Introduced first in 1998, the Audi TT became an instant hit among the car design connoisseurs and has earned the honour of being a modern classic during the course of its three generation old history. Maintaining its compact, distinguished and fresh new take on design in the rather serious world of Audi cars, the TT has succeeded in becoming one of the most popular templates of a lightweight sports car in the modern era.



In its latest avatar, the TT gets underpinned by VW group’s MQB architecture which also works underneath cars such as the VW Golf, Audi A3 and Skoda Octavia. The MQB platform essentially offers a FWD layout with the flexibility of being able to adopt a four-wheel drive system.

The new TT is the most compact car within the VW group to employ the platform.

Spunkier, more chiselled than ever, and boasting an interior which both users and critics have been raving about, the TT has been re-imagined to be more desirable and enjoyable than ever in its newest iteration. Here’s our detailed review.

Design and style


In a world where every successive model is getting longer and wider, the TT has managed to shrink in size, even with an extension in its wheelbase by 37mm. The new TT is very marginally shorter and narrower than the model it replaces, though it doesn’t look like it. Advanced aluminium and steel construction has shaved off about 50 kg from the car’s weight, making it lighter, nimbler and more efficient too.

In its latest form, the TT stands true to its original shape and proportions, and there is no mistaking it for anything else. It’s as distinctive in form as say a 911, or a Mini, which is a daunting feat for a car with a much shorter history. While the original TT was quite curvy and more bean-shaped, the MY 2015 car is more rakish, sculpted and sharply styled than any of its predecessors.

Up front, the new TT gets a hexagonal Audi single frame grille with pronounced corners and glossy plastic innards featuring seven horizontal and six vertical stripes. The grille is flanked by aggressively styled, angular air scoops with a honeycomb mesh within. The front bumper also features a wide, though narrow slit beneath the grille for enhanced aggressiveness and a visually wider, squatter stance.

The bonnet lip is angled sharply, with deliberately pronounced, gapped shut-lines to underline what has always been a TT signature. The small surface between the grille and the edgy headlamps almost forms a mini air-scoop under the bonnet’s shut line. The razor sharp headlights are relentlessly angular, feature sharply styled DRLs, and share styling cues with the upcoming second generation R8.



On the sides, flared wheel arches and the signature gap between the front fender and the bonnet is present as ever to lend the TT its most unmistakable styling cue. The shut-line curves around the fender as it always has in the past. The bonnet-line extends as a pronounced, tight crease all the way back into the car’s tail-lamps.

Other notable elements on the sides include the 18 inch 10 spoke wheels, the aircraft style, TT embossed, aluminium finish fuel tank cap and that forcefully dropping coupe roofline. The area under the door sills extends out and gets a bulge towards the rear for that added dash of sportiness.

At the rear, the low, wide and squat stance of the car underlines its sporty character. The LED tail lamps, emulating the sharply styled theme of the headlamps are joined by an array of LED brake lights spanning the width of the boot-lid. The Audi emblem is flanked by TT lettering on the left and 45TFSI quattro badging on the right. Under the rear bumper, a pronounced, blacked out surface housing twin, round exhausts signifies the car’s performance oriented personality. Then there are diffusers to let the trailing traffic know the pedigree of the car ahead.



The TT in its newest iteration has not lost even an ounce of its signature disposition. Staying true to its template, the new TT has evolved into the most muscular, chiselled and aggressive version of the sports car to date.

Engine, performance & driving dynamics

The 2.0 TFSI engine on the TT is designed as a dual character mill, meant to offer everyday usability while also packing a punch. Thanks to its high compression ratio and efficient combustion, the engine really delivers not just on performance and usability parameters, but is highly fuel efficient too. During our test run of nearly 300 km, we saw an average efficiency of nearly 10kmpl, even with some spirited driving. Now that’s an impressive number in the real world for a car that boasts 227 bhp (4500 rpm) of power, 370 Nm of torque (1600 rpm), sprints to 100 from a standstill in 5.3 seconds and is capable of breaching the 250 km/h mark. And just in case you thought that wasn’t enough, the new TT also produces 11 percent less emissions than the version it replaces.

Lighter, faster and more involving than ever, the new TT is the first model carrying the nameplate that truly has the performance to match its personality. Transmission is taken care of by a 6-speed dual clutch S-Tronic automatic, which is quick and efficient as ever and plays perfect foil to that rev happy, torquey, turbo charged engine. All that power is laid down onto the tar via a revised Quattro AWD, offering great levels of all-weather grip, fantastic agility and loads of smiles, with some help from that short wheelbase.

The engine loves being revved, and offers a heady discharge of torque from lower down the rev range to make the new TT both tractable at low revs and exciting once you decide to bury the pedal. The engine is incredibly smooth with a muffled sporty tone till mid revs, after which it gets enjoyably loud, particularly in Dynamic mode where the engine sound is amplified and is clearly audible inside the cabin. At no point does the 2.0 litre four cylinder engine resist being taken all the way up to its 6750 rpm redline.
Mercedes-Benz India launched the ultra luxurious Maybach twins in India today. While the flagship Mercedes-Maybach S600 will be imported to India as a CBU, the Mercedes-Maybach S500 will be locally assembled here in Pune. Prices for the S600 start at INR 2.67 Crore, while the S500 can be had at INR 1.67 Crore; both prices ex-showroom Pune.

Mercedes-Benz resurrected the Maybach moniker in 2015, with the formation of a a new Mercedes-Maybach sub-brand. The last resurrection of the Maybach brand didn’t go too well, as the W221 S-Class based Maybach 57 and 62 twins didn’t really catch the fancy of plutocrats around the globe. This time however, things have been spruced up significantly to satisfy plutocratic whims.


Still based on a S-Class, but this time on the opulent and conquering W222 generation, the new Maybach is available in two sizes; large and extra large, along with a couple of engine options. The XL size is called the Pullman, a 21.5 feet long limousine that Hitler would have proud of.

The Maybach we’re getting is the “regular” one, still measuring 5453 mm long, along with 3365 mm, wheelbase, noticeably longer than even the long wheelbase, “regular” S-Class saloon. Billed as the “world’s quietest production saloon car,” Mercedes says the cars boast impressive “aeroacoustics,” with extensive wind-tunnel tests and special seals and insulation used to reduce wind noise inside the car as much as possible.

Unique to the Mercedes-Maybach are features like nappa leather upholstered interiors, an intelligent climate control system which ionizes, adds fragrance and efficiently filters the air inside, and executive class, sliding loungers with handcrafted champagne flutes at the back. The rear seats also imbibe a ‘Hot Stone Massage’ feature, with a folding table and standard extended leg support for both rear passengers or the rear seat entertainment system.

Even the panoramic sunroof is special – the glass can be switched to light or dark at the touch of a button and thus creating a special interior ambience. Aural adulation comes courtesy a 1540 watt Burmester 3D surround system with 24 speakers, while the mood cab be swayed by the seven colour ambient lighting feature. Further personalization involves the designo package, which offers a raft of luxury interior trim/colour and exterior colour options, along with a choice of three, 19″ alloy wheel designs.

The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 additionally features an intelligent ‘MAGIC BODY CONTROL’ suspension, head-up display, front seat massagers for driver and co-driver, and an anti-theft protection package to name a few. Safety and assistance systems in Mercedes-Maybach S-Class includes 12 air-bags, Night Vision Assist Plus, a 360 degree camera, Active Parking Assist, LED headlamps, Crosswind Assist, and Tyre Pressure Monitoring System to name a few. However, the most unique safety feature is the rear seat beltbags and cushion bags. The beltbag is an inflatable seat belt strap that reduces the load on the ribcage in a front impact and is thus able to reduce the risk of injury to passengers in the rear.

The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 will be powered by a 5980cc V12 biturbo engine that would generate an output of 530 hp and maximum torque of 830 Nm. The Mercedes-Maybach S 600 completes the sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 5.0 seconds, while the top speed is 155 mph (electronically limited).
