Interior and equipment

The interior is made in the same way as the exterior - all interior details are made quite high quality. Upholstery materials are far from budget, and a high level of assembly and various elegant inserts can satisfy even the most capricious customer who buys a Hyundai Solaris. Reviews about the interior are extremely positive. And now let's move on to the kits. The novelty has seven of them (3 for models with a 1.4-liter engine and 4 for a 1.6-liter version). Here are a few of them: "Classic", "Optima", "Comfort", as well as a family option. It is easy to get confused in such a variety of configurations.
