The new BMW X6 M was just named as a winner in the annual Wards 10 Best Interiors list for 2020. SUVs and CUVs make up seven of the 10 honorees – the first time so many utility vehicles have dominated – leaving only two sedans and a coupe to fill out this year’s list.
Other premium automakers to make the list are Audi with its e-tron model, Mercedes-Benz with the GLB and Bentley with the Flying Spur. The ranking focused on achievement in aesthetics, comfort, ergonomics, materials usage, fit-and-finish and user-friendliness of displays and controls.
Wards editors selected the best interiors from a list of 32 nominated vehicles with all-new or significantly redesigned cabins available in the U.S. There is no price cap for 10 Best Interiors, but value is a factor.

- Audi e-tron ($85,790)
