The interior layout, fit and finish
Driving position and dashboard
Standard equipment on the Audi E-tron includes electrically adjustable front seats with four-way lumbar support and a memory function for the driver. The steering wheel has a good range of adjustment (manual in the lesser trims and powered in the top-spec Vorsprung) so you'll have no problem getting comfortable behind the wheel – and staying that way for long journeys.
There’s a 12.3in digital display behind the steering wheel that Audi calls the Virtual Cockpit. It replaces conventional instrument dials and can display a broad array of information clearly.
Visibility at night is aided by bright LED headlights. S line trim upgrades them to adaptive matrix LED headlights, which can stay on main beam without blinding other drivers.
Sat nav and infotainment
A second, 10.1in touchscreen can be found above the E-tron’s climate control panel, giving you access to the stereo, phone and sat-nav. It looks sharp and responds promptly to prods, and it's easy to use when you're parked up. However, finding the correct area of the screen to press is quite distracting when driving, so we'd prefer a secondary rotary controller interface, as you get in the iX3.
