Dashboard gauges are so 20th century. The dash of the future is a flat, high-resolution, and fully customizable. And that’s what the next Audi TT will have when it lands in showrooms later this year.

At CES Audi showed off a full-sized mockup of the TT’s new interior, and the crown jewel is a 12.3-inch LCD screen behind the steering wheel that can toggle between a traditional tachometer and speedometer and a massive map with infotainment and navigation displays flanked by small virtual gauges.

Inputs are handled through Audi’s next-generation Multi-Media Interface control knob mounted behind the stick. It has fewer buttons but gets the latest iteration of Audi’s touchpad that allows you to write characters with your finger rather than endlessly scrolling through the alphabet.

The other notable bit is the removal of the traditional climate controls in the center console. Instead, the driver and passenger can change the interior temperature by twisting a knurled metal knob in the center of the vents, complete with a TFT display showing the fan speed and air temp.
