Hi, I want to suggest improvements to the interface or ambience for use in car environment.

I find navigation (contacts) and especially the white dot (back button) very hard to handle. Scroll down and stay on the specific menu item is also challenging when driving.

The multimedia keys when playing music are also relatively small to the screen size (Xperia X)

What do you think?

Good news, you do not need to navigate phone's menu items like that while driving, because doing so is illegal in Austria: https://www.help.gv.at/Portal.Node/hlpd/public/content/6/Seite.0631401.html

And exactly this is my request :

Fixed hands-free car kits are required to have a device for the attachment of mobile phones that allows the driver to operate the phone with one hand without changing his or her driving posture significantly.

Strange that I could not find this via the search tool, but thanks for providing the link

For the white dot (back button) just swipe to the right. And with the mulimedia button maybe try QuasarMX wich has a carmode, so in the view of the current title you just tap the middle of the screen for pause/play or the left or right part of the screen for the previous or next title. ...as a workaround...
