2019 Wards 10 Best Interiors covers the whole price spectrum

Whether it's a $23,000 Nissan or a Bentley that costs 10 times as much, good interiors can be found everywhere in the auto industry.

Andrew Krok
Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

Wards' editors said the GT's interior "oozes grace and sophistication," specifically mentioning the new GT's displays, interfaces and switchgear.

Whether it was the diamond stitching on the door panels or the trick screen that rotates in the dashboard to hide away, we found the right amount of pomp and circumstance in this car.

The BMW M850i earned Wards' praise for its actual metal trim and Merino leather seats.

We sampled the M850i late last year, calling the seats "equal parts comfortable and supportive," and we also called out the look and feel of everything.

Genesis G70

Wards' editors celebrated the ergonomics, infotainment and attention to detail in a car that also happens to be the 2019 North American Car of the Year.

Genesis G70

When we reviewed it recently, we praised the fact that Genesis took more economical materials and still managed to craft an interior that feels positively luxurious.     

2019 Hyundai Santa Fe

Wards gave the previous-generation Santa Fe a nod in 2013, and now it's back on the list again.

We, too, noted the upscale feel given off by this sub-$40,000 SUV.    

2020 Jeep Gladiator

Wards' editors looked beyond the dashboard and found plenty of clever tricks in the second row, enough to earn a spot on the list.

We found the lockboxes to be clever additions in our review of the new Gladiator, as well.     

2019 Lincoln Nautilus

Lincoln Nautilus

Wards' editors were quick to relish in the Nautilus' curves and the details, like how the diamond pattern cut into the seats resembles the Lincoln logo.

We found the seats comfortable as all get-out, and while not everybody is a fan of the push-button transmission, there's a lot to like about Sync 3, the infotainment system Lincoln shares with Ford.

2019 Mercedes-Benz A220

Mercedes-Benz A220

Wards' editors gave the new A-Class sedan a spot on its list for its new MBUX infotainment system and the general design of the interior.

Mercedes-Benz A220

We never liked Mercedes-Benz's first crack at a new-age affordable model, the CLA-Class, but the A-Class righted all those wrongs, which we noted in our review   

2018 Nissan Kicks

Nissan Kicks

Wards loved the interior's use of color and materials that give the diminutive SUV a dash of character.

We found the cabin tech impressive for the Kicks' low price point.

Wards' editors were happy with the tech, which features loads of USB ports and a solid audio system.

We, too, have spent plenty of time with the new RAV4 and enjoy it for many of the same reasons.

Two words: City Weave.

We aren't immune to the charms of plaid, either.
