Named the most cool interiors of 2018April 26, 2018
The ranking of the steepest interiors was compiled by the American edition of Wards Auto.
The staff of the publication, as a rule, assess the interiors in terms of comfort level, aesthetic component, ergonomics, quality of materials and performance, but for the next rating the approach has slightly changed – truly “bright” variants were selected. Places for car interiors presented in the top ten were not awarded, as cars belong to different price segments. So, further we list the models, whose interiors this year were considered the best.
Chevrolet Equinox for 36 375 dollars. Crossover sales of the third generation started in the United States at the beginning of last year. By the way, the model is expected on the Russian market. Salon Equinox was praised for premium materials, contrasting two-tone upholstery, a functional infotainment system and rich equipment.
Korean cross Hyundai Kona with a price tag of 29 775 dollars became the most accessible model in the list. Contrasting accents and stitching revived an inexpensive interior. Also, the layout of the buttons on the front panel is well thought out and a high-quality “multimedia” with an 8-inch touchscreen is installed.
The premium crossover Infiniti QX50 of the new generation also got on the list. At a price of $ 58,195 the car received successful color schemes that also played a functional role, sharing space with materials of different texture. And the materials themselves are of high quality with a good texture in leather, suede and natural wood with open pores. And the spaciousness in the area of the feet of the rear passengers and good illumination, thanks to the panoramic roof.
Kia Stinger is also on the Wards Auto list. Experts noted that the car for $ 48,350 high quality salon performance, nice aluminum finish, excellent lateral support for the seats, well-implemented infotainment software and quick “connect” with mobile devices, as well as contrasting upholstery as a finishing touch.
Lexus LS 500 for 89 780 dollars demonstrates the Japanese design philosophy with a diamond-shaped perforation, distinguished by a stitching and magnesium inserts. Journalists also liked the red upholstery of the F Sport version.
Off-road car Lincoln Navigator Black Label costs 96 570 dollars. Despite falling into the category of up to 100 thousand dollars, the car salon was called “absolutely stunning”. It uses high-quality perforated leather, suede, and a natural wood finish with exquisite silver inlays. Also noted is the classy “multimedia” and comfortably folding rear seats.
The most expensive car in the top ten was Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid for 201 540 dollars. The quality of performance, no doubt, at the height, but also it was noted the harmonious combination of materials and class work of the touch buttons on the center console. A function of massage in the seats of this model, one of the journalists called “the best in the world.”
Range Rover Velar with a price tag of 91 830 dollars also got on the list, thanks to white and dark blue perforated leather upholstery, as well as carbon inserts with interwoven copper thread. Highly noted was the work of electronics in combination with touchpads in the cabin and chairs with massage functions.
The Toyota Camry, with a price tag of $ 39,253, replaced the generation that attracted the views of the publication’s experts, who liked the asymmetric front panel and a good set of materials, for example, red leather with black and silver inserts, and a projection display and virtual equipment.
Pick-ups in the US are very popular, it would be strange that there is not one on the list. The new Ram 1 500 for 65 945 dollars managed to get to the list. In the Limited version, the car can offer a stylish interior with light-blue and white colors, or, for example, metal grilles covering the speakers of the audio system, as well as an infotainment system with a 12-inch touch screen. In general, the editors of Wards Auto considered it worthy to hit the top ten.
