At the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Audi unveiled the Sport Quattro Laserlight Concept but this was not the only surprise as the German manufacturer also revealed the interior of the 2015 TT. That’s right folks, this is the interior of the next-generation Audi TT that will be launched on the market in the course of the year.
As you can see from the images, the new Audi TT will be completely different as the Four-Ring brand installed a fully digital instrument cluster that displays all the information directly in front of the driver. As a result, there is no central MMI monitor. Due to this, the designers had the freedom to slim down the instrument panel architecture.
According to Audi, the interior of the next-generation Audi TT has been redesigned from the ground up and now the instrument panel resembles an airplane wing, the air nozzles have a turbine look reminiscent of jet engines. What’s more interesting is that the controls for the air conditioning are now housed in the vents – the adjustment functions for seat heating, and for the temperature, direction and strength of the flow of air are located in their axes, with small displays indicating the chosen setting. Beneath the central air nozzles we find the switches for the hazard warning light and the secondary functions that are centrally positioned and easily accessible.
The Audi virtual cockpit features a 12.3-inch TFT monitor and promises to set new standards as drivers can switch between two display modes. The classic view shoes the speedometer and rev counter, while in the infotainment mode we find functions such as the navigation map. As you can see, all the elements of the new Audi TT operating concept are focused on the drivers.
The buttons and the controls found on the flat-bottomed new multifunction steering wheel allow drivers to control all the functions including the ultra-modern infotainment system. Other innovations in the Audi TT include the S sport seats with their significantly curved side bolsters, the integrated headrests and the low seating position typical of a sports car. The side bolsters of the S sport seats can be adjusted pneumatically.
