Audi has displayed the upcoming 2013 A3 interior at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show which is currently being held (10-13 January 2012) at Las Vegas. What exactly Audi did was to display a functional mock up interior of the A3.

A car’s infotainment system plays an important role in this digital age and Audi is fully aware of that. That is probably the reason why its booth display at the abovementioned show has tripled in size this year. The functional display was designed to showcase Audi’s latest generation of Audi Connect which is set to debut on the 2013 A3.

The 2013 Audi A3 will only debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March and in the meantime, Audi has teased us with photos of the car’s interior. Mainly, the new dashboard has a retro feel to it and with a clean layout that has less buttons, compared to the older models.

Audi has introduced its touchpad technology into the Multi Media Interface knob (originally fixed in the A7 and A8). This will cancel out the need to move your hand to write down individual words and internet searches. Audi has also undone the traditional buttons which flanks the MMI knob. Instead, they have been replaced with a switch that toggles between navigation, telephone, radio and media.

The newly developed dashboard mounted monitor has a clear, crisp screen which provides amazing 3D graphics clarity. The seven inch electrically controlled monitor display is only eleven millimetres thick which makes it possible to fit it into the dashboard. Another innovative feature is the Audi Phone Box which is a universal interface between a mobile phone and the car.

Another new upgrade is the installation of Audi’s first Multi Media Extension board (MMX). This piece of technology was developed by Nvidia and it uses the Nvidia Tegra graphics processor. This processor board allows the clear 3D graphics that you see in the pictures here. This processor will also be used in future Audi models and it allows the updating of modular hardware with just a change of the board with a newer version.
