Default Dash Reflection?

Do those with 2018 or 2019 kalahari, red or gray interiors notice a reflection in the windshield from the strip of color leather surrounding the instruments? I'm shying away from a colored interior for fear of seeing this reflection during daylight driving.

I have a 3LT 2017 Kalahari which does have the dash portion. I see the reflection a bit, but I have never found it distracting enough to wish it weren't there. It's really a non-problem for me.

Tension Blue Interior here with the GSCE. The reflection of the bright blue was unusual at first, as it's the first really bright interior I've had, or at least with bright color on part of the dash. Never really something I found distracting, even at first, and got used to it very quickly. Certainly nothing that would dissuade me from an awesome two-tone look of the interior!

Such a nice change from the typical monotone interior of most cars I've owned up until now!

You get used to it.

Every newer vehicle I own has some degree of reflection. Such is the "cost" of steeply slanted windshields.

I have the 3LT red interior and wear polarized sunglasses which eliminate the reflection entirely. Without polarized sunglasses the reflection is very apparent, depending on sun angle, etc. Get whatever color interior you want, I don't consider it an issue at all.

I guess that's why my red interior hasn't ever bothered me. You learn new something everyday.
