Audi made it clear that the new TT sports car would not remain the sole modification, and, judging from the current information, the company will mull over a sedan.
Speculations on the matter began right after the 2015 TT presentation. The brand announced that appearance of new modifications was very possible; crossover was mentioned as a likely variant. Apart from that, family car and sedan offerings are not ruled out. The rationale behind such activities probably suggests a market research done by Audi according to which sports coupe have lost their gloss and gave way to compact cars. Such data is supported by brand’s selling figures: compact A3 featured a 56,000-unit boost year-to-year and Q3 presented even a more stunning increase of almost 50% in 2013.
Prudence of Audi’s consideration is also competition-affected: if TT is turned into a compact sedan, it will fight for customers of the same focus group as CLA-Class hot novelty from Mercedes-Benz. Nevertheless, all these assumption remain unofficial while Audi is still monitoring the sales results of A3 in America.
