New Peugeot i-Cockpit points to the future

Hi-tech new Peugeot interior layout showcases future interior layouts; will debut in next Peugeot 3008 SUV

Peugeot has revealed its next generation of dashboard, which will make its production debut in the forthcoming new Peugeot 3008 SUV that’s due to arrive later this year. After the 3008, the new i-Cockpit will also be used in the next-generation Peugeot 208 supermini and Peugeot 308 family hatchback. It’ll replace the current i-Cockpit, which aimed to improve forward visibility and manoeuvrability by making the steering wheel lower and smaller, while raising the instrument dials so you looked at them over, rather than through, the wheel.

This news comes hot on the heels of Peugeot’s parent company PSA announcing it’ll introduce 26 new models across both the Peugeot and Citroen brands, most of which will use this new interior architecture.

One of the biggest changes with the new i-Cockpit is the introduction of the French company’s version of the Virtual Cockpit idea already being seen in production Audis. A 12.3-inch high-resolution digital screen will replace the traditional analogue dials and, like the Audi system, will be completely configurable, allowing you to place the speedometer and rev counter precisely where you want them, as well as having sat-nav, media or phone info right in your line of sight.

There’ll also be an overhaul of how the central infotainment screen is controlled. Instead of a fiddly touchscreen setup, the eight-inch screen will be operated using seven buttons on the centre console. These will allow you to switch between different functions, including climate control, stereo, phone, driver-assistance systems and sat nav. This last feature will have full 3D mapping and will respond to ‘pinch-to-zoom’ input. The new system will also be fully compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity systems.
