Audi MMI in-car infotainment review

Graphics and fast-working set-up make Audi MMI stand out against most systems

Audi’s system is not the most instinctive to use, and buyers will have to get their heads around the new layout. Yet once you’ve learned where everything is, it’s far easier.

As with BMW’s iDrive, its touchpad lets you write letters with your finger. This is much easier than using a QWERTY touchscreen, but on test it didn’t recognise the letters as quickly as the BMW. It also has a wheel with buttons for the main sections, and reprogrammable fast keys.

One of the nicer touches is the use of Google Earth for navigation, which gives much better detail. The sat-nav route was fast and easy to follow. The home screen is also very clear and there’s a good colour contrast. Audio quality gets harsh towards the top end, but generally it’s excellent.
