Dashboard and controls
Climbing aboardopel astraThe eye immediately moves to the dashboard, directed at the driver: the effect of the two screens (for the instrument panel and the multimedia system) united into one eyelid-less curved strip is particularly beautiful. Less attractive, but functional, are the switches at the top of the console: they serve as a shortcut to some infotainment menus and manage seat and steering wheel heating, as well as various “climate” functions (but not air distribution, which must be set from the screen).

The loading deck can be installed in two levels and using the full height two bags can be fitted under the awning, there is space left to the side: excellent. Moreover, the loading sill is not too high off the ground (69 cm) and there is a trapdoor through which skis and other long items can be accessed.
