In order to show off their new infotainment system Audi completely revealed the interior of the new A3.
It’s kinda odd revealing a car’s interior before the exterior, but if you look close, in some of the pictures from the new 7-inch display they have revealed the actual car – either intentionally or as a result of a monumental cock-up.
The three-door hatch looks pretty much like the old one, except for the new face with the unique grille and headlights, which it shares with all other new Audis.
If we get back to the interior, we see a new design which looks neat and clean, but kinda boring. Withe sliding display hidden away in the dash, there’s not much to look at here except a sea of gray with two circular air vents sticking out of it. The air con unit too has a new and very slim design.
The center console is much busier, with an AMG-style start button on the left of the gear knob, and the controls of the MMI system in the middle. A very cool feature of the car is the handwriting-recognition pad which is located on the top of the MMi knob.
The cabin is made of higher quality plastics than before, and is garnished with shiny chrome and aluminum trims. It also comes with a range of high-end connectivity features including LTE internet, and also gets voice control, 3D graphic display, and Google online services.
All these amazing features are amde possible by using a dual-core Tegra 2 1.2 GHz processor and Nvidia graphics. In order to find out how does this laptop drive we have to wait for the technical specs to be announced.
