With its yellow metal shining like liquid gold, this wonder by Audi, also known as TT Offroad concept, is what the future of TT looks like. Created with extreme precision, this SUV sits on a 2.0 liter turbocharged FSI engine and is capable of producing 292bhp and 380Nm torque. The fuel efficiency has been improved by integrating the exhaust manifold inside the cylinder head with indirect injection enhancing the direct injection. It is also equipped with a plug in hybrid system that delivers a total of 408 hp and is capable of giving 123.8 miles per gallon.
A battery has been mounted on the rear axle that can propel the car for up to 50kms on electric charge, and this can be recharged by plugging it into the Audi wall box. This vehicle also premiers the wireless charge station where the car needs to just drive on to a plate that will draw the electricity from the floor, invert the current and then transfer it into the car. This technology is claimed to be 90% efficient and is not affected by weather conditions.
The TT is capable of reaching from 0-100kph in 5.2 seconds and with the top speed of 250kph. It can also be accelerated to the top speed of 130kph if driver entirely on the rear axle electric motor. The TT Offroad from Audi flashes sophisticated TFT display along with 3D display inside the car and has borrowed some of its elements from the Q series.

The EV model runs the car on electric mode only; hybrid uses the three drives as and when required; and the sport model runs with power sent to all the four wheels. The ground clearance for TT Offroad is decent and is ideal for a little off-road experience. The storage area inside the car is enormous with a high quality infotainment system and speakers in the head restraints, plus the matrix LED lights are a show stealer – check out this quiz and see if you know your Audi from your BMW.
