Interior

On the inside, Mazda Tribute has a new centre instrument panel design with dials that are flusher with the panel for a greater quality feel. Interior quality feel has been further enhanced by a newly designed four-meter driver cluster ringed in silver-look bezels with new meter graphics, including a red zone on the tachometer for a touch of sportiness.

The floor console is completely redesigned. It has a more modern appearance and is larger, able to hold up to 17 CDs. For vehicles with automatic transmission, the gear lever has been moved from the steering column to the floor console. Forward of this is a new small storage space. The larger of the front cup holders is bigger and now includes a rubber insert that allows it to hold a wider range of cup sizes. There are cup holders at the back of the console for rear seat occupants as well.

The climate control system now features a new arrangement of dials. They are now located at the centre of the instrument panel and include a separate ON/OFF switch for air conditioning. Rounding out Mazda Tribute's new interior is new mesh fabric seat trim, standard on all models, and elegant leather seats as an option.
