It has all black interior with metallic accents, soft touch material used inside doors and on arm rests. Seats has been covered with leather material with nice looking stitching, also have side bolstering but no for intrusive on your body. One nice thing that I like in outlander that mats on floor are attached using hooks so these didn’t move around.There is lot of space inside car for all passengers and luggage, there is enough space inside trunk but if there is required more than under the floor there is another cargo area where you can place your luggage.
Another artistic looking thing inside car is center console and infotainment system with 8 inch touch screen that can controlled through buttons as well. There are lot other features associated with infotainment system that all can found under features section.

There is enough knee and leg room for front and rear seat passengers but for 3rd row there can be problem if you are tall probably, if so than this is not going to be most comfortable spot because floor board is really close the seats so this spot can be better for children’s.
