I would have to "sit on the fence" for this debate, so please read on and allow me to contradict myself :D
I mean the comand centre / dash looks awesome, very neat and precise however there is alot of plastic on the door skins and handles, and the fact the exterior shows through on the gaps on the doors gives a "cold" feel to the interior strictly because of the fact you can see metal!
Ofcourse whilst the dash looks nice the compound used also looks cheap but at the same time serves a purpose. Ford opted for this matte material in an effort to reduce glare from the sun on the dash, ofcourse it works however does look very plasticky.
On the other hand, the full revamp of the dash cosmetically is amongst the nices on the market, (better then holdens confusing button arrangments) cant see too much improvements and so on that note can only be picky on the materials they used and not the layout.
AND the empty box in the middle of the front chairs is a good idea considering the glovebox is small.
