The Outlander’s interiors are all black with a few splashes of silver thrown in (you can order the interiors in beige though). The dials are sporty, the three-spoke steering is nice to hold, and the red-lit displays look good. However, the design itself is a bit bland and doesn’t have too much flair. The quality is pretty good with excellent fit and finish and the switches and controls feel nice and solid. But for a Rs 20 lakh-plus vehicle, the plastics don’t feel that rich and should have had a softer touch.
Climb into the Outlander’s driver’s seat and you’ll notice the dashboard is somewhat higher than that of other SUVs in this category. Forward visibility though good, could have been better. The front seats, however, are really comfortable for people with a large build. They are well bolstered and very comfy.
The rear seats aren’t as spacious though, however they do slide back to give you those vital extra few inches. The Outlander has a keyless system but misses out on dual-zone climate control. Curiously, the Outlander has heated seats, a pretty redundant feature unless you are spending winter in Ladakh. Boot space is good and the Outlander’s split tailgate is extremely useful and one of the most practical bits of the car.
