Currently it is a matter of getting into any last generation car and find interiors much better worked and detailed than before. Materials, design and lots of creativity combined with technology, have made them to progress as much as the technique applied to their engines.

For this reason and for the third consecutive year, WardsAuto, a magazine that for more than 80 years has delivered all kind of information and everything about the global automotive industry, has chosen the 10 best interiors of 2013 new cars after analyzing during two months all releases and re-designs of the past year. The evaluation included exactly 46 vehicles and winner were recognized during a special ceremony in the city of Dearborn, Michigan

Judges were concerned about areas such as design, the level of finishing touches, parts adjustments, comfort, safety and technology. Something very interesting is that among the 10 vehicles selected seven belong to Asian automakers, including Kia, Lexus, Acura, Mazda, Nissan, Toyota and Hyundai, of these, two are Korean, Kia and Hyundai, and five Japanese, Acura, Mazda, Nissan, Toyota and Lexus. The remainder are Americans (Cadillac, Dodge and Chevrolet).

Among the top places there are some cheap vehicles like the Chevrolet Spark and the Kia Forte which for being cars priced for under $16000 dollars come really well equipped and competed against other more expensive models and from higher categories such as the Acura RDX SUV or the luxurious Lexus GS450 sedan.

A peculiar note on this choice comes from the Cadillac XTS, which incorporates the latest infotainment system CUE from General Motors, the same which has been criticized by Consumer Reports because of various issues it has shown.

Toyota and General Motors are the two manufacturers with most models gathered among the winners. Three of these vehicles are SUVs, five are sedans, one hatchback and one truck. The bad news is that only two of these cars fall within the range of the cheap ones. So here are the vehicles and models winners of the Best Interior 2013 award sorted alphabetically:

Acura RDX — SUV Priced Around $40,000

So, what is your favorite interior? these results demonstrate that Asian manufacturers are doing a better job in a matter of design and quality. Lucky those who can afford any of these new cars. In my case, I would opt for the Lexus GS 450h and I also really like the interior of the Toyota Avalon and the Dodge RAM truck.

I feel like I can smell the leather of the Dodge Ram, imposing interior, that cabin driver should feel like a private jet.
I love my Ford Mustand!

I can't believe BMW and Mercedes-Benz have no any vehicles on this list. What about the interior of this BMW for example:
Amazing, isn't it? smiley cool
Just be baby.

Holy shit, it is hard to say which is the best one. I like the GPS from the Cadillac XTS and the Lexus GS 450h, love the interior color and upholstery seats of the Mazda6, the steering wheel of the Hyundai Sante Fe Sport looks amazing.. if I have to choose only one, I definetly would opt for the Cadillac XTS.

Good question...
There's no such thing as cheap and cheerful. It's cheap and nasty or expensive and cheerful. NYC Style!
