The interior also has not hit the lens photo spies. It is logical to assume that the new model will be more comfortable and equipped according to the take for the development of high-tech features. This means that inside the car BMW will continue to move away from the abundance of plastic and roughly chopped lines. More high-quality leather, the increase in the number of premium materials in the interior, and improving the quality of plastic parts in the interior. All this will take place against the backdrop of improving the style. Presumably, we can expect changes in the layout of the cluster in the dashboard, and the transition from the analog gauges to modern TFT display.
