Come again? Having been in multiple current-gen Corollas, I'm going to have to strongly disagree with that statement.

The interior of the Corolla/Auris/iM looks terrific for about a hot second...and then you start noticing the mish-mash of shapes and textures. And that's before you start actually touching the damn thing, and notice the overall cheapness inside.

Not too mention the horrible ergonomics.

Well that's the impression i got when i saw one but didn't spend much time in it tbh. Maybe it's because its a step up from older gens?

Most likely, my biggest criticism of Toyota is in the Corolla sedan the "premium steering wheel" is just vinyl with some stitching. It feels awful.

It's the same in my Ford Focus. Pretty sure the optional leather steering wheel has never been close to a cow. But to be fair, nowadays a lot of faux leather is used without really labeling it as such, either not specifying the exact nature of the "leather" or giving it fancy names instead. I doubt those leather covered dashboard or partly covered "stiched" parts are leather in anything than most expensive premium brands (and even there real leather might still be an option)

In the USA it is perfectly legal to call vinyl "leather" and mainstream cars with "leather" interiors are really vinyl.

As much as i feel that Hyundai and KIA often take design cues from the competition, they do so in great effect lately and this i30 looks great even with the camo. If that translates inside the cabin too it would be a massive global hit and something to truly worry Ford, Mazda or Toyota at least.

Being a Korean car, one of the most advanced countries in the world, i am also hoping they give the interior a more tech-savvy cabin as this will appeal to the younger buyers.
