2013 Audi TT Interior
This interior review was written when the 2013 Audi TT was new.
Reviewers agree that the 2013 Audi TT has an elegant, well-built interior that’s trimmed in premium materials. Some test drivers also appreciate the TT’s functional dash layout and flat-bottomed steering wheel, which enhance its athletic demeanor.
- "As we've come to expect from all Audi models, the 2013 TT features a tastefully designed, well-assembled interior that makes use of genuine top-notch materials." -- Edmunds
- "As a 4-passenger Coupe or 2-seat Roadster, the 2013 Audi TT offers a beautifully built and elegantly designed cabin. The flat-bottomed steering wheel and driver-friendly dashboard project a sporty feel." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "TT's interior materials are sporty, yet rich feeling and very attractive." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
- "The dials and the flat-bottomed steering do a good job of conveying a sense of athleticism, and the seats fit me perfectly." -- AutoWeek (2012)
The 2013 TT is available as a four-seat coupe or a two-seat roadster. Auto writers agree that the TT offers front seats that are supportive and comfortable, as well as a good amount of headroom. Still, some test drivers note that the TT Coupe’s back seat only offers enough space for small children. The TT comes standard with 10-way power-adjustable sport seats covered in Alcantara and leather upholstery. Optional features include heated front seats and premium leather upholstery.
- "Aside from colors/inserts and optional upholstery upgrades, the standard leather front seats are the same from base TT up to the top-shelf TT RS, and they're both comfortable and supportive." -- Edmunds
- "The TT Coupe's rear seat is best suited for small children or professional contortionists. …" -- Kelley Blue Book
- "The seats are comfortable and supportive. The TT's flat-bottom steering wheel allows more room for the driver's legs. Entry and exit, though still labor intensive, aren't as bad as in some rivals." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
- "Once you've collected your wits after braining yourself getting into the TT, you'll find more headroom than you'd expect (swelling notwithstanding). At 6 feet tall, I'm plenty comfortable in there." -- Cars.com (2008)
The 2013 Audi TT comes standard with automatic climate control, automatic windshield wipers and headlights, a HomeLink universal garage door opener, Bluetooth and a nine-speaker stereo with satellite radio. Optional features include a Bose sound system, navigation, an iPod interface and parking sensors.
Critics appreciate the TT’s clear gauges, and most write that the bulk of the TT’s controls are user-friendly. However, they also say that the optional navigation system can be difficult to use.
- "Most controls are straightforward and within easy reach, but the navigation system's dash-mounted controller placement isn't ideal, nor is its operation as intuitive as those from other manufacturers." -- Edmunds
- "Most of the TT's controls are straightforward and intuitive, though the optional navigation system's control dial is mounted on the dash, which feels ergonomically off target." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "The gauges are legible. With navigation, audio controls are integrated into, and therefore complicated by, Audi's Multi Media Interface (MMI) -- a system that requires considerable time to master." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
The TT Coupe provides 13.1 cubic feet of cargo space, which can be expanded to 24.7 cubic feet by folding the back seats forward. TT Roadsters have 8.8 cubic feet of trunk space, as well as a pass-through for long, narrow items. Most reviewers say that both models offer a good amount of space for a luxury sports car, though one reviewer writes that the TT doesn’t have much interior storage for small items.
- "The coupe's rear seats, however, are better suited to trunk overflow than accommodating actual people. Folding them flat expands the trunk's ample 13-cubic-foot capacity to a capacious 24 cubes." -- Edmunds
- "The TT Coupe's rear seat is best suited for small children or professional contortionists, but it folds flat for extra luggage room and combines with the hatchback design to provide a high level of practicality." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Hatch storage area is shallow, but usefully long and wide, and nicely finished. The rear seat backs fold down on Coupes. Cabin storage is limited." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
- "Perhaps I was most surprised at how usable this car proved to be.... I don't expect trunks on roadsters to be huge (indeed, my backpack could be described as ‘fitted luggage’), but the TTS still offered a fair amount of cargo room and nifty pouches to store my odds and ends." -- Automobile Magazine (2009 TTS)
