The 3d cockpit of the A320 family, currently under development

The Airbus A320 Family is a series of narrow-body commercial passenger jets manufactured by Airbus Industries. Designed for short to medium hauls, the aircraft pioneer fly-by-wire technology and regularly compete with the Boeing 737 series. The series includes the Airbus A318, the A319, the A320, and the A321. The "A320 Enhanced" program aims to further improve the A320 family with longer range and better fuel economy.
