The two-seat interior envelops the driver of the new TT Roadster* and the new TTS Roadster* like a tailored suit. With its high belt line, it comes across as intimate and protective, particularly with the top closed, but never restrictive.
The newly developed sport seats with the integrated head restraints are mounted even lower than in the previous model, and also weigh 5 kilograms (11.0 lb) less. Options include power-adjustable lumbar supports (standard on the TTS Roadster), heated seats and a center armrest. Upon request (standard on the TTS Roadster), Audi offers the slim S sport seats with strongly contoured side bolsters and adjustable seat height. The S sport seats optionally feature an electric mimic diagram along with pneumatic adjustment of the side bolsters.
Modern, smart, clean: the interior design
The design of the interior makes the puristic, modern character of the new TT Roadster and TTS Roadster tangible. Emphasized horizontals convey the impression of generous width. The individual volumes are clearly separated; their surfaces taut and clean; the lines are light and almost seem to float. The taut arcs of the armrests in the door trims correspond with the center tunnel console, which in classic TT style supports the calves.
When viewed from above, the instrument panel resembles the wing of an aircraft. Its middle zone is strongly inclined toward the driver. The round air vents – another TT characteristic – are reminiscent of jet engines. They house all of the air conditioning controls. The controls for the heated seats, temperature, recirculation mode, air flow distribution and air flow strength are located on their axes. With the optional deluxe automatic air conditioning, small displays show the selected settings. The highly precision-manufactured air vents illustrate the demanding requirements that Audi has for the function, design and workmanship of the entire interior.
Center of attention: the driver
The elimination of the traditional air conditioning control unit gave the Audi designers the freedom to implement the instrument panel as part of a slim, elegant architecture. The choice of the Audi virtual cockpit had a similar effect; it assumes the function of the central MMI monitor. The interior of the new Audi TT is entirely focused on the driver, with all of the controls arranged around him.
The three-spoke sport steering wheels have also been redesigned. Their rim is flattened at the bottom, and the broad, open spokes are in aluminum look. In the TTS, the characteristic double seam adorns the rim. There are also differences between the multifunction buttons – four are standard; the plus version (standard on the TTS Roadster) includes 14 buttons and rollers.
New colors and materials: color & trim
The Audi designers also created a new color palette for the interior. The three colors black, rock gray and palomino brown are available for the TT Roadster. The colors black or rotor gray with contrasting stitching are available with the S line sport package and TTS Roadster; express red is available exclusively for the TTS Roadster. In the top model, the surface of the instrument panel features an innovative laser texture, whose honeycomb-like, slightly raised structure comes across as both technological and sporty.
Customers can choose between the standard fine paint finish, metal gray and aluminum (standard on the TTS Roadster and with the S line sport package) in multiple variants for the inlays on the console, the center tunnel and the door pull handles. Individually selectable color accents can be set in additional areas of the interior: on the clasps of the S sport seats, the flanks of the center console and the inner rings of the air vents (standard on the TTS Roadster).
Carefully coordinated: the Audi design selection admiral blue
Particularly discerning customers will find many additional customization options. For the seats, these include covers in Alcantara/leather (standard on the TTS Roadster) and fine Nappa leather specially treated to prevent overheating in the sun, plus two leather packages. The S sport seats are covered in luxurious fine Nappa leather; the center sections feature a diamond pattern. The Audi design selection admiral blue combines coordinated leather colors, alternating contrasting stitching, inlays of dark aluminum, color interior elements and special woven floor mats.
Another alternative is the S line sport package, which immerses the interior entirely in black – or most recently with rotor gray appointments. Its design highlights are the cloth-leather seat upholstery with embossed S logo, extended aluminum look with stainless steel pedals and footrest, the aluminum entry sills with S line logos and the specially designed steering wheel.
