Interior, dashboard & comfort rating

4.0 out of 5

Interior quality in the e-tron GT is excellent, as you'd expect from Audi, and depending on the trim level you choose, there's the usual array of technology on hand, including a head-up display, keyless entry and go, a suite of modern driver assistance and safety systems and a Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Audi e-tron GT dashboard

The e-tron GT's dashboard design isn't too far removed from what you find in petrol and diesel-engined high-end Audis. There's a large diamond-shaped housing behind the steering wheel for the 'Virtual Cockpit' digital dials, another large screen in the upper middle of the dashboard and a stack of physical climate-control buttons just above the air vents. The lack of a large gearstick gives an uncluttered feel to things, and there are two big cup holders in the centre console between the low-set front-seat occupants.

Equipment, options & accessories

For a shade under £80,000, you can be at the wheel of the entry-level e-tron GT quattro, which Audi reckons will be the best-selling version of the car. The Vorsprung trim level we sampled breaks the £100,000 barrier, for which you get 18-way adjustable vented and massage seats, matrix LED headlights with laser-light technology, adaptive cruise control with semi-autonomous driving capability and a head-up display, as well as adaptive air suspension and a four-wheel steering system.

Then there are the three RS e-tron GT variants – the regular version, the Carbon Black and the Carbon Vorsprung, which run the gamut from £110,000 to over £130,000. As well as boosting power (as discussed in the motor, drive and performance section), they include styling enhancements that make the e-tron GT look even more sporty and aggressive than it does in standard form.

Infotainment, apps & sat nav

Audi's current in-car information and entertainment template is now well established, with a two-screen setup comprising the main 10.1-inch dashboard screen and the 12.3-inch 'Virtual Cockpit' display facing the driver from behind the steering wheel. Unlike in some rivals, the two screens don't blend together to appear as one large display stretching across the dashboard – although some may prefer this and find it less distracting on the move.

Audi's 'MMI navigation plus' suite is standard on all versions of the e-tron GT; this incorporates real-time traffic data as well as destination suggestions based on previously driven routes when it's generating sat-nav directions. A range of 'Audi connect' online services is also offered, including emergency calls; remote control of the locking system, charging and climate control; online traffic information; and Google Earth navigation.
