2015 Audi TT Interior Revealed At 2014 CES

#Audi, #TT

Audi used this week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas to reveal the interior design of the upcoming 2015 Audi TT sports car. The automaker previously confirmed it will launch the new, third-generation TT later this year.

The most dramatic point of departure for the 2015 Audi TT interior is that the car lacks a central infotainment screen. Audi's MMI interface instead displays maps, audio information, and more in the fully-digital color instrument cluster. The 12.3-inch screen has two modes: in Classic, it prominently shows a digital speedometer and tachometer, while in Infotainment mode, those gauges are smaller so the driver can more easily see a navigation map or other controls. Although there is a large rotary controller on the center console, Audi says that the MMI's functions can all also be manipulated from the buttons on the flat-bottom steering wheel.

Because it lacks a screen, the center stack of the 2015 Audi TT can be thinner, and Audi has taken advantage of the cleaner design to integrate the climate control buttons into the circular, turbine-inspired air vents. Buttons at the center of the vents allow the driver and passenger to change the temperature and strength of the air flow, with small displays in the vents showing the selected mode or temperature. A small row of buttons below the trio of center-stack air vents controls secondary functions like the hazard lights and parking sensors.

"With the new Audi TT, the driver will be able to experience the technology to an even greater extent -- just as would be expected from a genuine sports car," Audi board member Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg said in a statement.

Other details for the cabin of the 2015 Audi TT include chrome trim for the center console, and new sport seats with prominent bolsters.

The 2015 Audi TT will launch later this year upon the same "MQB" flexible chassis that was used for the new Audi A3 and Volkswagen Golf/GTI. Based on earlier spy photos, we expect the new sports car will be longer, lower, and wider than before. Engines choices will reportedly comprise turbocharged four-cylinder engines, as well as a 2.5-liter turbocharged inline-five that could produce as much as 380 hp.

Expect more details between now and the official debut of the 2015 Audi TT.

Beyond stupid.  Pity the fool that read-ends someone I care about because they were trying read a map when they should have been watching the road.  The lawyer's line forms to the left...

Those vents are from Mercedes Benz .. Inspiration . Why would Audi approve such a design? So many other options ..I don't get it. Audi you can do way better .
Mike Raymond
Nice seats. REALLY like the large nav system.

I don't want to discount the change but I have to say I'm disappointed.  Audi you have had this look for almost 20 years please give a little more innovation insight to your interior.  Baby steps are good but take a jump once in a while geez....it paid off with the TT RS come on!!!!

Where are the flaps?
Mike Goetz
An airplane wing? Seriously? I want my dashboard to look like a skilsaw with psoriasis.
Bill Northcut
I like the flat bottom steering wheel. I wish more manufacturers used it on more models.
Al Lebo
Looks good.
Stephen Abbott
Looks gorgeous.
Adam Axell Neujahr
I'm in favor of fewer and better screens like aviation has been working towards, but analog gauges need to stay for the purists. Nothing like a delayed gauge and poor graphics on the needles to annoy me.
Richard Macintyre
clean, elegant, high quality materials, it's about time!
Alsson Mata
That is sweet!
John Ceragioli
Looks like the first truly integrated navigation screen.
Christopher James Compton
The shape is great and all, but why not mention the two-mode gauge cluster with full screen nav map? Or the HVAC controls in the round vents themselves? Rather ingenious.
