Publication Ward’sAuto has released their annual list of the 10 best automotive interiors. This year’s list, like most years, is dominated by luxury vehicle interiors with a decent mix of import and domestic automobiles. As part of the report Ward’s notes that the average price of a new vehicle is $33,000, which has caused the publication to reassess what a mainstream vehicle really is in the North American market, driving the study to include more premium vehicles.

This year’s list is comprised of the following interiors:

  • Audi TTS
  • BMW 7-Series
  • Cadillac XT5
  • Chevrolet Camaro
  • Chrysler Pacifica
  • Honda Civic
  • Lexus RX
  • Mercedes-Benz GLC
  • Nissan Maxima
  • Volvo XC90

The short-list is the outcome of including 47 new or heavily redesigned interiors in the study. Ward’s claims the winners are selected for a variety of metrics, including material quality, design harmony and the effectiveness of human-machine interface. Infotainment is actually becoming such a big part of the automobile experience that the publication is going to hold its first-ever “User Experience Competition” later this year, with the outcome being another “10 Best” list.
