And, from exactly what I can make it, it looks like there’s a digital instrument cluster ahead of that guiding wheel. It might simply be a big, horizontal screen between analog evaluates, but we can’t make that much out. For that, we’ll just need to wait and see. With any luck, the infotainment display in the center stack will be bigger, and less recessed, and might even provide some form of gesture control.
