Visteon Corporation, a global Tier 1 automotive supplier solely focused on the digital cockpit market, has contributed its technical expertise and manufacturing capabilities to provide the infotainment platform for Volkswagen Group’s (VW) new Nivus model for the Brazil market. With its new coupe-style SUV, the automaker debuts VW Play – a pioneering infotainment system for enhanced in-car connectivity, streaming and other services – supported by Visteon.

Developed jointly by VW and Visteon in Brazil, VW Play was created with usability in mind. Delivering a premium user experience, the intuitive interface incorporates customizable control screens, offering a diverse range of connectivity elements, key vehicle information and application notifications.

Offering a 10.1-inch in-plane switching display with 1540×720 screen resolution, the touch-panel optically-bonded product is fitted with a ‘split-screen’ feature that facilitates user personalization and possesses rearview camera capabilities. The solution provides high-resolution video that looks good from any angle – making Visteon’s in-vehicle infotainment system convenient and accessible to all vehicle occupants.

Initially launching in Brazil, VW Play will subsequently feature in a range of models across global markets.
