I actually did not know that the gate was a swing out and not a lift up. That is great !
Dull is the price you pay for buying into this segment but when you look at why people are buying these a dull interior is just something you learn to live with. Plus Ford can always do little cool things similar to what Scion did in the iA. It's one thing Scion did right.The HVAC controls are very nice, I agree. The base trim is probably going to be really dull though unfortunately. Gonna love to see how the pricing plays out to know if it's worth the upgrades.
That little screen doesn't look large enough to host a map display. Maybe, and it's a far shot maybe, but you might get arrow directions that correlate with the nav in the infotainment system.The dash cluster has a little screen in the middle, think it can be used for map display?
