Operation is intuitive—as is the case in every Audi. The center console is inclined slightly towards the driver. It integrates the air conditioning system (which is available as standard) or the optional automatic air conditioning system. The optional MMI touchscreen is available in two versions, and fits seamlessly into the black glass look of the cockpit.

The new Audi A1 Sportback is fit for the digital future. Even the basic version comes standard with a fully digital instrument cluster with a high-resolution, 10.25-inch display. Also available as standard is a multi-function steering wheel in a sporty three-spoke design. It is available in different versions—round or flattened at the bottom, with or without rocker switches.

Everything in view: Audi virtual cockpit

The optional Audi virtual cockpit presents comprehensive and diverse information directly in the driver’s field of view, from navigation arrows to the dynamic animation of the navigation map and infotainment content (including Audi connect services) to the graphics of some driver assistance systems.

Operation is via the multifunction steering wheel, with which the driver can also change the view. In the infotainment view, the focus is on a central window showing the navigation map or telephone, radio and media lists. The tachometer and speedometer are depicted as small dial instruments on the right and left. In the second, classic view, they appear about as large as analog instruments, and the center window is correspondingly smaller.

Rich in contrast: MMI touchscreens with IPS technology

The high-resolution and contrast-rich MMI touchscreens (8.8 or 10.1 inches) have been designed in in-plane switching technology (IPS). Since they are less dependent on the view angle, they are also used in high-quality devices in the consumer electronics sector.

*Fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures given in ranges depend on the tires/wheels used.
