Say Hello to the 2015 Audi TT's Interior with Fully Digital Instrument Cluster

Audi has dropped photos of a cutaway of the upcoming third-generation TT’s interior that will be on display at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas held from January 6 through 10, 2014.

No doubt, the first thing that captures your eyes on the new dashboard is the fully-digital instrument cluster sporting a huge 12.3-inch TFT screen that also replaces central MMI monitor.

According to the Germans, drivers can switch between two display modes, include a “classic” view in which the speedometer and rev counter are in the foreground, and an “infotainment” mode where the virtual instruments are smaller. Audi says that there’s ample display space in the screen for functions such as the 3D navigation map.

It remains to be seen whether drivers will appreciate and get accustomed to the digital layout without being distracted from such a radically different display housed right in front of their eyes.

The overall design and feel of the dashboard isn’t all-too different from the current TT, but it does look sleeker and sharper. The changes are mostly in the details as Audi focused on applying new generation of electronics and connectivity features, as well as minimizing clutter.

For example, the controls for the air conditioning are housed in the vents themselves, while 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 settings.

Audi says it has also made changes to the MMI control on the center console and the second control unit alongside the steering wheel to simplify the process of accessing options. The company added that in the near future, drivers will be able to use “just two rather than four buttons in the area surrounding the rotary pushbutton”.

We don’t get any photos of the exterior of the car, but recent spy shots have outlined the evolutionary changes to the body that sits atop VW’s new and lighter MQB modular platform shared with many other models, including the Golf and A3. The new TT will be introduced later in 2014.
