The most striking new feature in the interior of the RS 5 Coupé is the leather three-spoke, multifunction steering wheel. Its thick ring is covered in perforated leather and flattened at the bottom. The new buttons and rollers are now even more intuitive. The console on the center tunnel has also been reorganized. The terminal for the optional MMI navigation plus saw the number of hard keys for menu functions reduced from eight to six, and the volume control now includes a skip function for moving to the next song.
The ignition key and the steering column stalks have also been updated. Buttons can now be used to activate the optional seat heating and ventilation systems directly, and the air conditioning’s displays are illuminated in white. Audi drive select is now controlled via a single button, and a single tap of the selector lever is all it takes to switch to the S mode of the seven-speed S tronic.
The sport seats have large side bolsters, integrated headrests and embossed RS 5 logos. They are power adjustable and include a four-way lumbar support and an extendable thigh rest. They are covered with a combination of leather and Alcantara, with black or moon silver Fine Nappa leather available as an option. Audi also offers manually adjustable bucket seats and deluxe climate-controlled seats featuring a ventilation function and covered in perforated leather.
The instruments have black gauges and white lettering with distinctive scaling. The driver information system integrates a lap timer for circuit times and an oil temperature gauge. Both it and the MMI monitor display a special RS 5 welcome screen when the car is started.
The fascia at the instrument cluster and the center console are now in high-gloss black. Decorative inlays are available in carbon, Aluminum Race, Piano black finish, brushed matt aluminum or dark stainless steel mesh. Carbon fiber-reinforced polymer fascia is standard.
The color black dominates the interior, with a Moon Silver headlining available as an option. Typical of all RS vehicles, the door openers are two narrow bars. Aluminum inlays adorn the door sill trims. They, like the steering wheel, the tachometer and the gear selector lever, are decorated with RS logos.
The power window controls and the switches for the power seats are subtly framed with chrome. The pedals, the footrest, the air vents, the shift paddles on the steering wheel, the MMI buttons and other controls shine in an aluminum-look finish. The Audi exclusive program also include numerous options for further personalizing the RS 5.
