Get A Virtual Cockpit In Your New Skoda From £450 In The UK

Skoda is offering select versions of the Octavia, Superb, Karoq and Kodiaq with the new Virtual Cockpit display panel.

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.

    Just saw it at Paris motorshow, the screen looks so tiny in that big cluster space on the Kodiaq.

    It’s about time, hopefully in few years (or sooner), all and every car manufacturer will offer these virtual cockpits in all their lineup, starting from -you know- Sentras and Camries. not to mention that after that there will be apps and OEM parts or aftermarket applications that can be bought and installed on every single beaten car so everybody will be able to install and enjoy virtual cockpit in their rides.

  • Just a heads up, in the UK whilst confirmed for the Superb and Octavia, it’s still yet to go official for ordering. Karoq will come first being introduced at the same time of ordering for the SportLine and Scout trims. Followed likewise by Kodiaq when the L&K is open for odering. The Octavia and Super are still TBC.

    What is it with VAG that they don’t manage to integrate the temperature and fuel gauges into the screen, but use those cheap looking LED dots – or in this case stripes – next to it? Even in the super expensive Lambo Urus (which uses teh same part as an Audi A4), you have LED dots flanking the screen left and right? Every other maker has them elegantly integrated – what else should that be good for, if not integrating analogue gauges after all – even some VWs themselves (but the newest ones seem to use these LEDs as well)
