The touchscreen allows those inside the cabin to access apps like music steaming and the world’s first look at ‘Park and Pay’ system. “Information, nav and media are high up and easy to check. The phone controls, application icons and climate controls are located low and are comfortable to reach,” said Dr Peter Mertens, Volvo’s senior vice president of research and development.
