The interior entices with its high-quality workmanship. User controls are intuitively simple – one of Audi’s classic strengths. All the buttons, switches, and levers are exactly where the driver expects them to be.
Trimmed in perforated leather, the multifunction sports steering wheel comes with a strong, flat-bottomed rim. The shift paddles come with an aluminum-look finish. The driver information system displays on request a RS-specific menu including lap timer and an oil temperature gauge. Just like the MMI monitor, the system displays an RS welcome page as the vehicle is started. The speedometer and rev counter have black scales, white dials and red needles.
The standard S front sports seats come with high bolsters, a removable seat cushion, four-way lumbar support, integrated head restraints, heating, and power adjustment. RS 5 logos are embossed in the backrests. Seat covers come in a combination of black leather and Alcantara, black or moon silver fine Nappa leather with piped seams in rock grey are available as an option. All grades of leather are pigmented to inhibit heating by sunlight. As an alternative to sports seats, Audi can also fit bucket seats for luxurious climate-controlled comfort seats with ventilation function. The Audi exclusive range includes exquisite leather packages, including bucket seats covered in diamond-quilted fine Nappa leather.
The interior of the RS 5 Cabriolet is finished in black; as an option Audi can also supply the soft top headlining in star silver. Carbon inlays are standard in the interior, but alternative inlays are also available optionally at no extra charge in matt brushed aluminum or Aluminum Race with its three-dimensional effect, black piano finish or light stainless steel mesh. The Audi exclusive range includes a selection of wood veneers as well as many other individualization options.
The surrounds on the instrument cluster and the centre console dazzle with their piano finish look; the selector lever knob on the seven-speed S tronic features RS-specific styling. The door openers taper to double, narrow bars – another hallmark RS detail. The pedals, the footrest, the air vent frames, the MMI buttons and many other controls shine with their aluminum-look finish, aluminum inserts adorn the door sill trims. RS 5 logos add striking touches in the interior.
The backrests of the two-seater rear seat bench have sporty contours and are symmetrically split. They can be unlocked by actuating levers in the trunk and drop automatically onto the seat cushions thanks to pre-tensioned springs. The large standard pass-through provides a total loading length of 1.76 meters (5.77 ft) and 750 liters (26.49 cubic ft) of stowage space. Audi offers a ski/snowboard bag as an option.
