The screen with oil,coolant and trans temp gives you a more accurate read. Mine is set to fahrenheit and 194 (90) is normal once warmed up. In traffic it can go to 220 and on the freeway 180 on a cold day.
@caug - I went on vacation for a few weeks and got used to my rental's temperature gauge sitting at middle.
Today, when I looked at my GLA's temperature gauge, I thought the engine was running hot. I parked and searched, found your posting and my temp gauge looked just like your picture. Thank you for posting and everyone chiming in which put my mind to ease.
