At first I was at awe… now I’m shifting towards ‘meh’…

I like the upper half very much. It’s driver oriented and it looks well integrated. Reminds me of my current car. Does it fit in a Mustang though… I don’t know. As someone already stated it might be to European. Anyhow, I think it will work and look great.

Unfortunately the bottom half looks awkward and doesn’t look well integrated at all. I’m not talking about the vents, I’m talking about everything underneath them.
Seriously what the hell is this?

That looks like some aftermarket car stereo from the ’90… Pioneer called they want their shady ass radio back…
Why is the volume button at the other side of the driver again? And why do these two USB-ports take up so much space? It’s not like Android Auto and Apple Carplay can be used without any cables… Why do I need these ports in a MY’24 car? Does the car not offer wireless charging and connectivity? I always liked how the S550 had these flips in that position to switch driving mode and other stuff. Why not keeping those? That over there looks like a hugely missed opportunity on basically everything.

Besides, I know it’s a pre-production car and materials aren’t final but I think the overall interior impression is that it looks cheap. The materials used look cheap and the steering wheel looks indeed clunky. I like the flat bottom but that’s about it. No M/AMG/RS/Cupra style buttons to quickly switch driving modes or the exhaust. Did you notice that in the animation the steering wheel has some sort of aluminum cover in the middle?
I’m sure it’s not aluminum as it wouldn’t break in case of an emergency but I hope the steering wheel is just black and does not have this white/silver looking cover.

Anyhow, it’s nice to see some new spy shots. Much appreciated. Do I like them? Partially… But the final product might change the first impression quite a bit. Why is the volume button at the other side of the driver again? Well, maybe because the driver never uses those? I rarely do in my BMW as the steering wheel offers everything I need in order to control the infotainment? Why do the materials look cheap? Because they are, this car will never go on sale so why even bother? Maybe Ford offers premium interior options as almost any European brands do… and most importantly: cheap materials result in cheap customer prices… Not for us in the EU but hopefully for everyone who likes a clean car basically without any extra weight or bling bling.

It likely functions like every other Ford in that it resets after every drive. You would have to press that button every time to get in the vehicle to disable auto start/stop.
Yeah that’s my experience with it as well. Right now, that’s my wife’s Volvo. Her old Infiniti and Audi did the same.

So my initial impression of this is lukewarm and I hope I change my mind when it's properly revealed. The displays have been updated but it doesn't excite me like the '18+ refresh. The AC vents have also migrated down a bit. Not terrible like the camaro but I'm not sure I like that change either.

Steering wheel hump looks like it's from the bronco. The difference is I was pumped and excited by the bronco's interior. Damn.

That infotainment looks to be a arranged like the new BMW I4, a long screen with both digital dash and infotainment (actually 2 joined together to simulate a long one). I like it better as it is arranged on the Plaid with 2 separate screens. As others pointed out materials doesn't seem to be better and overall inside and outside it seems to be a small evolution of a S550 rather than a new car....

I feel like this is a base model in terms of the cockpit switches. The shifter is just a pace holder that won’t be in the final product.

I like it. Wish they kept more retro cues, but I like the Euro vibes as well. We’ll have to see, but I hope the wheel is smaller as well. The current wheel to me seems too big in diameter for a sports coupe.

I suspect that people will accidentally push the stop/start button inappropriately when trying to turn the radio on/off. Honestly, it's a silly place for it. It should be moved closer to where the steering column is.
