Why is it a given that the 2013 interior must be on the best list? This is just someone's own opinion.
It also might be categorized and that the 2013 interior got beaten by the A7

C'MON,,,,, did you see those interiors????? all garbage. the infiniti interior didn't even come close to the 4GS interior. i'm glad the 4GS wasn't on the list. that would have been disrespectful to the 4GS owners.LOL

I'm amazed and impressed by it every day, and for me that's all that counts. And I don't hit myself on the head when I get in and say "I coulda had an A7".

A strange list, no doubt. Even if we omit Lexus altogether, there's no mention of either Mercedes, BMW or even Jaguar.
And why so many Hyundai's? Are they talking about best interiors below a certain budget?

The fact that the A7 is listed shows that they are out of their minds. Both the BMW 5 series and the Lexus GS blow away the A7 in teams of interior design, materials and quality.

I think VW must sponsor Ward's. Especially since the Beetle is also on that list and that has a totally bland interior with a plastic steering wheel.

The a7 has hard plastics, no soft touch materials, no leather dash. It just feels cheap.

When I had my S5 I was invited to an Audi driving event to preview the new A7. Mine had the brown leather and the "distressed" wood in it, and although it was kinda cool it didn't leave much of an impression. The GS did. Not hating on Audi. The A7 exterior is slick, but that's not what I would see 99% of the time.
