Re-generate architecture

Peugeots theme of "re-generate" is most apparent in the cabin, where we see a very different kind of interior design. There are three core elements. Sit in the drivers seat, and youll notice that the steering wheel is incredibly small and seems to have been squashed. It sits low, in your lap.

Ahead of it, but tucked up on top of the dash - right at the base of the windscreen - are the dials for speed, revs, petrol, etc. Instead of placing the gauges directly behind the steering wheel and making you look through the gap between boss and rim to see the gauges, you look over the top of the rim. The idea is that you dont need to re-focus between the road (distance gaze) and dials (near-field gaze), meaning your eyes are on the road more often, but youre also constantly aware of your speed.

Augmenting this, and forming the third corner of what Vidal describes as a driver triangle, is the centre touchscreen. This seven-inch unit projects out into the cabin from the centre of the dash in plan, and up off the surface, vertically. It looks, for all the world as though someone has slotted a small tablet device into the dashtop.
