The 'virtual mirrors' available on the all-electric Audi e-tron are one of its coolest features. So how exactly do they work?
The benefits of virtual mirrors have been widely touted: less wind noise and lower aerodynamic drag, as well as the ability for the image to be digitally adjusted for brightness if it's dark outside.

The cameras can be adjusted like regular mirrors, and don't make the car any wider, but those aren't the gripes those new to virtual mirrors might develop.
