    Geneva 2014: Third Gen Audi TT

    Audi’s New TT and TTS Make Geneva Debut
    MARCH 03, 2014
    Carscoops

    Even though we got a head start when we saw the new TTS via a set of leaked low-res photos, these were showing us the least interesting bit of the car: the exterior. Now, with the official information on both it and the regular TT released with the Geneva unveiling of the car, we’ll have to see if its technical side will be impressive enough to put it at the top of enthusiasts sports car bucket lists.

    The body is (up to) 90 kg (~200 lbs) lighter than its predecessor, and this enables the 2.0 TDI model, with 184 PS (180 hp) to complete the benchmark sprint in 7.2 seconds and go on to a top speed of 235 km/h (146 mph).

    Obviously, diesels will make up a very small part percentage of new TTs, but with good performance numbers and a claimed average fuel consumption figure of 4.2 l/100 km or (56 mpg US / 67 mpg UK) it might change a few minds; it’s the same engine you get in a Golf GTD.

    The oil burner will make up the bottom of the range at launch, in Europe, or if you want to burn gasoline instead, two TFSI units of different potencies but identical (2.0-liter) displacement are on offer. The first pulls the car to 100 km/h (60 mph) in 6 seconds (or 5.3 with optional Quattro and six-speed S-Tronic) and on to a limited 250 km/h (155 mph). It makes 230 PS (227 hp) and 370 NM (273 lb-ft, spread widely, between 1,600 - 4,300 rpm.

    I've never liked the TT an it appears that won't change anytime soon.

    Agreed. This just looks like they took the lines of the TT and pulled them straight.
    What is happening to the GM that grew up with for these many decades? If I could I would institute a hostile take over and kick the entire board and executives out and fill the positions with creative minds under the age of 35.

    Leftlanenews has a lot of red tt photos and it's not as bad as the blue.

    I don't think I'd buy one as audi have a terrible reputation for reliability but not bad looking and it has 305 hp

    It looks (to me) at lot more like the 1st-gen than does the current car.

    Yeah. I wanted to like the new TT, but this... I just can't.

    It's too TT, not enough Audi.

    Dat interior, doe.

    A friend on mine had the first gen, fun to drive but she had a huge amount of mechanical and electrical issues with it (not to mention a ton of squeekes and rattles). She couldn't deal with it after a couple of years and went running to Acura.

    They were going to try and make this Gen more masculine, so there you go.

    Not my cup of tea, although I do love the daimond quited leather Audi is doing these days.

    Nice MCE! Can't wait until the new one comes out.

    Anyways, the exterior is boring. The interior looks great.

    I wouldn't buy one but I do like the idea of a fun little sports car with great fuel economy. I'd love to see what a Code 130R with Cadillac sheet metal would look like.

    liking it as well and here are my thoughts on it

    http://autoinfoquest.com/2014/03/04/...tt-tts-models/
    “The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair”


    "A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools".

    That's the kind of story I hear over and over again. Who wants a car that's such a Pia?

    It's the ultimate definition of evolution not revolution. Classic TT though.

    I like the way the vertical DRL are continued into the air scoop detailing. I'm sure it'll look better in the flesh and not in that weird blue (photoshop?) colour.

    I do wonder about combining all the displays into the driver's cluster. Sometimes I like to look at that stuff when I'm a passenger...
