The interior of the RS 5 models** is characterized by horizontal lines and subtly drawn surfaces, which convey a generous feeling of spaciousness. On request, the panoramic glass sunroof allows more light to enter the interior. The interior is kept in black and rock gray as standard. The footrests and pedals are manufactured out of stainless steel; the inlays are made of aluminum race. Anthracite colored aluminum, high-gloss carbon, or – as a new alternative – matt carbon are optionally available. With the two RS design packages, the interior can be designed individually with red or gray contrasting stitching.

The front RS sport seats can be adjusted electrically and pneumatically in various ways with their high bolsters and thus provide optimum stability. Their center sections have a rhombus pattern; the armrests have the embossed RS logo. The series covers have a combination of leather and Alcantara; fine Nappa leather with a honeycomb pattern is available on request. Instead of RS sport seats, Audi also installs S sport seats, including ventilation.

The flattened RS multifunction sport leather steering wheel is standard as are the illuminated door sill trims with RS 5 logos. LED light guides follow the large contours of the interior in the optional contour/ambient light package in 30 colors.

The MMI touch display Center of operation

The future-oriented interior design harmonizes with the new operating concept, which focuses on the MMI touch display with a 10.1-inch screen. The large touch display stands freely in the space, is tilted slightly toward the driver, and is equipped with acoustic feedback. Its menu structure is flat like a smartphone and is organized intuitively so that the desired function can be achieved with few operation steps. The MMI search is based on free text input and returns relevant hits very rapidly. Alternatively, natural-language voice control processes many formulations from everyday speech.

While driving, the central touchscreen provides information about the temperature status of drive components, the maximum longitudinal and lateral acceleration values, as well as about tire pressure and temperature via the “RS monitor” view.

Similarly, the optional Audi virtual cockpit plus with 12.3-inch screen and full HD resolution of 1,920 x 720 pixels reflects the dynamism of the revised RS 5 models**. Via the multifunction steering wheel, the driver can switch between several views and call up further RS-specific displays, such as the current status of tire pressure, torque, output, engine oil temperature, boost pressure, and g-forces. Moreover, acceleration and lap times can be measured. The flat-bottomed, fully perforated RS sport leather steering wheel with new large aluminum shift paddles also features the “RS MODE” button, which the driver can use also to select the new Audi drive select “RS1” and “RS2” modes. This automatically opens the RS-specific displays in the Audi virtual cockpit. As a third display level, a head-up display is available on request; this projects important information – including typical RS displays, such as the shift light representation – onto the windshield.
