Default The Best Looking Hatchback Dashboard is ...

Hi guys,
Thou looks are subjective and most cars are judged by their exterior looks, thought of starting a poll to know which among the TBHPians is the best looking hatchback dashboard.

The poll is just for the looks and nothing to do with featurers/quality/ergonomics/usage etc. and definitely its not about comparing specific brands of cars. Thanks for voting !

A few pics for your reference, (source carazoo.com).

its a highly subjective question youve asked here. But anyways just like to point out that the i20 dashboard is no longer whats displayed in the picture. Its got a new silver centre fascia now and its not really black. Its a dark brownish reddish color with along with some beige too on the bottom half.

The Micra dashboard posted must be of European Spec. Because, Indian Micras don't come with steering mounted buttons

Default Good topic...

Though I am a die-hard FIAT fan, I have voted for VISTA.

I liked the central console and waterfall theme - and everything is nicely laid out, and fall naturally to the hand. Now if they could do something about the steering wheel.......

I liked the i10 but it ain't in the list. From the list the Polo wins for me due to the combination. I have a thing for Biege.

Default Jazz/polo

My vote went to the HONDA JAZZ. It has the best looking dashboard and central console. Looks to ahave a little bit of Oomph! factor. I like the POLO dash as well, but that is more for quality and less for design.

For me, you can segregate the dash/central console with the materials gone into it. Else, Punto could have been a good choice too.

I10 should have been in the poll list. It has one of the best dashboard in the hatchback segment.

Voted for the jazz. Modern looks with on the spot ergonomics and easy to use controls.

Haven't seen the Jazz live, and of the cars that I have personally seen it is the Beat. But that is missing from the list.

From the pictures

with Vista a close 2nd.

Voted for Jazz

Jazz is the Choice in Design! But I would rate the simple high quality design of the POLO a close second.

I'm surprised to see both i10 and Fiat 500 missing from the list!

I don't see Beat in the list as well! I believe Jazz has the most ergonomically designed dash of all.

1)Best looking dashboard is i20.
2)Free flowing dashboard(Waterfall??) is Ritz,not the blue/grey one ofcourse(I am biased because I own Ritz).The texture is really good.Good thing is gear lever on dashboard.. very comfortable!
I do not like AC vents and AC controls though.BAD!!.
3)Vista is terrible.I hate the hard plastics.Otherwise OK.Change the steering please.It actually kills the overall feel of dashboard somehow.
4)Personally I do not like Jazzy dashboards,so Jazz,Micra are out.Again very subjective and my choice. NOM!!May need some time to get used to it.
5)I felt Polo's dashboard is good but not attractive,almost like fabia.But Beige theme has given it some good looks.Somehow,I don't like black theme which they use in German and Czech cars.
6)Swift dashboard too dated.Waiting for new swift

As mentioned by several others, why is the i-10 missing? Entry level hatch, the i-10 has the best and premium hatch, tough between jazz and i20 but my vote goes to the jazz, none others are even close
