2013 Nissan GT-R Interior

This interior review was written when the 2013 Nissan GT-R was new.

Reviewers say the interior of the 2013 GT-R is well-built, with high-quality materials and a design that imparts a sense of sportiness. One reviewer notes that opting for the Black Edition makes the interior even nicer. One critic thinks that the GT-R is very well-appointed for its price point.

  • "The interior itself is well constructed, with plenty of soft-touch materials, and most controls have a solid, positive feel. Opting for the Black Edition spices up the interior's appearance significantly." -- Edmunds
  • "More sporty than luxurious, which is certainly Nissan's intent. Materials quality is good, and the leather-padded dashboard is a nice touch." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
  • "However, if the performance value weren't enough to warrant the price tag - and I assure you it is - the leather-appointed interior exudes upscale performance. The dash is wrapped in black leather, and the light gray leather seats are soft to the touch but extremely supportive and comfortable." -- Cars.com (2012)


The GT-R has two front bucket seats and two small seats in back. Leather seats are standard, while the Black Edition model is equipped with Recaro bucket seats. Reviewers agree that the GT-R’s standard seats are comfortable. One reviewer is especially pleased at how much the seats can be adjusted. Another reviewer comments that the GT-R is easy to enter and exit, which isn’t always the case with more low-slung sports cars. Most critics agree that the back seats are very small, and only suitable for small kids.

  • "Nissan's 2013 GT-R coupe's highly stylized cockpit is cozy, yet sport seats with nine inches of travel and a tilt/telescopic steering column help to accommodate all but NBA-sized drivers." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "Entering and exiting the GT-R takes no gymnastic aptitude, a rare thing among high-performance exotics. The rear seats are much smaller and difficult to access, but they are adequate for child-size passengers." -- Edmunds
  • "Room is virtually non-existent behind even an average-size front occupant. In reality, the rear seat is more for carrying small parcels rather than people." -- Consumer Guide (2012)

Interior Features

Reviewers say the 2013 GT-R comes with easy-to-use climate and audio controls, as well as a straightforward navigation system. For 2013, a backup camera becomes standard equipment. Other standard equipment includes dual-zone climate control, a USB port, an 11-speaker Bose stereo, satellite radio, Bluetooth and navigation. The GT-R also comes standard with a display screen that shows performance information about the car.

  • "The user-friendly meters and gauges are placed at a uniform height, an important attribute that helps minimize the driver's head movement." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The basic audio and climate controls are well laid out and generally easy to use. The navigation system is similar to other Nissan and Infiniti models, and it's simple to program." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
  • "You can measure your lateral Gs, your braking percentage, your accelerator input and just about everything else. I was a little surprised it didn't measure your heart rate or sweaty palms. There's even a big stop watch on the screen controlled by a button on the steering wheel." -- The Detroit News (2010)


The 2013 GT-R has 8.8 cubic feet of trunk space. While this is less cargo capacity than rivals like the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette, which has 22 cubic feet of space, reviewers are pleased with the available trunk space in the GT-R.

  • "Trunk space is commendable for this type of car, and the deep well of storage can accommodate up to 8.8 cubic feet of cargo." -- Edmunds
  • "The lid uses non-intrusive strut-type hinges, and it opens to reveal a surprisingly large portal. Liftover is very high, however." -- Consumer Guide (2012)
  • "Rated at just 8.8 cubic feet of cargo volume, the trunk sounds small, measuring about the same as a Camaro convertible I recently tested that had one of the tightest confines I've ever seen. But, in fact, the GT-R's cargo hold seems rather cavernous and deep." -- Cars.com (2012)
