I'm looking for Volvo to be one of those automakers that might be able to "adapt technically in the mid- and long term" as S&P put it.

Just curious of other's thoughts - do find that with more and more cars coming with an entire LCD instrument cluster these days (like this Volvo) that the use the simulated mechanical dial speedo and tacho a bit silly. A lot of real-estate wasted in my opinion - so much more info can be displayed - music, nav, climate etc etc. Are people not ready for thing change?.

My 6 year old car has the old school mechanical tacho and speedo but with a small LCD in between. I have this LCD set to speed, trip computer readings and music. Seems to cover most things is its small area. Personally I would rather see everything directly in front of me on the cluster and have a steering wheel full of controls.

I find Audi´s solution making more sense :
