Distinctive lines, clear ergonomics and high-quality craftsmanship – the dark-toned interior of the compact RS models captivates with an atmosphere of cultivated dynamism. It welcomes the driver and passengers with illuminated door sills bearing the RS 3 logos as a standard feature.
The Sedan and Sportback are equipped at the factory with sport seats in black fine Nappa leather, with contrast stitching in gray or red creating a visual highlight. Alternatively, RS sport seats with sharply contoured side bolsters and integrated head restraints are also available. Their covers are quilted in a diamond pattern and color-perforated. In addition to black leather, the RS sport seats are also available in stylish lunar silver, thereby contrasting with the dark interior. The backrests are embossed with the RS emblem – just like those on the standard seats. The RS badge is also integrated into the steering wheel which has a flattened bottom section. The rim is covered in a combination of leather and Alcantara. As standard, it houses the multifunction buttons for controlling the infotainment system. The selector lever knob with its sporty design also wears the RS logo.
Inlays on the instrument panel and doors complete the atmosphere of sporty elegance. In the 3D-design “Optic”, they are titanium gray as standard. In order to create a glass look, multiple layers of a transparent film are imprinted and then the decorative side is oversprayed with a five-millimeter-thick (0.2 in) highly transparent plastic layer. Decorative inlays are optionally also available in carbon fiber or aluminum Race, whereby the latter variant sees the integration of a design light on the doors. The door openers are slender double bars – typical of RS models. The door trim inserts are made of Alcantara whilst the pedals and footrest are in stainless steel. Many controls as well as elements on the air vents and glove box shine in an aluminum-look finish.
As an option, the RS design package accentuates the air vents with red rings and the black seat belts with a red edge. The velour floormats then carry an RS logo. Knee pads made of Alcantara and armrests on the doors made of man-made leather – each with red contrast stitching – complement this package.
