Today we’ll have a focus about the spectacular infotainment system of this car Now, we get two screens The first one in front of me, 12.3” The second one looks like a TV, is a 15” display The fantastic thing is that when they’re off, they look like one giant unique display Let’s turn them on Nice It has millions of functions As you can see you don’t get physical buttons in this car for, like, A/C and radio You only get a rotor for the volume and the On/Off infotainment button The air vents are below the screen And the A/C buttons are on the lower part of the touchscreen Right now we’ll have A/C on because it’s damn hot today Let’s discover it, let’s press the function, let’s say, of the temperature We can choose it right here We even get the type of A/C: Delicate, Medium and Intense Sorry for the noise Let’s get it lower Clicking on the various parts, for example, on Clima There are options for the windshield Other options for the direction of the air, towards the feet or the body Here’s a slider And you use it to increase and decrease the air flow Then we have Air Care, a system for purifying the air If purifies air from fine powders and pollen, a very useful feature for people with allergies A thing I noticed before is that, when I approach to the screen with my finger The car detects it with the proximity sensor and activates the various buttons It’s cool! The car detects it by itself! Other functions: Navi of course Let’s click on the mega map I can insert New Destinations, My Destinations I can choose among day view, night view and automatic view Of course this car has Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink Sadly we can’t show you them today, but I guess you already know them Phone, right now it’s trying to connect with Bluetooth Choosing among various devices So you can use your phone, even from the steering wheel We also have media We can choose the source: Bluetooth, USB 1, USB 2, SD and obviously the Radio Talking about USB ports, the car has four of them, two in the backseats One inside the armrest and one down here There are also a 12V socket and a wireless phone charging system A useful feature is the availability of LTE cards, so you can have access to the internet in your car Other features are about the parking
