The speedometer is placed on the right side of the instrument cluster, and tells you how fast you are driving at any given time. The speedometer has two semicircles, each with a set of numbers. The smaller, inside semicircle tells you your speed in terms of kilometers per hour (km/h). The larger, outside semicircle tells you your speed in terms of miles per hour (mph).
