Have you seen the HRV in person? The dash isn't actually as large as it looks in photos. I agree they couldve added a storage bin on the top of the dash above the center console (my moms kia has one). Also not pictured is the space hollowed out UNDER the shifter area which contains the USB and HDMI ports, as well as a pretty substantial storage space.the HRV center console is such horrible design!!! look at all that space that they don't use. make some use-sable pockets honda!!!!
I'm actually hoping the civic interior gets this bit of treatment with the taller center column that's more even with the arm rest and with the lower storage area. It looks really upscale in person and gives more of the "wrap around" feeling to the cabin.
