When buying a car, you look at its practicality, fuel efficiency, comfort and styling. All these are unquestionably important but it’s easy to forget where you spend all most of your time – on the inside. A pleasant interior will leave the driver more relaxed and make you feel special whenever you’re sat in it.
The cars listed below have one common theme – their interiors are an exceptional place to spend many hours in. Don’t forget, you can put any of these cars in our car configurator to see how much carwow could help you save.
The Mercedes S-Class is one of the most technologically advanced saloon cars in the world. It’s very spacious for all occupants especially in long wheelbase form and to top all that, it comes with a great array of engines and is very engaging to drive.
In addition to being fitted with some of the most cutting edge equipment, it’s made with the very highest quality materials possible. A sculpted dashboard houses two large screens that relay information to the driver, while electrically adjustable seats contort to any shape to ensure maximum comfort.

While some might think the Mulsanne – Bentley’s flagship model – isn’t the prettiest car to look at, its interior is arguably one of the best ever made. The attention to detail is simply stunning – more than 10 cows have given their lives for the upholstery, the infotainment screen appears elegantly from behind the dashboard and the iPod connector is housed in a leather-lined chrome drawer.
Despite its vast 6.75-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol engine, it’s an extremely quiet car and the supple suspension makes it a very comfortable and ‘wafty’ driving experience. As you’d expect in a Bentley, and the running cost aren’t for the faint-hearted.

The interior is one of the finest ever fitted to any car and the attention to detail boggles the mind. Each nut and bolt is made from titanium and the gear-selector features an exposed linkage just so the mechanical click of a gear being selected can be heard. It’s an excellent car, but one that’ll set you back nearly a million pounds.
Aston Martin Vanquish
It’s powered by a 6.0-litre V12 making 568hp and produces a sound that could rival any world-class opera singer. The cabin is spacious and even comes with a reasonably sized boot that’s usable for trips to the grocery shop.

The Range Rover excels off-road while bathing the passengers in limitless amounts of luxury. The interior design is to be marvelled at – high quality materials and a minimalist design bring an air of classiness to proceedings.
As before, the Range Rover is among the very best off road and, thanks to the drastic 400kg weight saving over the previous model, efficiency and handling have been improved without detriment to comfort or refinement. It’s still a car that weighs more than two-tonnes, though, so don’t expect wallet-friendly running costs.

Rolls-Royce is synonymous with exquisite luxury and the flagship Phantom embodies this perfectly. The leather comes from bulls, not cows, reportedly because they don’t get pregnant and stretch. The rear seating position obscures rear seat occupants behind the C-pillar as a way of cocooning them from the outside world.
All manner of rear seat layouts are offered ranging from a three-person bench seat to two individual chairs with pull-out tray tables and a fridge. You even get an umbrella in the door side to help beat the rain, just like a Skoda Superb.
The latest BMW 7-Series is the brand’s most technologically advanced saloon yet and will rival the Mercedes S-Class. It’s bigger than its predecessor meaning there’s more space inside plus a larger boot for good measure.
It gets ‘Laserlight’ laser headlight tech also found on the BMW i8 supercar and comes with a world-first feature known as ‘Parking Assistant’ which allows the car to get into and out of a bay parking space without the driver actually being in the car. It also gets rear collision prevention, autonomous traffic jam steering and all the usual luxury gadgets.
The Audi Q7 has one of the best interiors the Ingolstadt-based brand has ever designed. The dashboard is wonderfully simple and built from fantastic materials. It comes with Audi’s ‘Virtual Cockpit’ that lets you configure the instrument binnacle to your tastes. It’s all controlled via a touchpad and control wheel to minimise the amount of buttons required.
The new Q7 shaves over 300kg of weight over the existing model making it more fuel efficient and faster in the process. It’s also smaller than the outgoing model while still being just as practical.

Bentley Continental Flying Spur
Like the Bentley Mulsanne, the Continental Flying Spur has one of the most luxurious interiors on the marketplace. Despite ranking lower in Bentley’s food chain, it still has the premium quilted leather and elegantly designed dashboard you’d expect in a car costing this much.
It’s based on the Continental GT, meaning it’s a comfortable cruiser yet, when the road gets twisty, it’s more than happy to handle a few corners. It comes with the same 4.0-litre V8 or 6.0-litre W12 as the Continental meaning there’s plenty of power on-tap whenever you need it.

The Audi A8 is luxurious enough to warrant its position as a rival to Rolls-Royces and Bentleys. Like other Audis, build quality and refinement is unassailable along with the range of technology on offer. For instance, the LED headlights can shut down individual sections of light meaning you can keep full-beam on without glaring oncoming traffic.
There are a few engines available with the most fuel efficient diesel achieving nearly 50mpg on average yet can accelerate to 62mph form rest in under six seconds. There’s also a 4.0-litre V8 and a 6.3-litre W12 if you want some extra poke.
