As you'd expect given the considerable price tag, the TT RS comes well equipped. Standard kit includes 18-inch alloy wheels, sports suspension, CD stereo with auxiliary socket, heated leather sports seats, high performance brakes, traction and stability control, xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights, an electronic differential lock, electronic climate control, split folding rear seat (coupe only), electrically adjustable heated door mirrors, electric windows and twin exhaust pipes.
It also has a fixed rear spoiler, although this can be changed to the standard speed dependant spoiler for no extra charge. As with any Audi, there are a host of optional extras including bucket seats, a sports exhaust, sat nav and the Audi magnetic ride system.
The basic equipment list includes equipment that is standard across all versions of the Audi TT RS (09-14).

The TT hasn't been crash tested by Euro NCAP, but judging by Audi's other cars it would likely perform very well. The RS comes with front and side airbags, an Isofix child seat mount on the front passenger seat, ESP stability control which can correct the cars line during a skid, high performance brakes and roll over protection hoops in the roadster.
There's also a Thatcham Category 1 alarm and a tyre pressure monitoring system.
While the coupe version may have four seats compared to just two in the roadster, they're really not useable for adult passengers. Instead they're more likely to come in handy as extra luggage space. There's good boot space in the coupe with 290 litres, more than a Mercedes SLK or Nissan 370Z, while the roadster offers a decent 250 litres with the roof up.
Dropping the roof is a doddle as there are no catches or handles to release, just one button which retracts it in a mere 12 seconds. There's not a great deal of storage up front, but the roadster does have some useful cubby holes including one behind each of the seats.
