The GT-R's ride can be stiff and bone jarring, but some testers think the ride is class competitive when the adjustable suspension is set in "comfort" mode.
And the interior boasts the exact same understated, high-tech feel as the exterior.
However, all that really matters is the usable stuff. The pedals, steering wheel, flappy-paddles, seats and handbrake are all up to supercar snuff. Especially that burly handbrake.
Snug sport bucket seats and a high center console envelop the driver and front passenger, and the rear seats, though dinky, are good enough for kids on short trips.
Nissan fits U.S.-market GT-Rs with extra-wide front buckets of perforated leather and anti-slip fabric that support and comfort.
Car and Driver
Among supercars and exotics, the 2013 Nissan GT-R has a rare measure of practicality thrown in. That's not to say it's quite a touring coupe, but it's one that can fit more than two people and a weekend bag.
The key 'oddity' (among supercars) in the GT-R is that it has an actual pair of rear seats--and discernible leg room to go with them. They're more usable than the really small buckets you get in a 911, and more usable than those in any other car that's nearly as fast.
In front, you'll find wide, comfortable sport seats that are ample, supportive, and up in Corvette territory. They're power-adjustable and wear perforated leather; and getting in and out is remarkably easy for this kind of car.
The rest of the interior is stark and functional, and nothing especially luxurious or hand-crafted. There aren't any machine-turned metal trim pieces, no wood to relieve the cockpit's drabness, but there is carbon-fiber trim and some red contrast on Black Edition cars. If you consider its race-ready credentials, the interior's actually a pretty plush place.
Two kids will fit fine in back, but the sloping roof is what limits adult space in back even more than the lack of leg room. Compared to the likes of the Audi R8, the 458 Italia, the Bugatti Veyron--where there's only a token gesture--it's usable space, however.
There's no special packing required, either. The GT-R also has a trunk that will swallow a suit bag and a roll-aboard, and Nissan hasn't opted to deny you cupholders. Yet don't get yourself too convinced that the GT-R isn't a peaky supercar; there's not much effort here to quell harshness from the road and driveline, and you'll need a lot of volume from that decent Bose audio system.
The interior of the 2013 Nissan GT-R is unremarkable compared to expensive high-performance coupes; but it's way more practical than the exotics.
