This era infotainment is a little bit of a leap from ID4. Now that I’m acquainted with ID7 however, I you should not assume I could ever go back. I also like the overall aesthetics in how it is implemented when as opposed to what is coming with ID8. The large display screen bar mounted across a dashboard seems awful to me.
In general, I am totally loving the car or truck. While ready for split in services I’ve been acquiring acquainted to all of the functions and comforts that the G80 has that my F80 did not. (indeed, some of these are common on most new 2021+ product autos).
