Entertainment Screen in the 2018 S 450 4MATIC
Entertainment screens in the center console are nothing new. They’ve been around for quite a while, so it should come as no surprise that the 2018 S 450 4MATIC comes standard with one. So what makes it so unique? Size. That’s right, the S 450 4MATIC comes standard with a 12.3-inch screen in the center console, complete with a high pixel count and automatic adjustment to ambient light so that you can have easy access and a clear line of vision to access navigation, entertainment and other comfort and convenience features you need to see. A second 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is also propped right in front of the driver, providing everything from vehicle information to driver-assistance features. Looks like Mercedes-Benz is the only one left standing when it comes to providing easily-accessible entertainment.
Even if you have an allegiance to Audi, there’s something to be said about an automaker that traces its origins all the way back to 1886. Looking for a new sedan to add to your lineup? Get the S 450 4MATIC today from World Wide Motors in Indianapolis!
