    Interior Motives: Geometry A

    2019-10-18T08:25:00Z

    The announcement of Geely’s brand-new electric car sub-brand Geometry, so fully-formed and sophisticated, was a shock to many at the 2019 Shanghai motor show.

    Focus: Interior Lighting

    2019-10-18T08:24:00Z

    The end of the age of speed is having a profound effect on the way car designers are thinking about interiors, and especially their lighting.

    Interior Motives: Lincoln Corsair

    2019-10-18T08:23:00Z

    Lincoln has been working in the C-sector space for over a decade, seeking to bring big-car luxury to a small platform and package. The spacious Lincoln C concept of 2009 explored this theme, and hints of Lincoln interiors to come were found in that car, especially the broad two-tiered instrument panel and the wide, open cabin and panoramic roof; and the experience of the C project has surely informed the bringing of the premium ambience of Lincoln’s larger SUVs into the five-seater Corsair, which completes Lincoln’s latest product line renewal.
