Different types of information are shown in different displays depending on how the information should be prioritized.

The instrument panel shows information about speed, road sign information, warning and indicator symbols, battery status, etc. The instrument panel can also show incoming calls or information about the current song on the radio. It is controlled using the steering wheel keypads.
Many of the vehicle's main functions are controlled from the center display, such as the climate control system, the entertainment system and seat positions. The center display also shows navigation and road sign information. The information presented in the center display can be handled by the driver or by someone else in the vehicle.


Wearing gloves can limit or prevent touchscreen response.

Voice control system

The voice control system enables the driver to control certain vehicle functions without taking their hands off the wheel. The system can understand natural speech. Use voice control to e.g. play a song, make a phone call, increase the temperature in the passenger compartment or have a text message read aloud.
