The top ten best cars for interior and comfort

Driver Power asked UK new car buyers about their cars' interior and comfort, here are the top ten highest rated

  • Covering: Interior styling, quality of the interior finish and materials, front-seat comfort, all-round visibility from the driver’s seat, rear-seat legroom
  • Winner: Lexus NX
  • Score: 94.14%

As somewhere drivers and passengers will spend countless hours, a car’s interior needs to be a pleasant environment.

Comfort is important, as is visibility from the driver’s seat, rear legroom and build quality – the latter especially so considering the amount of wear and tear a cabin suffers with daily use. The Lexus NX won this category by having excellent scores in all these areas, and proving it ticks pretty much every interior box.

The Japanese brand has a reputation for building cars to an exceptionally high standard, and owners say the NX’s cabin lives up to that, with a strong sense of solidity being backed up by high-quality materials. You also told us that the NX has plenty of space in its rear seats, with this practicality being complemented by a stylish cabin that offers drivers excellent all-around visibility.

Owners also praised the NX for its very comfortable front seats, with the driver’s noted for being easily adjustable both in terms of position and support, making long journeys all the more enjoyable.

Your view

“Interior styling is good on the NX. The seats are comfortable and you can adjust both the driver’s seat and steering wheel easily. Controls are all well positioned, too.”
