Judging a car by its exterior makes sense, but when it comes down to it, you’ll really be spending most of your time actually inside the vehicle. It’s therefore arguably as important that the interior matches the outside, because a great looking car with a shoddy interior won’t be doing you any favors on a long road trip.
That’s why, when sites like WardsAuto.com rank the top ten interiors available, it’s probably good to at least pay some attention. “The honorees represent a broad swath of cars and utility vehicles available in the U.S. with advanced human-machine interfaces, high-quality materials, outstanding comfort and, in some cases, breathtaking aesthetics and limited self-driving capabilities,” Ward’s said. ”To be eligible for Ward’s 10 Best Interiors, a vehicle must offer a new or significantly redesigned interior. Unlike with Ward’s 10 Best Engines, there is no price cap,” it added. Hence the nearly $400,000 Rolls-Royce.
The following are ranked alphabetically, so number one doesn’t mean it’s any better than number ten. The numbers are for formatting purposes alone. Here are the 10 best interiors, as determined by Ward’s, from about $25,000 up through the aforementioned $400,000 — a little something for everyone.
