Within, the dashboard follows after the strides of the new Q7 and settles on a pretty sleek outlook. The styling is better than anyone might have expected, yet doesn’t appear to be as innovative and spohisticated as the C-Class or the Jaguar XE, its arch rivals. The MMI display is a tablet that stands out of the dashboard and the car likewise emphasizes a revamped instrument bunch and dashboard cowl. The centre console is fresh out of the box and the gearbox has been changed to a smaller set-up.
