The interior layout, fit and finish
Audi is renowned for classy, minimalist interiors that are both exquisitely finished and super-intuitive to use. The RS5 doesn’t disappoint, taking on its rivals from Alfa Romeo, BMW and Mercedes with upmarket materials everywhere you look, and a simple, user-friendly dashboard layout. Being the top model in the A5 range, it comes with soft Nappa leather with contrasting honeycomb stitching and plenty of other RS-specific interior trim.
Audi’s MMI infotainment system comes as standard and features a clear 8.3in display mounted centrally on the dashboard, controlled using a rotary dial positioned between the front seats. There are also some handy shortcut keys to take you straight to specific functions. It’s much easier to use than a touchscreen and remains one of the best infotainment systems around.
