A series of sketches purporting to reveal the sleek lines and exterior styling details of a new Audi TT Sportback concept due to make its world premier at next week’s Paris motor show have leaked to the internet.
Based on a lengthened version of the third-generation TT’s aluminium and high strength steel platform, itself part of the Volkswagen’s Group’s Modular Transverse Architecture structure, the TT Sportback is said to preview plans for a style-led model from Audi to rival the Mercedes-Benz CLA.
Information accompanying the sketches, all credited to Audi by German media, suggests the Audi TT Sportback concept measures 4470mm in length – making it some 290mm longer than the recently introduced third-generation TT Coupé.
The addition of two conventionally hinged rear doors has been made possible by a lengthening of the three-door TT Coupé’s 2505mm wheelbase. Reports say the TT Sportback also incorporates two individual rear seats that split and fold to extend boot capacity to 850 litres.
