2014 Audi R8 Comfort & Quality

8.0
Comfort & Quality
Despite its obvious emphasis on performance and style, the 2014 Audi R8 has a surprisingly practical side.

Getting in and out isn't the easiest, owing to the R8's performance-focused low ride height and low roof, but it's not that hard in comparison to the rest of the supercar class, and once you're in the cabin, it's a comfortable space. Supportive, well-bolstered but not intrusive seats allow long journeys without pain or hot spots, and there's enough leg, shoulder, and head room even for taller or wider occupants.

Unlike many sports cars, even among the upper tiers, the Audi R8's steering wheel both tilts and telescopes, helping a wider range of body types to achieve a proper driving position.

Comfortable, well-built, and easy-to-use, the cabin of the Audi R8 makes it useful for more than red carpet arrivals.

Controls, displays, and instruments are all clearly marked and simple in their use, though some might notice the backward-scrolling wheel to control the MMI interface, an Audi quirk. Less quirky--in fact, downright business-like, is the rest of the interior, with quality materials, reserved designs, and well-finished details that can be left clean and simple, or customized to your wildest fantasies through the brand's personalization services.

Cargo space isn't abundant, with only a small area (enough for a couple of smallish soft-sided bags) under the front "hood" panel, and an available cargo shelf that substitutes for the rear seats.
