Default Your (SSEi) Interior vs other cars

How would the 2000-2001 Bonneville'* interior compare in terms of style and quality compared to other cars such as the chevy impala, ford taurus, chrysler concorde, and any others? Honest answers please!

i prefer the cockpit style interior in the bonneville, everything wraps in and faces the driver... lets not forget to mention the sweet red guages

The main reason i want to know is because I keep hearing and reading about how cheap the interior is, and i want to see if thats true because it can't be any cheaper than any chevy.

SSEi hands down, the GP interiors dont do a whole lot for me..i like the full insturmentation, however i dislike the 2000-2001/02 headrests...the seats in my 93 are more comfortable IMO.
There is a few reasons Bonneville cost more than Grand Prix, interior ammentites is one of them

I think they are all pretty much comparable & alike. I do like my Taupe interior. The Bonneville dashbosrds are better looking than others imo. The older 92-99 Bonnevilles had better interiors, especially the seats than the 2000+ Bonnes, again my opinion.
