Rather surprisingly, Audi decided to give us a sneak preview of the next-generation TT sports car at the 2014 CES event in Las Vegas, which is a trade show for electronics and gadgets. To be honest, they didn’t reveal the car itself, only its cockpit. But that’s half of the car, isn’t it!
The first thing you notice about the 2015 Audi TT interior is how driver-focused it is. The passenger in this car is going to get bored of their mind, because all they will see the entire time is a black plastic dashboard and some turbine-shaped air vents. The air vents are actually rather cool, as they have the air con controls built into them.
That is because the designers have eliminated the need for a center console screen by replacing the instrument binnacle in front of the driver with a large 12.3-inch MMI (Multi Media Interface) screen. This gives the TT’s dashboard a neat and clean look. But we have to say it is also very boring to look at.
Naturally, this screen is customizable by the driver and he or she can either have traditional-looking dials – digitally rendered, of course – or smaller dials with a large portion in the middle that can be used for navigation, or rear-view camera, or vehicle settings, stuff like that.
The 2015 Audi TT also features new sports seats with curved side bolsters and a low seating position to give a more sporty feel.
