKVII VW Golf, power will continue to come primarily from turbocharged 4-cylinder engines, with 180 hp in base trim (unlikely for the U.S.), and a 220 hp version. Audi global R&D chief Michael Dick has confirmed the TT-S and TT-RS will return as well. Look for slight power increases in each model.
Inside, the TT could see a single unit LCD screen instrument panel that’s also designated for the next-gen R8.
