The 2015 Audi TT will likely feature more simplified interior and exterior styling but its engine lineup will be more powerful than ever.
Although it’s not scheduled to launch until sometime later in 2014, details are beginning to pour in about the next-generation Audi TT. The third-gen model, as we’ve heard before, will instantly be recognizable but its exterior design will apparently be simpler than it is now - think something like a more updated version of the original TT’s styling. Car and Driver has also now provided new information regarding the next TT’s powertrain. According to them, the base engine will be a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder featuring direct injection and a total output of around 220 horsepower.
The new midlevel TTS will see a bump from the current 265 to 300 hp while the TT-RS will pump out 380 hp from an improved version of its current five-cylinder engine. Inside, expect to find an interior that’s also more simplified in style but with a distinctly futuristic look. It was also clarified that the new TT will ride on VW's new MQB platform. About a year after the new TT Coupe launches, the Roadster version will debut followed shortly thereafter by the new A5.
