Front and center in the cabin, and highlighting the driver-focused interior, is an all-new tablet-style 11.6-inch full HD center information display.

The system is equipped with GreenEdge, an amplifier technology that enables passengers to experience superior sound quality with minimal energy consumption and Clari-Fi, a technology that analyzes and restores lost audio signals in real-time. The two technologies help deliver a rich, uncompressed listening experience.
