Actually some years ago I worked on a dashboard where the requirements for
the error on the end of the scale were even more relaxed (120-140 km/hour,
[0-20%] )
At lower speed also the error got smaller (0-50 km/hour, [0-5%])
And no, I won't say which brand/market it was. =)

With the sort of car models that are likely to mount an IVI system I would
expect that all the stuff would be chewed by some other uC that is located
closer to the sensor in the food chain, and has also the role of
(in)directly controlling the operational parameters, like temperature,
air/fuel ratio, etc.

IVI should just get the post processed values over CAN bus and make sure
that any virtual needle or similar widget is rendered smoothly and conveys
the feeling of lots of horsepower under the hood.
That's what most customers pay for anyway, also with traditional dashboards
