The radio placement is more or less the same distance from hand-to-knob as a normal car, however, in the Chantez it's in a place where you can't legally grab without violating your passenger, Everything else looks far sportier than it really ought to be for a Kei car. In fact, it looks a bit like a quartered RX-4 crossed with a Datsun Cherry both inside and out.
