VW wins it for me. Simple elegant and classy.

If Jazz would have been in production, I'd have voted for it.

God. Why is the Beat missing here? It should be somewhere at the top, just behind the i20 IMO. You've got to sit in a Beat and that too Lt, and experience this. The attached image does no justice to the actual appeal of the dash. It feels way more beautiful.

Hope I can bring new life to an old thread: What about the new (and in the US) Ford Mustang's dashboard. See https://www.wired.com/story/gm-ford-electric-this-week/ .

This shows fairly impressive dashboards from 2010 onward in the video. I think we are lacking behind. Yes?

Amongst the imported cars, it's hard to beat the F56 Mini Cooper's dash. The quality and materials used are exceptional, and all the buttons and controls are laid out beautifully. They have relocated some of the switchgear, controls and gauges to their logical positions (power window switches were on the central console, for example - but the relocation of the speedometer to its logical position from the central console was a tad disappointing)

Amongst the affordable domestic cars, it's a toss up between the Polo and the Baleno, in my opinion.

The best hatchback dashboard for me is the VW Polo.

It is a simple, yet elegant design.
It may not have the gizmos, but the quality of the plastics used are very good and despite 3+ years of constant abuse (kicks, finger nails) at the hands of my toddler, there is not even a single scratch on the dash!

Even after 5 years of use and lack of attention on my part, it still looks like new.
No fading, no scratches, no discoloration, no loose parts!

The ugliest for me, would be the Old Brio, and the Etios Liva.
