Swedish journalists from the publication Vi Bilagare attacked the new interfaces in modern machines. The editors of the portal studied the features of modern cars, focusing on their “clarity” for drivers: how quickly they solve their tasks with the help of the available equipment.
It turned out that owners of older cars with physical buttons coped with switching various car functions faster than owners of new ones with touchscreens and touch keys. For the tests, the Swedes chose 11 new cars and a rare Volvo C70 2005 model year. Such a machine had only physical buttons in its arsenal.
During the tests, it was recorded how quickly it was possible to turn on the heated seats on each particular car, adjust the “climate” in the cabin, and so on. Physical buttons made it possible to cope with the task faster.
“So the first place with a score of 4.5 points was taken by a rare Volvo.”
He completed four tasks 10 seconds faster than the others. The last place went to the new Volkswagen ID electric car.3 with a score of 2.25 points. It took him more than 25 seconds to complete all the tasks.
