Does anyone else think this is really stupid? I don't drive or own a car, but physical buttons and switches seem like something you don't need to change. https://www.thedrive.com/news/41979/nissan-ariya-replaces-buttons-with-disappearing-touch-controls
The physical feedback from a button being pushed seems like something that you can't sacrifice for some lame "modern" design. Also, buttons are fun to push. Part of the reason of having a mechanical keyboard is the strange satisfaction I feel by pressing each button and feeling it on my fingers while also hearing a sound associated with it.
Would YOU want to use something like this?
Always hated the trend of replacing buttons with touch stuff. What'd we do if the screen doesn't work? Replace the whole fucking screen for a fortune? Why can't they just leave it mechanical. This is 100% the norms' fault.
When I saw the interior of the mk8 I wanted to throw up. Capacitive controls on a steering wheel is some next level stupid.>>76530
It's cheaper to design compared to buttons on top of that. At least some manufacturers aren't so profit hungry that they still keep physical buttons on their cars.
this would be hell if it get popular, hope it fails
wheel looks like a face
It's stupid, I also really don't like the huge screen that they are placing right by the driver. It's distracting, all of these buttons are distracting as well and another issue I would have with this is that much of the time I don't actually look at the buttons to operate them or at least I barely do. You are supposed to be looking at the road, I give a quick glance to the button I want to press and then just feel for it, this can't be done with that new style.
Modern cars are disappointing in general, I always wanted a Fiat 500 but the new Electric one is terrible, I'll probably get the very latest Petrol model and hope that I am still even allowed to drive it in the future.
>>76555>Modern cars are disappointing in general
They really are and the unreasonably fast push towards electric sure isn't helping. At least some places don't have it as bad yet like Europe. I'd like a Yaris or an i30N but North Americans get the monochrome crossover 5000.>>76554
Fuck I can't unsee it. But at least it'll distract me from the fact that it doesn't have a shifter.
reminded of FNAF. gross
