Peugeot unveil next generation i-Cockpit

PEUGEOT have revealed its vision of tomorrow’s driving environment with the next generation of its innovative and hugely popular i-Cockpit®. Technological advances have enabled improved comfort and safety with advanced sensory engagement for drivers and passengers of the next generation of PEUGEOT models.

The exclusive preview showcases the brand’s new interior design direction for future models, with advanced ergonomics, head-up digital instrument displays and interactive touchscreen technology all designed to enhance the driving experience.

It’s re-design will provide driver’s with an even greater field of vision and more leg space for additional comfort. The wheel itself is now even more compact and offers more agility and manoeuvrability with improved driving sensation. Driver’s arms are now closer when holding the steering wheel, reducing the breadth of movement required during manoeuvres, thus making the car more responsive and agile for the driver, with an improved, more relaxed driving position.

Building on the elevated instrument cluster of the current generation i-Cockpit®, PEUGEOT engineers developed a new head-up instrumentation display, with a 12.3’’ high-resolution digital screen taking pride of place on the dashboard. Positioned in the driver’s line of sight, the large screen clearly displays all critical information to drivers within the field of view, enabling more information to be read easier and quicker. This removes the need for drivers to look away from the road, enhancing driving safety.

The 12.3″ screen will feature bespoke futuristic graphics to enhance the in-cabin experience. Passengers will also note the new tablet-like 8’’ touchscreen in the centre of the instrument panel, which has been improved over the current in car infotainment system. New interactive technology has increased responsiveness and made it simpler to use. The next generation i-Cockpit® will also enjoy features including 3D navigation, available on both of the information screens, with real-time traffic information from Tom Tom Traffic.

The design features an intensified look through lighting and an inner chromatic atmosphere as well as the digital elements on both of the infotainment screens. To the touch, occupants will also notice the seats offering multipoint massages, the enhanced build quality of the dashboard and high quality material choices that surround them. Accompanying the visual and tactile element, musical atmospheric settings provide an audible experience, while the inbuilt fragrance diffuser provides the final sensory stimulation for occupants.

Almost all of these senses can be tailored to occupant taste, with two atmospheric settings offered as standard; ‘Boost’, for dynamic driving, and ‘Relax’, for a calmer driving experience. Both settings are completely customisable, making it possible to make on-board experiences of drivers and passengers unique, engaging and unforgettable all thanks to Peugeot’s new i-Cockpit®.
