The taut exterior design of the new TT RS models is continued into the interior. The cockpit with its slim instrument panel has clean lines and is clearly laid out. The wide center console is inclined toward the driver. Particularly striking are the round air vents, which occupy a central position in the instrument panel and house the controls for the deluxe automatic air conditioning. These include the controls for the heated seats, temperature, recirculation mode, air flow distribution and air flow strength. Small displays in the center of the air vents show the settings chosen.
The driver and front passenger sit in low-mounted RS sport seats. These are particularly lightweight, have integrated head restraints and strongly contoured seat side bolsters (with optional pneumatic adjustment). The Alcantara upholstery features a diamond pattern. Embossed RS logos decorate the backrests. The RS-specific seat upholstery in V-perforated fine Nappa leather, also in diamond pattern, is even more stylish. It is available in four color combinations: Black/gray, black/red, Murillo brown/gray, palomino brown/gray.
The surface of the instrument panel is softly backed with foam and features a honeycomb, slightly raised structure. It comes across as both technical and sporty. The recessed polygons are created by removing two-tenths of a millimeter of the surface with a laser in multiple steps. Each individual honeycomb is precisely aligned with the design edges of the dashboard to create a clear and linear pattern. Inlays are in Aluminum Race and optionally in carbon. RS design packages in red and gray set color accents in the interior, including on the air vents, seat belts and floor mats with the RS logo. Various leather packages that additionally upgrade elements of the interior complete the range.
The new Audi TT RS is a sports car with a high level of everyday usability. In the case of the 2+2 seater Coupé, the luggage compartment under the long rear hatch offers a basic capacity of 305 liters (10.8 cu ft), which can be increased to 712 liters (25.1 cu ft) by folding down the rear seat backs. The Roadster provides 280 liters (9.9 cu ft) of luggage capacity. A pass-through is integrated into its rear wall.
