Best 2013 Car Interiors Named

WardsAuto-logoWardsAuto World magazine has released its 2013 list of the 10 Best Interiors, so if you’re looking for a vehicle that offers a great driving experience, take note.

The editors at WardsAuto graded nearly 50 new and upgraded 2013 and 2013 vehicles in a variety of categories in determining the 10 best. The categories included safety, comfort, value, technology and materials. Overall, the editors noted stylish design, a blend of classic and new technology, and durability as common aspects to the cars on the list.

“This year’s batch of winners really drives home the point that interiors are a vital part of the battle for consumers’ hearts and minds,” WardsAuto world Editor-in-Chief Drew Winter said in a statement. “It wasn’t uncommon all that long ago for auto makers to view interiors as the best place to take cost out of a vehicle.

Here is the list of the 10 Best Interiors as chosen by WardsAuto:

  • Acura RDX
  • Cadillac XTS
  • Chevrolet Spark
  • Hyundai Santa Fe Sport
  • Kia Forte
  • Lexus GS 450h
  • Mazda6
  • Nissan Pathfinder
  • RAM 1500 Laramie Longhorn
