Nissan is trying to swerve on that trend by prioritizing design and vision over what’s trendy. Keep reading to learn more about what Nissan has in store for the future and how it plans on bypassing the tablet trend. 

Why go a different route? 

To first answer the question of why not follow the trend, there is a simple reason – design and vision. This means the design team is playing around with the idea of having a curved, two-screen display which is reminiscent of a wave.

Timeless Japanese Futurism 

While the shield is eye-appealing, there is more to it than looks alone. When drivers are on the road, their eyes naturally go side to side to take in more information. Since this happens, we are able to take in more information when it is laid out horizontally and in our line of sight. Even though there are two screens, the information can be moved easily from one screen to the other. As an example, if you need your navigation feature in front of you, they can appear in front of the steering wheel. Once they are no longer needed, they can be transferred over to the center or disappear.
