Infotainment systems are an integral part of a car but there was a time when all that really mattered to buyers was the numbers of seats and the size of the engine. Today, there’s a plethora of amenities and technology that people are demanding, and in some cases, basing their purchasing decisions on. Hmm, give me the good old days...

Anyway, speaking of tech, Audi introduced its MMI (multimedia interface) in 2001 and it’s come on leaps and bounds over the years and is one of the best systems in the business. Our S3 uses a scrolling wheel below the arm rest to allow you to change screens and is very intuitive; you never need to look away from the road and down to the centre console to control it and it’ll become second nature to first time users in a matter on minutes.

Aside from the sharp graphics and user friendly interface, the screen itself can be raised and stowed at the touch of a button into the dash which is a neat feature. Some screens from other brands look like they were tacked on in the last minute and aren’t adjustable. Audi clearly put a lot more thought into the design of its impressive infotainment system than a few others and deserves a pat on the back for that.
