/o/ will prefer one of these interiors
Can you guess which one? (Hint, its the one on the right)
My tastes are a little more sophisticated, desu senpai.
While I hate floppy paddle shifts, and like manuals, the one on the left would be pretty damn practical.
Minimalistic dash/tacho and holographic GPS would be awesome, though if it was left on permanently it would be annoying.
>The wheel on the right is circular, unlike left
>Left has no transmission, probably a CVT or some new-age joke
>Only one gauge with no indication, and a number in the middle, presumably the speed
>Almost no AC on the left, right has nice big vents
>Right has switches and controls for usability
>Left has nothing
>Right has comfy looking seats
I can understand the buttons, but what's with the hate on the gauges? t.b.h f.a.m it's a better option. It might not last 30 years, but it's not like it would be an expensive fix by the time the technology is fully integrated
>everything you need regularly is controlled by knobs or buttons
The HUD showing navigation is kinda neat, but I miss those late 90s/early 00s interiors like pic related. It's so simple. Big, easy to use buttons and knobs that are workable if you're wearing gloves in the winter. Sensible readouts, you've got speed, RPM, fuel/temp, mechanical odometer that has a nearly audible "clunk" as it rolls over. Want to upgrade the head unit? Go ahead, it's double-din! You're not locked in to whatever shitty infotainment system the car comes with that's already obsolete by the time it rolls off the assembly line.
I'm an automotive luddite, I love how comfy and simple older dashboards and "infotainment" (I hate that word) were. I feel like I'm at work with two monitors having to constantly checking emails and updates with newer cars and their glass cockpits.
Electrically =/= electronically. Getting a pulse from a potentiometer to move the tach needle is not the same as a pulse from a potentiometer going to a computer to interpret it, then going to a screen.
God, remember when steering wheels were simple and you had just one stalk, with maybe one or two knobs on it? Not two or more stalks with three bajillion functions each, and a steering wheel crammed with buttons/switches?
You had a horn and maybe cruise control on the wheel, and that's it. Now cars have more buttons than an Xbox controller on the wheels.
And whatever happened to horn buttons? Those were so easy to press with just a thumb while keeping both hands on the wheel!
Maybe, but they're a god-send when it's 20 below, you're wearing gloves, and you just need to get the defroster working without taking off your gloves.
Or you're driving and want to change the heat without taking your eyes off the road.
Maybe I am an old man. I'm 27, nearly there already!
And you could adjust your A/C easily without even having to look at it, instead of fiddling around with an imprecise, slow touchscreen. Now they just make it a "press a button 5 times to switch modes, and if you miss the one you want, you have to press it five more times" style system, which also distracts the driver more than 3-knob HVAC.
>Laggy touch screen
Never encountered one, must suck
>No muscle memory of touch screen
It really isn't hard to learn something new. Most controls are voice activated or on the steering wheel anyways. Using a touchscreen isn't something you even really need to do while driving
If you can remember where the knobs are then you can remember where to touch the screen. Living where you need to wear gloves must suck though, I hope whatever your reason is for doing so is worth it.
>you have to press it five more times
A button or touchscreen?
And you can typically either replace it with basic tools or have a sense of it starting to fail.
>never encountered a laggy touchscreen
So you've never used a car touchscreen?
"Sorry, I didn't understand that. Please say a command"
>steering wheel controls
Clog up the wheel and make it very uncomfortable or clumsy to use for actually, y'know, steering. You know where they would make sense? On the dash, where they've always been. Easy to reach for both passenger and driver.
>And you can typically either replace it with basic tools or have a sense of it starting to fail.
You don't use your parking brake, then. They can freeze up at random, and there's nothing you can fix with the cable units that you can't with the electronic.
>confirmed for never using 3-knob HVAC
You can feel around for a knob. You can't feel around on a screen.
>you have to press it five more times
A button. Say it's fan settings. You press it once, it turns on upper vents. Press it again, it turns on upper and lower. So on and so forth down to defroster + lower vents. Oops, was in a hurry, pressed it one too many times. Gotta start over. With a knob it's a defined position.
Haha it seems you're just going to believe what you want. Go test drive a new car though, you're mind will be blown.
You must hate airbags too, making the steering wheel all extra big and obnoxious
>the joke went over his head
>he is really this dumb
The one on the right, if brand new would be better, but obviously looks like dog shit.
Sorry, but I prefer my environment clean when I have to
Probably, I just don't want to end up looking like shit and driving a unkept dogshit around i.e. a shitbox.
I would choose the left one because it probably just works and don't need to maintain a lot since its a new car (assuming).
Please, don't try to be so self-righteous about cars, you know DAMN WELL you will pick the one on the left unless the one on the right is a classic or is worth a ton of money OR it has some kind of special attachment to you (an inheritance or something).
Therefore, fuck off and have a nice day.
