Fancy yourself a compact sports car? There are few names more popular than the Audi TT. In production since 1998, the car wasn’t known for its appeal to hardcore enthusiasts. However, things seem to have changed over a span of 2 generations.

The new model is based on Volkswagen’s MQB platform, which makes it 50 kg lighter than the outgoing model. It packs a 2.0 litre twin-turbocharged in-line four petrol motor which produces 227 bhp and 37.7 kgm of torque. Power is delivered through Audi’s 6-speed S-tronic double clutch gearbox, which happens to be one of the smoothest units out there.

Internationally the top of the range Audi TT S happens to be the most powerful variant with 306 bhp, but it’s unclear at this point whether that would make it to Indian shores. The new Audi TT is a much sharper looking successor with a revamped interior which includes a 12.3” instrument cluster that doubles up as an infotainment system or a SatNav monitor. All of which will set you back by Rs 60.34 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).
