Displaying a much cooler concept TT on the same day as your brand-new one: not great thinking, Audi.
Yesterday, we told you about the awesome 420 horsepower TT Quattro Sport that Audi unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. Much more important for the company – yet much less interesting for us – was the actual production third-generation 2015 Audi TT. The car looks great, gets a range of engines and should be an excellent car. But it just didn’t get as much attention as its concept brother, which looked ready to roll and scream.
So, here’s the deal for the new TT: the three engine choices are a 2.0-liter turbodiesel making 184 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, as well as the 2.0-liter TSI turbo-four in two power formats. The weaker makes 230hp and 272 lb-ft, while the improved-output 2.0T makes 310-hp and 280 lb-ft. All three get a fresh interior with Virtual Cockpit features, and that new, if uninspired, exterior. Now where is that Quattro Sport Concept?
