This paper addresses aesthetic design with a focus on the application of vehicle interiors. First of all, aesthetic design is clawed. Second, some relevant studies on general aesthetic design as well as more specialized aesthetic design for vehicles are reviewed. Some problems are identified in the existing approaches. Two critical issues are observed, namely (1) what should be the model for a design process, which incorporates the aesthetic aspects for the vehicle interiors, and (2) what should be the knowledge base to support the model. Finally, we propose some ideas to address these issues and elaborate on the steps toward the implementation of these ideas.
