2013 ATS 2.0T Lux, 2017 MB C300 Coupe
Not strictly an ATS question, but curious. When I got my ATS (3/13) I thought it had one of the classiest dashes I'd ever seen. It was very modern looking while being very uncluttered. Just wasn't used to seeing such a cool dash. However, I have noticed that many other cars (other than GM) also have a similar looking dash...and I do mean very similar in the sense that their dashes have the same general upward sweep from the console. So I ask: How come so much similarity between the dashes of different manufacturers?
