New photographs of Audi crossover concept car show clues to looks of next Audi TT

Pictures of a new Audi crossover concept have been leaked ahead of the car's unveil at the Detroit Motor Show next week.

The sporty three-door crossover is said to preview the look of future Audi sportscars, including the next Audi TT, which is due later on in 2014 or early in 2015.

New Audi TT release date and rumours

While the raised ride height and plastic cladding suggest a new Audi SUV, the pumped up wheelarches, bold crease running the length of the flanks and even the shape of the rear lights are all a development of those found on the current TT – although Audi’s new, more angular nose and horizontally slatted grille help to keep the styling modern.

An e-tron badge on the flanks hints that there’s a plug-in hybrid powertrain under the skin, although there are no official details on the powertrain just yet, while quattro badging on the lower lip of the front grille confirms a four-wheel drive transmission.
