1) Audi A8L
Audi takes top honors. The reviewers were impressed with the sleekness of the interior design language, loving seats, and materials. We also found the options of massaging front seats and a heated steering wheel nice, as were the infotainment system’s Bluetooth connectivity and integration with Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto
Quite simply, the A8’s cabin is a lovely place to spend time, but what really interests us is all the tech. The gauge cluster is fully digital, and the dashboard consists of two massive touchscreens that control everything in the car. Higher trim-level cars even get a removable tablet in the back seat to control climate and media.
2) Honda E
Okay, you can’t buy this car in the United States — Honda has no plans to sell its cute E hatchback here, but we still think it deserves a spot on this list thanks to the sleek Honda design. The interior is simplistic and easy to look at, with plenty of screens and wood trim (yes, wood trim!) that brings it all together. We’ve added this to our list because it sets a nice standard for a new generation of small hybrids and EVs. Simple, clean, capable.
3) BMW 8-Series
Back to business. The stellar BMW 8-Series is blessed with one of the finest auto interiors. The new family of BMW driving machines brings a new level of interior design and engineering with it. It’s typical BMW — everything is centered around the driver, which makes sense for a two-door GT car.
The 2022 BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe is available with either a 6-cylinder gasoline engine (840i and 840i xDrive models), a V-8 gasoline engine (M850i xDrive and M8 Gran Coupes), or a hand-tuned V-8 Bi-Turbo gasoline engine (ALPINA B8).
4) Volvo XC90
While Volvo is know for building safe vehicles, their designers have come up with some of the most fascinating interiors in the industry. Volvo is famous for having some of the most comfortable seats in the game, and the XC90 is no different. Pair that with a minimalistic yet usable dash setup, and you’ve got yourself one of the best SUV interiors out there.
With top-notch interior materials, a pleasant ride and intriguing selection of powertrains, the Volvo XC90 should make the to-consider list of anyone looking at a midsize three-row luxury SUV. The Volvo XC90 is a modern classic.
5) Mercedes-Benz S-Class
Whether you go coupe, sedan, or convertible, the S-Class provides one of the most luxurious, well-appointed cabins on the market. The seats are impeccable and the dual digital screens provide all the tech-related features you could ever ask for. A new version is due out soon, and it looks even better.
6) Tesla Model S
Say what you will about Tesla—the company knows how to make a cool interior. The gauge cluster is digital, and the entire center dash is occupied by a massive touchscreen that controls everything from navigation to climate control.
7) Lexus LC500
That wonderful V-8 drivetrain and those stunning looks aren’t the only things we love about the LC500. The interior is comfortable and welcoming—a great place to spend a long road trip. The only thing we’re not fans of is the infotainment system.
8) Porsche 911
Porsche’s newest interior design checks pretty much all of the boxes—the driver has a perfect seating position, and visibility is great. The new digital dash is modern, yet traditional. We’re curious to see what a stick shift lever will look like in here.
9) Lincoln Navigator
The Navigator is the perfect vehicle for moving people or towing things in total comfort, and a lot of that has to do with its lovely interior. There’s a wide range of tech features, a massive center console, and plenty of soft leather surfaces.
10) Range Rover
The Range Rover seats five people in its standard configuration, while a four-seat layout is optional. Back-row space is excellent, especially in the long-wheelbase model.
Leather upholstery, 16-way power-adjustable and heated front seats, and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel are standard. Seating options include upgraded leather upholsteries, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and ventilated and massaging front and rear seats.
“It is breathtaking in its modernity and impeccable in its restraint,” said design chief Gerry McGovern. “In car design terms, it’s as much about what you do do as what you don’t do.”
