Audi unveiled the TT Sportback concept at the Paris Motor Show in October last year, touting a new addition to the TT family. The concept, of course, was typically unrealistic to go into production, as it was.
However now a new set of renderings from Auto Moto preview how a production TT Sportback could possibly look like. If this is how Audi introduces the five-door liftback to the global markets, it would for sure, give the Mercedes CLA-Class a run for its money.
The renderings borrow the basis from the original concept itself, but feature elements from the latest generation vehicles. The honeycomb grille has been replaced by the new Singleframe grille seen on the third-gen TT. The wheels, exterior mirrors and door handles are also production-spec. The rear-end features the same full-width tail lamps seen on the original concept. The cylindrical dual-exhaust pipes have been replaced by circular dual twin exhaust pipes. The odd-looking chrome strip on the rear bumper has been dumped.
The French publication says that unlike the Mercedes CLA-Class which has five seats, the TT Sportback will have four seats only. The same 2.0-litre TFSI turbocharged petrol engine and 2.0-litre TDI turbocharged diesel engine can be expected to be offered on the TT Sportback version. An ‘S’ variant with more power coming from the same TFSI engine can also be expected to follow later.
