Audi TT Sportback

Paris 2014 – Audi TT Sportback Concept – News and photos

The 2014 Paris Motor Show kicks off properly tomorrow but, it seems, manufacturers are more intent on unveiling every concept and new car before the actual event. Regardless of that, here’s the Audi TT Sportback concept show car:

Ever wished the TT coupé came with five-doors? No? Well, Audi has already got an answer for something you hadn’t even worried about, in the shape of the TT Sportback. Given the brand already has a Sportback version of the A5, along with the A7, it’s perhaps reasonable to presume Audi is concerned about a potential gap in the five-door coupé range it offers.

Longer, wider and lower than the regular TT,  the Sportback concept also features a 12cm longer wheelbase; presumably to incorporate some room for those two potential rear seat passengers. We particularly like the subtly kicked up boot lid – a feature similar to that seen on the A5 and A7 – which follows the elongated roofline. Being a concept, the wheels are naturally 21″ in diameter, and look distinctly similar to the ones fitted to the 2003 Nuvolari concept car. The TT Sportback also features Audi’s favourite technology feature at present; laser main beam headlights.
