The interior features a complete overhaul over the outgoing model. It comes with a new dual tone dashboard housing circular HVAC vents with silver accents, and a new instrument cluster. It borrows the steering wheel, HVAC controls and the handbrake lever from the Bolero, and has a beige gear lever housing with two cup holders.
