You may also hear the Digital Cockpit referred to as the Active Information Display, but despite the different names, it is the same feature. This feature is exactly what the name suggests… it is a digital display in place of a traditional instrument cluster.

Like a normal instrument cluster, however, the available 12.3-inch display shares key driving information like your speed. In addition to that though, the Digital Cockpit can also display navigation direction and Driver Assistance settings, making it much more versatile than a typical instrument cluster. Moreover, it can be reconfigured to suit your own driving needs, such as making the speedometer bigger or focusing on a navigation map view.
