Features of Sylphy’s interior space

The second-generation Sylphy, which debuted in December 2012, is characterized by a spacious knee room that rivals that of a higher-grade L-size sedan through optimization of interior packaging. Even the rear seats, which tend to feel cramped in general, are spacious enough to cross your legs, so you can relax while traveling.

In addition, shoulder room has been expanded by 30 mm compared to the previous model, improving comfort on long drives. In addition, the doors are made thicker to give more room to the armrests, and the side portions of the backrests of the rear seats are flattened to improve comfort and ease of getting in and out when three people are sitting in the rear seats. Various considerations can be seen to enhance livability in parts.

Interiors for each Sylphy grade

From here, let’s take a look at the interior of each grade of Sylphy.

“S””X””S Touring” with chic interior

Sylphy’s interior is attractive with its calming chic . As the main target is the silver generation who are familiar with sedans, it is characterized by maintaining good quality without making you feel cheap even if it is a base or intermediate grade.

There are two interior colors, black and feather gray with a beige nuance .

Storage around Sylphy’s seat

When choosing a car, it is easy to forget to check the storage around the seat. Be sure to check the location of the small items and drinks you need when driving, as they will affect your comfort. Here, we’ll take a look at the storage around Sylphy’s seat.

Front cup holder

The front seat cupholders are located in the center console. Since it comes with a shutter, it will also be useful as an accessory case.

The center console box isn’t that big, but it’s convenient for storing hand towels, coin purses, and other things you need for a drive. If you close the lid that doubles as an armrest, the stored items will not be visible from the outside.

Overhead console & map lamp

The overhead console installed in the upper part of the vehicle is ideal for storing sunglasses and eyeglasses. The map lamp uses an LED that illuminates brighter while saving power.

Two-stage glove box (standard on “G” and “G Legrand”)

The glove box has a partition and has two levels. The glove box is often used to hold documents such as automobile inspection certificates and automobile liability insurance cards, but the partitions keep the inside clean and organized, so you can quickly retrieve the documents you need.

It is also attractive that it is easy to use even if the inside of the car is dark, such as at night, because it is equipped with lighting.

Grades other than “G” and “G Legrand” are equipped with a normal glove box (with lighting) that is not a two-stage type.

Rear armrest (with cup holder)

There are two cup holders in the rear seat armrests. It would be nice to have a place to put drinks firmly in the back seat.

Driver’s seat/passenger seat back pocket

Sylphy has seat back pockets for both the driver and passenger seats. Now that car navigation systems have become commonplace, some people say that the seat back pocket, which was originally used to store maps, is no longer necessary, but it can also be used as a storage space for tablets, magazines, etc. It may be useful depending on the ingenuity.

Sylphy’s cargo room and seating arrangement

Although the Sylphy is a sedan, it has ample luggage space, and can store four 9-inch golf bags . It can be said that there is enough space to safely load luggage even when golfing or traveling.

Currently, there are sedan models that use split-folding seats for the rear seats, but Sylphy does not use split-folding seats, and the rear seats are not foldable. Seating arrangements cannot be made.
