Audi TT review – design
The TT’s unique shape has evolved in this latest generation, yet it remains instantly recognisable
There’s no mistaking an Audi TT for anything else. In common with other iconic models like the Porsche 911 or a 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 second-generation Audi R8.
As part of a mid-cycle update, S-line, Black Edition and Vorsprung models are all fitted with some questionable new design elements on the nose, side and tail. These are clearly designed to more closely align the TT with Audi’s fussy new aesthetic developed after the third generation TT’s initial release.
