    Audi has revealed the new Audi TT Sportback concept. It is expected to be unveiled at the upcoming Paris motor show. It evolves from the third-gen TT Coupé sold overseas, which will also be coming to Indian markets in 2015.

    The five-door hatchback is third in a series of Audi TT-based concepts, following the TT Allroad Shooting Brake and TT Offroad concepts revealed earlier this year. It is based on a lengthened version of the third-generation TT’s aluminium and high strength steel platform, which itself is a part of the Volkswagen Group’s Modular Transverse Architecture structure.

    The Audi TT Sportback concept measures 4470mm in length – making it some 290mm longer than the recently introduced third-generation TT Coupé. The addition of two conventionally hinged rear doors has been made possible by a lengthening of the three-door TT Coupé’s 2505mm wheelbase. Reports say the TT Sportback also incorporates two individual rear seats that split and fold to extend boot capacity to 850 litres.

    Power for Audi’s latest concept is said to hail from the same turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder showcased in the TT quattro Sport concept revealed at the Geneva motor show 2013. It is claimed to deliver 414bhp and channel drive through a six-speed S-tronic dual clutch gearbox and quattro four-wheel-drive system.
