I kinda dig the clean look of the Outlander's center stack. Everything's laid out in a very intuitive way, and there isn't even a hint of clutter.
As you can see, though, a couple of things were sacrificed to achieve this result: tuning and volume control knobs. I favor knobs over buttons for those functions -- I find 'em more user-friendly.
What about you? Buttons or knobs? In this age in which many cars offer drivers the chance to preset up to a zillion of their favorite stations, maybe a tuning knob isn't so necessary after all.
