The CUPRA Born utilises a digital eco-system that integrates the most advanced infotainment and connectivity solutions to keep customers in touch with their vehicle at all times.
CUPRA Born benefits from an augmented reality head-up display system, which projects crucial driving information onto the windscreen, and appears layered over the real world (not available on entry trim). Data that’s displayed includes driver assistance indicators, vehicle speed and navigation commands. All information is directly in the driver’s line of sight, improving the overall driving experience and minimising the need for the driver to look away from the road ahead.
The driver binnacle is smaller and more focused, as a result. The simplified layout delivers the most relevant information in high-definition clarity. The smaller digital cockpit also houses the gearshift buttons and parking brake. Fully customisable, it displays only the information the driver needs, in high-resolution clarity.
The centre piece to all the infotainment systems is floating 12-inch infotainment touchscreen, featuring the brand’s latest generation of technology. The 1560x700-pixel display mixes the benefits of touchscreen inputs, physical buttons and voice control.
Capacitive touch technology improves interaction and feedback, making the use of the system responsive and precise. Touch sliders add greater convenience, controlling both climate and volume.
The infotainment system can display a range of data and information including 3D navigation, music, contacts, vehicle settings and driving data, as well as a host of additional functions, keeping the occupants constantly connected.
The Wireless Full Link system means the infotainment system can be connected to both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Music is enjoyed via the optional nine-speaker Beats® audio system.
CUPRA Born also integrates voice assistant technology which can be used for a wide number of functions, including finding navigation information or controlling the cabin temperature in an effortless way.
The system can be accessed by pressing the button located on the steering wheel or saying the wake-up words, “Hola, Hola”.
At the core of all this technology is CUPRA CONNECT, as well as the newly-developed ‘My CUPRA’ App.
With the activation of CUPRA CONNECT, online services are unlocked and remote access is provided to the car. Customers can view battery status, schedule and manage charging from the app, setting the desired state of charge of the battery ready for departure. Climate functionality can also be activated remotely, setting the target temperature in advance or automatically after unlocking doors, as well as turning on the front driver and passenger heated seats.
You can use the application to plan your journeys – allowing customers to search for and send a destination to the vehicle’s navigation system from the smartphone app. The navigation system is upgraded with access to online features, such as online navigation with up-to-date traffic information and checking charging station locations.
Online Connectivity via the embedded SIM (eSIM) also improves safety with the eCall service. If an incident occurs, eCall is triggered and automatically contacts the emergency services, sending vital data including position (based on GPS data), engine type and number of passengers, making it easier for them to assist.
Occupants of Born also benefit from Qi standard protocol inductive charging for mobile devices.
