Audi announced it will use the 12.3 inch screen, fitted on the new TT model (unveiled during the 2014 Geneva Motor Show), on four other models by 2015.
Audi’s new TT has made a very good impression with its neat, uncluttered and clean interior. Replacing the screen mounted atop the center stack was indeed a very good idea and so, the new Audi TT became the first model which features the new design digital gauge cluster.
Audi introduced the new, fully customizable gauges earlier this year at CES. The system uses a12.3 inch TFT display and although it is similar to those found in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Cadillac XTS and CTS, this one is able to display three-dimensional, full-screen maps.
The impressive 12.3-inch screen will be fitted in other four models,including the next R8 supercar, the new Q7 and the A4. But if for the R8 the screen will come as standard, for the A4 and Q7 it will be on the options list, as these models will keep in base trim the center dash mounted screen.
The new 12.3-inch TFT screen not only includes the trip computer, warning lights and all the instrumentation, but also the infotainment information. It has three modes: the normal mode, sport mode and the infotainment mode, which can be accessed from the button placed on the steering wheel.
