Augmented reality head-up display
Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the Q4 e-tron is its AR display. This reflects essential information via the windshield (on two separate levels), the status section, and the AR section. In particular, the information presented shows starting points and destinations. And the visuals correspond with the real-life outside world. In fact, the visuals appear like they’re floating 32.8 ft from the driver. And depending on the circumstances, these visuals can appear farther ahead. Best of all, the AR display avoids confusion or distraction—enabling you to focus on the road ahead while receiving helpful guidance.
Furthermore, the AR display’s field of view corresponds to the driver’s perspective of around 70 inches. On the status section, it’ll display the current speed and the traffic signs. Also, it’ll provide navigation symbols as static display that float roughly 9.8 ft from the driver. These features bring the real and virtual worlds together.
11.6-inch diagonal high-tech display
The Q4 e-tron features an 11.6-inch diagonal display with a resolution up to 1,764 x 824 pixels. In fact, it’s the latest Audi display up to date. The screen is configured with an MMI radio plus with DAB reception that controls the infotainment system and a variety of comfort settings. Impressively, the screen offers handwritten text as an input.
Touch operation steering wheel
Audi has traded physical buttons on the steering wheel for buttons that respond to touch and swipe gestures. And with a double-spoke design, the different versions of steering wheels are luxurious. Once pressed, the buttons provide a soft haptic feedback for confirmation. And they’re separated by slight protrusions to eliminate any confusion or errors.
