In this paper, a technique is described for obtaining the High Order Ambisonics (HOA) Impulse Responses (IRs) of an automotive infotainment system, relying on Finite Elements Method (FEM) simulations performed in COMSOL Multiphysics. The resulting HOA IRs are employed for auralizing the car sound system, either inside an Ambisonics listening room with a loudspeaker rig or with binaural rendering on a Head Mounted Display (HMD), benefiting from head-tracking and personalized Head Related Transfer Functions (HRTFs). This allows performing subjective tests before the prototype is built and preserving the auditory experience with a degree of realism unattainable with the static binaural approach. Measurements performed in a prototype vehicle with a spherical microphone array are compared to FEM simulations. A good agreement between numerical and experimental methods have been demonstrated.
