How It Looks - Interior
The interior is pleasing, if not a little utilitarian; the L200 Animal comes with twin tone (black/blue) leather Animal logo embossed seats. The dashboard features white-on-blue, chrome-ringed instruments which are carried across to the climate control switches, which are housed on a carbon fibre style dash. There is also a blue screen trip computer/ information panel, which also displays audio info, i.e. radio channel, plus there is an electronic compass, barometer and altimeter.
The L200 Animal is fitted with a 10 disc autochanger with the audio display on a separate panel on the dashboard, all very easy to use with a decent sound, although the blue display is a little suspect.The Animal is equipped with SmartNav as standard, rather than using a screen for navigation, SmartNav uses a live operator to which you are connected to when you press a button on the dashboard, they take your destination details and your route/navigation instructions are downloaded for you to follow via voice prompts. Plus the system will give you an audio warning of fixed safety cameras. Not as intuitive or as useful as a screen driven navigation unit but it comes as standard.
