When you select the navigation option, the center screen size increases to the 7.3-inch unit seen here. Skimp out, and you'll get a 6-inch screen instead.

A rearview camera is standard, butĀ Audi's optional 360-degree camera system, known as Top View, is shown here.

Screen resolution is excellent, and dynamic parking lines are helpful when parking. A similar forward-facing view is also available.

This is Virtual Cockpit's most traditional screen, with a large tachometer and matching speedometer (note that the latter is displayed in kph, not mph, as the photo car is a European model).

Note the MMI jog wheel with swipe-gesture touchpad just ahead of the gear selector, as well as the driver-definable global preset buttons sitting in front of the cupholders.
