The screens of the Digital Cockpit and the Infotainment systems merge at night with the illuminated buttons on the capacitive multifunction steering wheel and the background lighting (up to 30 colours) to create a well-lit, aesthetic and functional platform for providing information. The ambient lighting's colour highlights are also reflected in the Infotainment system and Digital Cockpit.
