The Audi TT Sportback concept has been revealed at the 2014 Paris Motor Show as a stretched, five-door take on the TT Coupe as Audi looks to fill yet another niche.
Audi has long been the master of the niche, so it’s no real surprise they’re looking for ways to ‘extend’ the Audi TT in to a series of new niche models.
The latest take is this, the Audi TT Sportback concept, which has arrived at the Paris Motor Show as a big brother to the TT Coupe, with an extra pair of doors and an extra 290mm in length.
Audi has also played with the look of the TT Sportback, with a new hexagonal grill, new headlights and a new bumper up front and the new tail lights and smaller back window give the TT Sportback an individual look (well, as individual as an Audi ever gets). Inside, however, looks pure TT Coupe with a very familiar front cabin and a pair of individual seats in the back.
Power for the TT Sportback comes from the 394bhp version of the 2.o litre TFSI engine with 332lb/ft of torque mated to a seven-speed S tronic gearbox sending power to all four wheels and promising decent p[erformance – 0-62mph takes 3.9 seconds.
Will the Audi TT Sportback make production? You can bet on it.
