Steering wheels

Where your journey takes you is in your hands. For this reason, all available steering wheels feature a high-grip rim in smooth-finish leather and offer outstanding ergonomics. The reach from the steering wheel to the gear lever is short for sporty and fast gear changes.

In combination with the optional fully electric seats, the steering wheel is also electrically adjustable and for even more convenience, a memory function is included.

Sport steering wheel

The three-spoke sports steering wheel is fitted as standard and offers up to 1.18 in. of adjustment for both height and reach. The steering wheel rim is upholstered in smooth-finish leather. In conjunction with optional PDK, the steering wheel features two ergonomic switches. One press with the thumb and PDK shifts up. One pull with the index finger and PDK shifts down. Either the right or left hand can be used.

With the optional Sport Chrono Package and PDK, there is an additional display above the airbag module. It tells you whether the SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Launch Control functions are activated.

The optional multifunction steering wheel provides extra operating comfort with four function buttons and two thumbwheels for convenient operation of many audio, telephone and navigation functions.

SportDesign steering wheel

Visually, the optional SportDesign steering wheel is distinguished by its stylish twin-spoke design. It’s in safe hands, even on the sportiest of drives.

In conjunction with PDK, the steering wheel features two gearshift paddles. Made from a strong alloy, they are ergonomically located behind the right and left steering wheel spokes. Pull the right-hand paddle and PDK shifts up. Pull the left-hand paddle and PDK shifts down.

When combined with the optional Sport Chrono Package and PDK, the steering wheel has an additional display in the left- and right-hand spokes to indicate whether the SPORT, SPORT PLUS and Launch Control functions are activated.

Steering wheel heating

For extra comfort on those cold days, a heating function is available as an option for the sports steering wheel and the multifunction steering wheel. The heating is activated by a separate control button on the steering wheel and the rim is warmed to a pleasant temperature. Cold weather should never be a reason to prevent you from enjoying your open-top driving experience.
