For every year, Ward's AutoWorld magazine picks the best interiors the automotive industry has to offer. For the 2011 season, the publication chose the 10 best interiors after editors analyzed 51 vehicles that were all-new or featured significantly upgraded interior. Ward's Auto picked the 10 winners from all segments, including luxury sedans, economy cars, SUV and MPV.

These cars were chosen after editors completed score sheets for each one based on materials, ergonomics, safety, the human-machine interface, comfort, fit-and-finish, overall value and aesthetics. “Auto makers are so focused on the smallest details that it’s hard to find a bad interior these days. Still, some are better than others, and we’re recognizing the best of the best,” says Ward’s AutoWorld Editor-in-Chief Drew Winter.

I would like to congratulate the Hyundai-Kia group for having 2 entries in the list, namely the Elantra and Optima. I’ve sampled the Optima cockpit myself and the build quality does feel substantial. The Elantra has just arrived in Singapore and readers have an opportunity to see this award-winning cockpit for real.

The top 10 winners for 2011 in alphabetical order are as follow:

Audi A8

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
