Unveiled last March during the Geneva motor show, the third Audi TT of its name will arrive in concessions at the start of October. The coupé(whilst waiting for the cabriolet) will be built alongside the sedan and cabriolet A3 on the production lines of Gyor, Hungary. To this end, a third rollout team will be in place mid-August to follow the rhythm of production, which can hit up to 160'000 vehicles a year.
Despite its obvious family resemblance to the previous generation, the new Audi TT can boast entirely new technologies, starting with its chassis: it's resting on the MQB chassis, which it shares with almost all the compacts from the Volkswagen group. It also has the best multimedia that the group offers: TFT 12,3 inch screen, MMI, 4G connection, etc...
At its launch, the Audi TT will be offered in three engine setups. The fuel engine will be organised around the 2.0 TFSI in either 230 or 310 hp, the latter one reserved for the TTS. For those who prefer diesel, the 2.0 TDI Ultra with 184 horsepower is also offered. This one would probably be the most successful in our country because other than its restricted consumption, it would be the gateway to the TT range, at about 40'000 euros. A more modest 1.8 engine will join the ranks from next year, with about 180 horsepower on offer.
Are you willing to let yourself be tempted by this new Audi TT?
