Audi RS e-tron GT – Interieur design and seating position
Interior: sporty and luxuriously comfortable
The strong focus of the interior on the driver, inspired by the monoposto idea, is a characteristic of sporty Audi models and the e-tron GT in particular. The central dashboard is tilted slightly to the left, and the pronounced three-dimensional instrument panel looks light and lean. Its upper section is drawn away from the driver in a large, elegant arc. The display of the Audi virtual cockpit plus stands freely in this space, while the MMI touch monitor is surrounded by a black piano finish bezel that seems to float above the instrument panel. If the ambient lighting package plus is on board (standard in the RS model), it features a lasered and backlit “e-tron” badge in the right-hand section.
A strong contour separates the upper section of the instrument panel from the lower section, which contains the control panel of the standard three-zone automatic air conditioning system. The flat lateral air vents have a decidedly technical look and underline the width of the interior, with aluminum brackets surrounding their ends. A long arc below the windshield extends from one door to the other. The design of the sporty front door trims visually merges in a straight line into the fender edges of the front section.
The driver and passenger sit in a sporty low position, separated by a wide center console. The compact selector switch for the gears is located on the center tunnel console.
Its lean design emphasizes the airy sense of space and provides a highly precise haptic control experience. The rear seats offer sufficient space even for adults. The uncompromisingly high quality and processing of the materials reflects the attention to detail with which Audi develops and builds cars.
