There’s no mistaking an Audi TT for anything else. In common with iconic models like the Porsche 911 and MINI, the TT’s unique shape has evolved yet remained instantly recognisable.

The third-generation car has an almost identical length to the out-going version, but with a wheelbase that’s grown by 37mm, it has shorter overhangs and tauter looking proportions. At the front the single-frame grille, tapered bonnet lines and razor sharp headlights give a hint of the forthcoming second-generation Audi R8.
However, with rounded wheelarches, curved windscreen pillars, a bold shoulder line and a sloping rear tailgate, all the unmistakable TT styling cues are there to see. Sport models get 18-inch wheels as standard, and come with Xenon headlamps and LED running lights, while S line versions get a sportier look with 19-inch wheels, deeper side sills, unique bumpers and a gloss black grille.
Step up to the TTS and all the usual fast Audi styling treatment is on show. The famous aluminium-look mirror housings, unique bumper treatment and a rear diffuser mark it out, while the chrome grille slats give the nose a distinctive appearance. Like S line models, the LED headlights are standard.
