As a decade, the 1990s changed a lot for the automotive industry from the design perspective. Automakers dared to make design changes that were frowned upon before that era. Interior design also leaped functionality and comfort. Many car models in the ’90s utilized updated interiors with new technologies.
But not all of these were especially effective. Today we’ll look at 25 of the strangest car interiors that hit the industry. You may be familiar with some of these car models, and others might be a complete surprise. Check out the 25 strangest car interiors of the 1990s (via Motor Trend) below.
25: Nissan NX2000
Nissan hit a low point in the 1990s but that doesn’t mean there weren’t a few diamonds in the rough. The NX2000 changed the game for what a compact car could look like. Its sculpted design hadn’t appeared on a hatchback before the NX. In addition to the improvement in the exterior design, the interior did the job. The design was controversial to many drivers.
But the driver-centric cockpit would be mimicked later by other automakers (via Car and Driver). The NX2000 used a small amount of interior space well. A comfortable ride quality made the car a pleasure to drive, and the cargo hatch was functional. Had Nissan not been in serious financial shape at this time, the NX2000 might have been more well-known.
