The instrument panel is divided into an upper and lower area: a wing profile with new, flattened round nozzles that are reminiscent of the engine nacelles of an aircraft, and an opulent decorative panel. This flows continuously from the center console into the instrument panel. Their driver orientation contributes to the sportiness: the instrument panel and central display are inclined slightly towards it by six degrees. The driver's area is marked by a high-resolution LCD screen. It stands free and appears to float in front of the wing profile and the decorative surface. This sets the driver's display apart from traditional cockpits with classic round instruments. Buyers can choose between a 10.25-inch (26.0 cm) and 12.3-inch (31.2 cm) version. The paradigm shift towards digitality is also clear with the central display: The vehicle functions can be controlled via the high-quality touchscreen. Its portrait format offers significant advantages, especially for navigation. The touchscreen also seems to float above the decorative surface. Like the instrument panel, the screen is also slightly oriented towards the driver. The central display has a screen diagonal of 9.5 inches (24.1 cm) as standard. A larger version with 11.9 inches or 30.2 cm is optionally available
