I think the shifter is better looking than the one in the $60k F30 m sport.

Other than this, I agree the interior style fits the targeted audience. The Chevy Sonic has the new bike look though.

What I don't necessarily agree is to make it more 2012 look, you just have to make it look different than anything before. To me as long as the dash board is not too busy, there is not plastics all over, and it is made for driving, not for playing, any design would be fine.
