The 2016 Wards awards for the best interior design have been announced, and most of them are from luxury brands. Out of the 10, just two are cars from mainstream brands, which signify a rapid product development from premium carmakers. There were 47 cars shortlisted for this award (based on US market), so lets see who took top honours.


Audi TTS

Coming out on top is the Audi TTS. The judges were moved with the brilliant 12.3-inch Audi Virtual Cockpit and surgically detailed cabin finishing.


BMW G11 7-Series

Behind the TTS is another German product, the BMW 7-Series. Bimmers don’t generally stand out for its interiors, but the latest G11 7-Series is a glaring exception. The feature laden saloon includes innovative air gesture control, wireless phone charging, massaging seats and the ambient-lit speakers for the Bower & Wilkins sound system.2016 BMW G11 7-Series Malaysian Launch - AutoBuzz.my


2016 Honda Civic

There are only two mainstream cars in this Top 10 list, and one to surprise us all is the tenth-generation Honda Civic which finished in sixth place. It’s the cheapest car in the list, but its modern exterior trickles into the cabin, a redemption over the uninspiring and easily forgotten ninth-gen Civic. The other mainstream car in the top ten is the Nissan Maxima, which we don’t get in Malaysia.2016 Honda Civic Bangkok Motor Show - AutoBuzz.my
