Mazda3 ($30,415)

Up-level content and sporty personality make this interior a cut above compact rivals.

Mercedes-Benz CLA250 ($38,555) 

Is this the interior Mercedes buyers have been clamoring for all these years?

Mercedes-Benz E350 ($73,275)

Thank you for the lovely matte-finish wood. We’ll take more, please. Jury out on rumble seat.

Mercedes-Benz S550 ($122,895)

So nice to see a production-car interior that retains the flash and sizzle of concept-car glory.

Nissan Rogue ($32,630)

Probably would have presented in a better color than gun-metal, but overall interior feels “costed.”

Nissan Versa Note ($19,280)

Not as fun as it needs to be. And supplier needs to stop cutting headliner fabric with a chainsaw.

Range Rover Sport ($88,585)

From door to door, there’s a seriously solid feel to handles, knobs, switches, levers and the shifter.

Rolls-Royce Wraith ($372,800)

Take issue with our selection if you must, but only after recognizing this interior is built old-school – by hand.
