2016 Audi A4’s virtual cockpit demonstrated – Video
Audi has uploaded a fresh promotional video for its all-new Audi A4, this time showing off the optional technologically advanced digital instrument cluster.
The Audi A4 is Audi’s best-selling model so it shouldn’t come as a big surprise their marketing department is working around the clock to make promotional content for the all-new Audi B9 generation.
A while back we witnessed the optional matrix LED headlights and now the company with the four ring logo is showing us the fancy digital instrument cluster known as the Audi Virtual Cockpit.
Already offered in other models such as the Audi TT, Q7 and R8, the digital display costs an extra €500 and replaces the analog dials with a 12.3-inch LCD monitor that has a 1,440 x 540 resolution and provides a trouble free 60 fps experience thanks to its powerful graphics processor.
Audi has promised the virtual needles are extremely accurate and the driver will have the possibility of choosing between two different modes that are options by using the “view” button mounted on the steering wheel.
In infotainment mode, there’s a large window displaying navigation map or lists with data from radio, audio and phone. When classic mode is desired, the tachometer and speedometer are displayed in just about the same size as the regular dials and are divided by a smaller central screen to mimic the analog look.
