If you've ever sat shotgun in a new Porsche Cayenne you know that some cars aren't as roomy on the inside as they look on the outside. Others are masters of space efficiency.
I, for instance, remain completely dissatisfied with any FWD car with a floor shifter and a transmission hump between the front seats. I've logged many hours in a second gen Prius and (WARNING: complimentary statement about a Toyota Prius is about to follow. Please get your barf bags ready) I'm still happy at how there's no center stack and just lots of room below the dashboard. That's the joy of pushbutton controls and a dash shifter, something understood by Gr8Dane.
