Graham Johnson, Managing Director of the exhibition organizers and responsible for the Automotive Interior Awards, explains: “The CES 2016 Showcar offers a fascinating insight into what Volkswagen may achieve in future. On this basis, we should all be excited about next-generation of Volkswagen interior technologies and developments.”

The futuristic interior is characterized by the intuitive operation of the instrument and operating concept and the atmosphere of lightness.

After making a gesticulation to open the sliding door, the driver enters an interior which is more evocative of a lounge than a car.

For example, if the front passenger wants to talk to the rear passengers, he or she can swivel the seat around. In the rear, two conventional seats and one seat surface placed lengthwise are installed on a soft carpet. A large format 34-inch monitor is also integrated in the side wall of the Volkswagen car.
