Like all cars of this ilk, the Morgan 3 Wheeler’s interior is notable for one thing: there isn’t much to it.

What’s also true is that you can discern a great deal about a car’s maker from the way it’s finished. Some niche car makers all but forget about interior finish and realise only too late just how much about the overall quality of craftsmanship buyers infer from cabin presentation. After all, it’s their foremost point of contact with a vehicle.

The interior is predictably sparse but well finished

In the Morgan’s case, all the evidence is encouraging. Two pleasing dials sit in the centre of a dash that’s notable not just for its spartanness but also its neatness. The toggle switches look good and operate with pleasing positivity, while there are evocative or imaginative touches, too. The start button, for example, sits beneath an aircraft-style toggle cover, while the indicator stalk is bespoke. And depsite its minmalistic nature the cabin is swathed in leather.

Mind you, Morgan does have an advantage here because the 3 Wheeler only has to comply with legislation geared towards motorcycles, which means that extrusions on the body, components that stick out in the cabin and radii of surfaces are not under the same scrutiny as they would be in a conventional car. Which goes to show what nonsense some of the legislation is when it comes to specialist cars.

The 3 Wheeler’s cabin space is par for the course. There’s as much foot and legroom as you’ll find in a Caterham Seven, but the Morgan’s steering wheel and dash are set higher, which puts you in a heroic-feeling driving position and allows enough room to twiddle a relatively large wheel (although it’s one that could do with a clearer indication that it’s pointing straight ahead).

There is a boot, of sorts; the rear of the bodywork swings backwards to reveal an odd-shaped cubby.
