Audi fits TT 12.3-inch screen in more models
After receiving positive feedback about the new TT's uncluttered and clean interior, Audi has announced that it will put its 12.3-inch screen in four other models by next year. The TT was the first to feature the newly-designed interior that saw the old screen replaced by the digital gauge cluster, which was initially revealed at the motor show in Geneva.
Audi introduced the new system at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES). It uses a 12.3-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) display, similar to that used in the Cadillac XTS and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The difference with the Audi screen is that it can display three-dimensional maps.
The imposing 12.3-inch screen will be used in four other Audi models. These include the R8, where it will be fitted as standard, and the A4 and Q7, where it will be an optional extra.
The new TFT 12.3-inch screen will give the driver access to the trip computer, instrumentation and warning lights; in addition, the screen will have information about infotainment. There are three display modes, which are changed by using a button located on the steering wheel: normal mode, infotainment mode and sport mode.
