BMW 5 Series: Introduction, Display


There is only one instrument cluster available with the launch of the G30. The instrument cluster has an 8.8" TFT display and therefore allows for situation-dependent display of information that is relevant to the driver. This flexible display of information achieves a maximum degree of clarity and comfort and is used among other things for the following improvements:

  • Minimization of driver distraction by optimum arrangement of related functions and situation- based displays.
  • Improvement of the driving experience by the display hierarchy and design adapted to the driving situation.
  • Improved driving comfort through the display of new indicating instruments and functions (e.g. picture-in-picture map display on the instrument cluster).
