Scoop: The all new Audi TT likely to launch in India next year
The test prototypes of the new 2015 Audi TT were caught recently while testing on the Indian roads. However, there is no reason for the Audi car lovers in India to get elated so soon, as the car is yet not confirmed for the Indian market. Though the 2015 Audi TT might as well land up in India, it is certainly not going to come this year.
When inquired about the expected launch of the 2015 TT, the officials at Audi India said that these test mules of the car do not belong to the company. This also sounds pretty logical, as the test vehicles of the 2015 Audi TT have been spotted for more than three months now and that too when considered about its launch in India, if and when Audi decides to bring this car to India it would be a Completely Built Unit and so the car manufacturer does not actually need to invest heavily for its Indian launch. Hence, the test prototypes of the 2015 Audi TT that were spotted in India could therefore be the cars assigned to some testing agency in order to test some particular technical components or country specific road tests. This testing and evaluation procedure is expected to been done either directly or indirectly by the Volkswagen group or even some other car manufacturer.
One interesting fact about the 2015 Audi TT is that the car is available with a 2 litre TDI diesel motor that has the capability of churning out 184 PS of max power output and 380 Nm of peak torque. It is good to mention at this point that this diesel mill has already proven its worth in the Indian auto industry, and it could always make for a good option to power the TT line-up for the Indian market. The 2015 Audi TT also comes in a petrol version and these petrol variants get their power from an equally potent 2 litre TFSI petrol engine. This petrol mill is offered in two states of tune, one that offers a max power output of 230 PS and the other motor offers a massive 310PS.
The all new 2015 Audi TT is an overall improved car with a comprehensive makeover. The third generation model of the Audi TT also features a more aggressive design language, apart from great power, performance and better ride and handling. The new 2015 Audi TT also ensures better performance and safety with its new improved lighter yet sturdier chassis.
When the company was asked about the car’s launch in the country, Audi India said that there are no plans for the TT coming to India for the next couple of months at least. Well, in this statement there is a hint that the company is contemplating the new-generation TT’s launch in India, which might happen early next year.
