I need your opinions about this dashboard.

I can't say why I need to know, but suffice it say, I would like your honest opinions about this dashboard. Do you like it, do you hate it, or have no feelings about it, one way or another? Let me know. Thanx!

Honestly - I think it's very attractive. The interior reminds me of Jaguar and Buick (except for the steering wheel... looks like it's out of a Chevrolet Malibu.)

The exterior and worthless back seat are the things that turn me off the most about this car.

The overall design does nothing for me. Just another interior. The wood is awful, but I don't like wood inside a car at all. Carbon fiber or aluminum is much better. The wood on the steering wheel is awful too.

This interior was not designed for me. For a Luxury car interior look to the new CTS or SRX for my tastes. There is more than "point of origin" for my hatred of Toyota.

Lot of color 'disharmony' to my eye: the off-white sides of the console overlapping the flat black of the upper dash, that 'surfboard' of wood extending to the right with none to the left, the off-white A-Pillar against the black of the dash & window frame... makes the interior look very cobbled together. Other details look quite cheap (door handle & glovebox latch shared with $15K cars, window switch surround, obvious pass ABS cutline, 'glued-on' look of the center HVA/C vents, etc). This is supposedly an aspirational, head-of-class, expensive interior. I don't see it.

Busy and cluttered. The wood is awful- especially on the steering wheel where it looks so out of place. Too many themes clashing in the same space provide no unity to the design.

Too many buttons, too many displays. Do they really need separate HVAC/radio/NAV displays?

Otherwise, I like it.

The center IP stack is terrible. It looks like a single DIN stacked on a double DIN with Nav screen topping. The right side of the dash was stolen out of an XJ, the steering wheel was stolen out of your daughters Celica. About the only interesting thing about this dash is the instrument pods, but everyone is doing that tunnel effect now and in this case it doesn't even fit with the rest of this dash/car.

I don't like how the center stack juts out.

Also, the contrast between the rectangular vents and light wood surround makes looks old (dated?).

Wood looks horrid. The color choices are nice though. The overall design feels vary dated and lacks harmony.

The 'wood' looks too bright, and cheap. Center-stack is way too busy.

It looks like someone took our '81 Jaguar and modernized its interior. It's nice, I like the color scheme. Too bad the car it's found in is obscenely ugly.

No originality, not approved. Woodgrain is horribly light and looks cheap, very fake. The center stack is very busy and very cluttered.

I think some of you guys are forgetting that this car dates back to 2001. I thought it looked rather nice then. Nowadays, yes, it's nothing special.

It also helps if you have a better picture of a better color scheme.

The dash or the car? IMO, that car never looked good. And talk about a pointless rear seat.

The interior... I don't have that bad of taste. :P
