Audi TT offroad concept revealed

Couple of weeks ago Audi previewed a new crossover concept for Beijing Motor Show. here it is and it is not called Q4 as initially rumoured. This sunny yellow show car is called TT offroad concept, “combining the sportiness of a coupe with the utility of a compact SUV”.

The TT offroad concept uses the same plug-in hybrid drivetrain as the Audi Allroad concept from the Detroit Auto Show, combining a 288bhp 2.0-litre TFSI and a disc-shaped 54bhp electric motor integrated in the six-speed e-S tronic and a second 113bhp in the rear axle for a total output of 402bhp and 650Nm of torque.

Range in purely EV mode is up to 31 miles and average fuel economy is an impressive 149mpg.

Visually the TT offroad concept is distinguished from the Allroad concept with narrower headlights, two extra doors, larger wheels and a different roofline at the rear similar to the current Q3. In fact it looks like a much better version of the Q3.

The interior offers space for four, featuring elements from the new third-generation TT, as well as the Q family on the centre console and the doors, like the robustly designed tunnel support and functional cup holders in front of the shift lever.

There are no production plans at the moment and according to Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg: “The concept is a glimpse of how we might imagine a new model in a future TT family”
