And the majority are highly affordable.
Bespoke interiors are all the rage, but carmakers are creating impressive cabins right off the bat. WardsAuto has been taking a look at some of the best interiors to have emerged in 2015, whittling down 42 vehicle interiors to just ten. These are all new entries for the year, and are either all-new or have received a significant facelift. "Each vehicle is scored based on materials, ergonomics, safety, comfort, value and fit-and-finish," according to the criteria with "aesthestics and design harmony" accounting for 20 of the 100 points that can be awarded.
"It's important that great interiors be available in every class of vehicle, not just luxury models that most consumers will never be able to afford," said Drew Winter, WardsAuto World Editor-in-Chief. "In this year's competition, we saw a lot of evidence that automakers are thinking creatively about interiors and putting a lot of design horsepower into not just luxury vehicles, but pickups, minivans and family sedans. And they are investing more in high-quality trim materials, electronic features and other details that will surprise and delight shoppers."
