Peugeot i-Cockpit next-generation-1

Peugeot has unveiled its next-gen i-Cockpit interior, which is to be featured on next-generation Peugeot models – particularly in the 3008 and 5008. According to the brand, the new design retains all existing features of the current i-Cockpit, with a number improvements to enhance driver experience.

Following feedback from Peugeot owners, the newly-redesigned steering wheel gives the driver greater field of vision along with extra leg space. The steering wheel is now more compact and the driver’s arms are now closer when holding the wheel – to allow for better agility and manoeuvrability.

Of more interest would be the new head-up instrumentation display, with the 12.3-inch high-resolution digital screen on the dashboard. It displays all the necessary information within the field of view, allowing for information to be read easier and quicker and without the need to look away from the road.

To add to that, Peugeot said that its designers have developed “bespoke futuristic graphics for drivers and passengers.” The 12.3-inch display screen is fully customisable as well, with each configuration heightened with animations and transitions.

Meanwhile, the centre console has been redesigned to be “elegant yet practical” and with less buttons overall. There’s the tablet-like eight-inch screen, which has been improved over the existing infotainment system for better responsiveness and user-friendliness.

Furthermore, 3D navigation with real-time traffic information is obtained via Tom Tom Traffic and can be displayed on both screens. Voice recognition, automatic text message management, Apple CarPlay, Mirrorlink and Android Auto support will also be available.

The entire interior now sports the use of high-grade materials and premium build quality, according to the brand. The seats come with multipoint massages, while an in-built fragrance diffuser is also present.

Although not elaborated, the brand stated that there are two atmospheric settings that can be selected: “Boost” will allow for dynamic driving, while “Relax” will provide a calmer driving experience. Both settings are customisable to provide different experiences for drivers and passengers, alike.
