The digitised interior of the Tarok Concept indicates a new way forward in the pick-up segment. The instruments and air conditioning control system feature a fully digital design. The interior matches the expressive exterior in terms of style as well as colour. The dominant feature is the colour-keyed crossbar, which extends over the entire control panel to the door trims. Ambient lighting is also integrated into the crossbar. A glass-covered 9.2-inch Infotainment system with sat nav functionality and climate control system along with an Active Info Display (digital cockpit) are the central cockpit elements within the crossbar. The Active Info Display features an 11.7-inch display diagonal and high-quality graphics display (133 dpi). All of the main controls and indicators are located in an ergonomically convenient position at eye level inside the crossbar.
Interior functions in detail
The Active Info Display and Infotainment system create a continuous, digitised and networked cockpit landscape. The area between both displays is linked by a black glass-covered area. As a result, the Active Info Display and Infotainment system have been designed to make use of a maximum range of online services and apps. The telephone and media library have also been optimally integrated as well. Both functions can be displayed and controlled not only via the Infotainment system, but via the Active Info Display as well. Another clever solution implemented with a progressive touch: the centre console features one of the audio loudspeakers, which can be removed and connected to your smartphone via Bluetooth.
The hazard warning light switch is also conveniently positioned underneath the crossbar. Beneath this is a smartphone storage space with inductive charging function and USB interface, as well as the central console with gear knob for the automatic 6-speed gearbox. As is typical for Volkswagen, the functional buttons for the parking brake, ESC, automatic start-stop system, parking assistant and driving profile selection can be found to the left and right of the gear lever. The start-stop button for the engine is also located in an optimum position here.
