Next-gen Audi TT to use MQB platform and move upmarket image

The German based automaker Audi has big plans for its future TT generation which is expected to move upmarket, get a more stylish design and ride on the MQB platform.

The future generation of the Audi TT will get distinctive LED headlights, a variety of four-cylinder and five-cylinder engines under its hood, a more angular and stylish design than the outgoing version and probably the most important feature is that these “goodies” will help the model move upmarket. The announcement has been made by Wolfgang Egger, who has spoken to Car and Driver during the 2013 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

The upcoming Audi TT will ride on the MQB platform and it will have several outputs from its variety of four- and five-cylinder engines. Fans of the Audi TT will also get to enjoy the top of the line TT-RS, which should produce a total output of 400 HP (298 kW). The new generation of the Audi TT will come with front-wheel drive as standard and with optional all-wheel drive. The model should debut in 2014. Additional details on the future Audi TT generation are limited for the moment and will be announced close to its debut.
