7 of the Best Vehicle Interiors
When choosing your next car, you might think the most important factors are performance and fuel. But the interior may just be as important.
Think about it. If you spend a lot of time in your car, then you’ll want to make sure you pick a model you feel good in. Ample head and legroom, plushy seats and helpful tech features can go a long way in making your daily drive more comfortable. Nice trims, quality materials and a pleasant design can add even more to the overall ambience of your motor.
So which cars have the best interiors? We’ve put together our top picks for the best car interiors in the UK and answer some of the most common questions.
Stay around until the end - we’ve got a special roundup of the best luxury car interiors you won’t want to miss.
7 cars with the best interior
Now, this is a model that got some serious upgrades. Soft-touch plastics, pops of colour, and a 10-inch digital display all make this one of the best SUV interiors we’ve seen this year. Of course, SUV dimensions means there’s also ample head and legroom.
If you’re after something a bit more futuristic, you might want to check out this smart little hatchback. It’s got one of the best car dashboards we’ve seen to date. A series of screens line up along the dash while the wooden trim gives things a nice balance. There’s an HDMI port for your game console too.
What would typically be a standard SUV boasts a surprisingly upmarket interior. Matte and gloss black finishes, a soft-touch dash and silver trim combine to give the Sorento a sophisticated appeal. The dashboard is easy to use and features big bright displays.
The Swedish mid-sized SUV is ready to whisk you away with its Scandinavian-inspired design and lux materials. But that’s not all. Comfortable seats, dreamy air suspension and noise suppression make this a truly peaceful and quiet ride.
Mercedes is known for luxury, so it was bound to feature on this list. In that respect, the S-Class doesn’t disappoint with its sumptuous and stress-sapping inside. Quilted leather upholstery, ambient lighting, a polished wooden trim, scent diffusers...what more could you ask for?
Quality interiors that balance both style and comfort are what we’ve come to expect from Audi. But what we particularly like about the Q4 E-tron is its throwback to analogue. The dashboard features physical buttons, which makes adjusting climate control a cinch. Its touch screen is also easy to use too.
If you’re looking for one of the best car interiors on a budget, then look no further than the Kodiaq. While family practicality remains the selling point here, wood-like-inlays and a generous standard tech kit give the interior plenty of value.
What is the best interior car colour?
It all depends on your lifestyle and the effect you’re after. From a practical standpoint, a dark-coloured interior will be easier to clean and maintain. But it can make the inside of your car look a bit dull. A bright or lighter colour, on the other hand, can make the space more cheery.
What materials should I choose?
Again, this depends on your individual taste and needs. Fabric is an affordable choice. The downside is that it’s prone to stain and gathers dirt, such as pet hair. Leather or fake leather is more expensive but is much easier and more robust to wear and tear, though it can be uncomfortable to sit on during the warmer months.
What are the best car interiors for dogs?
If you’ve got Fido along for the ride, then you’ll want to ensure you opt for an interior that’s durable. Leather or fake leather are the best options here as well as tougher, less scratchy plastics.

It’s a little bit fierce and a little bit extravagant, but we love the drama the Sian brings. It features a vertically mounted touch screen and futuristic lines.
Chevrolet C8 Corvette
Is it a fighter jet cockpit? Maybe it’s a spaceship? Whatever fantasy the Chevrolet transports you to will be a world apart in this stunning interior.
From the expertly crafted trims to its roomy dimensions, the Phantom feels more like a hyper exclusively first-class lounge than a set of wheels.
Simple but elegant and perhaps more art than design, the Chiron’s interior is a whole experience. Sweeping lines and minimal controls mean you can focus solely on the drive.
