Audi drops some hints on what to expect from the next TT

Audi is kicking of the Detroit Auto Show by announcing its latest concept: the Allroad Shooting Brake. This new concept marks the latest entry into the Audi’s line of E-Tron hybrid/electric vehicles.
 
In this case, the Allroad Shooting Brake gets its primary motivation from a 292hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. However, that gasoline engine is also joined by two electric motors, one on each axle. The onboard 8.8 kWh battery pack which powers the dual motors allows the Allroad Shooting Brake to travel up to 31 miles on battery power before the gasoline engine has to kick in.
 
With the combined powertrains working together, Audi says that its latest concept is good for 400hp and 124 MPGe. The Allroad Shooting Brake will also scoot to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and reach a top-speed (electronically limited) of 155 mph.

 
In its press release, Audi states that, “The compact two-door show car combines a host of visual elements of future sports car models with the Audi-typical allroad concept and ‘shooting brake’ car body form.”
 

Reading between the lines, the Allroad Shooting Brake concept should give us a very strong indication of the styling direction of the third generation TT. As some of you may recall, Audi’s 2005 Shooting Brake Concept previewed the styling direction of the 2007 TT. If you need any more proof, the interior of the Allroad Shooting Brake concept is nothing more than a conceptualized version of the production third-generation TT interior that we showed you last week.

 
The production TT definitely won’t have the grey plastic side cladding, jacked up ride height, or shooting brake configuration, but you can be sure that front clip, side profile (from the doors down) and rear light/valence area are all close to production.
