Replacing the traditional digital instrumentation, the feature can be optioned on the first two cars from the SE grades upwards, at a cost of £450 ($590/€512) in the UK, tax included.
Opting for the tech feature for the Karoq and Kodiaq requires spending £550 ($721/€626) in the case of the SE L and Scout models, and £450 ($590/€512) for the SportLine, Edition and L&K variants. The system is already available for the Octavia, Superb and Karoq, and will be applicable on the Kodiaq as well from later this year.
At the heart of the Virtual Cockpit system is a TFT display, designed for 3D impression graphics. It uses a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 30 chip and it’s customizable, allowing users to select the layout that suits their tastes best.
All in all, a total of five different layouts are available, from the classic one, which displays the speedometer and tachometer, to the sports, with its single, centralized, large dial that contains the speedo and rev counter.
These are joined by the basic, modern and extended layouts. The basic shows two large displays with the current speed and distance remaining to the destination, the modern has a large display in the center that shows the map, among other things, and the extended covers the entire width of the panel with the map or entertainment program. Moreover, there is space for additional customization within all layouts.
