The production version of the Audi TT Sportback could see a launch at the 2015 Guangzhou Auto Show on the 20th of November. This is the world’s first 4-door coupe in the actual sense if excused by the now defunct Mazda RX-8.
The production version of the 4-door Audi TT Sportback looks even more beautiful than the already charming TT Coupe. The front is characterized by the same open-mouthed honeycomb chrome grille and the sharp angular headlights with LED DRLs embedded in them. The front bumper sees an slim element on the lower side which runs along the width of the car. The car’s side profile though looks elongated to fit in the rear set of doors. The roofline falls into the rear of the car in the same coupe-like manner and scores high on aesthetics. The rear looks all new with the slim taillights and dual chrome tailpipes. The TT Sportback is 4.47 metres long, 1.89 metres wide, and 1.38 metres high and has a wheelbase of 2.63 metres. This makes it 290mm longer, 60mm wider, 30mm shorter, along with a 120mm increase in wheelbase over the TT Coupe.
The Audi TT Sportback will be based on the same MQB platform as the Coupe and the Roadster, and so will naturally be powered by similar engine options too. The concept shown at Paris had a 2.0-litre turbocharged TFSI motor under its hood that churned out 400PS of max power. Although, rumors have it that the Sportback will be also powered by a 2.0-litre Ultra TDi motor. The car will get the Quattro 4-wheel drive system connected to a 6-speed Dual Clutch Gearbox. The Sportback will feature an independent multi link suspension set up at the rear along with regular struts doing duty at the front.
