New Volvo V40 2012 - Active TFT Display at instrument cluster  |  More info

is the ultimate Volvo website which will contain all info about classic Volvos! If you need any parts manuals, hints and tips or service manuals you can view them at Volvotips.com. We're still developing the website so stay tuned for extra info about your favorite Volvo car.

This video (made by Volvo) shows how the new customizable Active TFT crystal display in the instrument cluster of the new 2012 Volvo V40 works. The dash and interior of the new Volvo V40 are really nice and points out the "Design around you"-concept perfectly. It's very easy to customize the instrument cluster to the color you want and it's a very cool feature in my opinion. The 3 standard modes (or better said: themes) are: Elegance (brownish), Eco (blue/green) and Performance (red). Note: the customizable Active TFT display is an option for a Volvo V40 and doesn't become as a standard so you'll have to buy it as an accessory. On the more luxurious models it's already installed. The new Volvo V40 is for sale at the local dealer since August 2012 and has already Modelyear 2013.

This video shows the long version of the new Volvo V40 with its unique digital ActiveTFT display which can be modified by the driver. The short version can also be found in my Youtube-channel.

Volvo's new digital instrument cluster has three different modes for a customized driver experience. The driver can choose between the themes Eco, Performance and Elegance depending on the driving situation. Each mode brings not only a different layout, but also different functionalities that can be switched between instantaneously while driving. The Eco mode is designed to give the driver all the information needed to drive in a more fuel efficient way. The Performance mode transforms the cluster into a more power focused interaction. The Elegance mode presents a classic and clean cluster.
