They still managed to carry over some dashboard switches/buttons from the 1998 Lancer.

I never said I was excited about it just that it is coming. Who knows it might look good.

Lol that made me laugh. I think it looks nice and chunky and certainly has more style than a VW Toerag.

My guess Is the electric mirror switch? Everything else in the interior looks fairly modern

New Honda HRV, that is one awkwardly-proportioned car. You could hide an entire family in the wheel arches

Oh god, it's so bland! And look, they gave an entire dashboard position for the hazard button alone.

Heated seat switches look like an afterthought and they had some left over from the Lancer. Steering wheel stalks look fairly standard Mitsubishi from the last 20 years too. Small things admittedly but these are the type of things that I tend to notice.

Its might be bland but at least its tidy and classy although I agree the outside of the car us very dull. I prefer the last model more.

It's very dull compared to the new Tucson or even a Peugeot 3008. The interior is very dull too. Big disappointment from Nissan. Maybe if this had come out 4 or 5 years ago ok but now it just looks bland and over styled on the wrong places.
I hope the next Renault Kadjar is better than this.

It's an improvement from the previous interior, which wasn't hard. The previous cabin was like a London taxi.

On the same topic of old parts, my 14 Polo has the same coolant bottle as a 90s golf. I’m pretty sure the indicator stalks are from older VW’s too.
