Visteon has provided Volkswagen Group with an infotainment platform for the Nivus in the Brazilian market.
VW Play is an infotainment system jointly developed by VW and Visteon to provide in-car connectivity, streaming and other services, and will make its debut on the coupe-style SUV.
The 10.1in in-plane switching display with 1540×720 screen resolution is a touchpanel with a split screen featuring user personalization and a rear-view camera.
Initially launching in Brazil, VW Play will be added to other models across the world.
Sachin Lawande, president and CEO of Visteon, said, “Traditional OEM systems are very expensive to develop and are limited in their ability to offer downloadable apps and new market-driven features. This innovative infotainment system, on the other hand, offers a much broader app ecosystem and can be more easily upgraded for new capabilities such as voice assistance.”
The VW Nivus will be available in Brazil from June and in other South American markets by the end of the year.
