That padded vinyl was not only a nicely grained material but extended all the way into the map pockets, something only seen on luxury sedans today. those same materials covered the rear doors as well Today's cars in the segment widely said to have "good interiors" fall flat when it comes to the doors:
Civic: hard plastic
Focus: soft touch uppers only on SEL and Titanium and then only on the front doors
I could go on...
The headliner was NOT scratchy cardboard, but instead a plush material that felt good to the touch.
That was part of the joke...I was suggesting that he at least get a Mk4.
