The Audi R8 is surprisingly practical, considering its emphasis on style and performance.
Step into the R8, but do it carefully. This sports car sits low, and the roof and long doors don't make it as easy as any other Audi. Once inside, almost any driver can find a comfortable seating position. The seats are well-bolstered and supportive, not intrusive. The steering wheel telescopes and tilts. It's accommodating in a way few supercars are.
The interior is otherwise business-like, with reserved lines, high-quality materials, and well-finished details. Choose the standard finishes and it's simple and clean; opt into some of the wilder choices and the R8 gets downright indulgent.
It does have some lapses in its logical operation. Audi uses a scrolling wheel to control some audio and phone and navigation functions--and that wheel scrolls in the opposite of the expected direction. The rest of the controls are clearly marked, the displays are bright and high-definition.
Cargo room is slighted for the shape and the hardware. A small cargo area ahead of the passengers can hold a few soft-side bags, while a cargo shelf behind the seats can maybe stash a work bag.
