The marble-like rich and attractive finish of the car makes up the door handles, steering wheel paddles, air vents and the center panel.

The re-configurable digital display of 12.3 inches successfully splits real estate between navigation telemetry and radio information on the right and a speedometer on the left. While the Corsa mode fills the entire digital display with a racing-inspired tachometer, the strada and sport drive modes help in maintaining this setup gracefully.
