Hello,

I've seen pics of the backseat where there's a center console, and pics without a center console so you can fit 3 people in an emergency.

I'm awaiting delivery on a 09 2.0TSFI, what will my backseat look like?

Thanks

The center console is in all S5s and U.S. A5s.

So, if you are in Europe as the engine suggests, you will not have a center console in the backseat. (Although there may be more market to market variances internationally, it is difficult to say for sure since these things are usually in a flux...)

There won't be three safety belts back there, though.

I have squeezed 3 adults in the back before a couple of times for short journeys. Not very comfortable by all accounts and, as loc says, there is no seatbelt in the centre, so also illegal ( in the UK at least ).

It is absolutely 100% illegal to put 3 in the back of any car with only 2 belts, so my PC tells me. Car could get crushed if caught??!!! ;-)

Thanks everyone for your help. So there's no option code to choose a backseat without the center console?

I think its more comfortable to sit in the back without that center console breaking up the back "love seat"

Here, the cops don't care if you have 2 or 3 people in the back. And its nice to be able to put 3 in the back for emergencies.

Thanks again

Lol, no it won't get crushed. No seatbelt is normally a £30 fine. But yea, it is illegal to have 3 passengers in the back.

Most traffic cops wont know that the a5/s5 only meant to carry two in the back. But if you crash it's g'night folks.
