Wards Auto Announces the 10 Best Car Interiors of 2011


Like every year, Ward’s AutoWorld magazine picks the best interiors the automotive industry has to offer. For 2011, the publication chose the 10 best interiors after editors analysed 51 vehicles that were all-new or featured significantly upgraded interior. Ward’s Auto picked the 10 winners from all segments, with the finalists including three luxury brands, three economy cars, a sport sedan, a minivan, an SUV and a family sedan.

Chrysler South Africa is proud to annouce that 2 of it’s brands walked away as winners:

  • Dodge Charger Rallye Plus
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit

“The Dodge Charger is exclusively a Left Hand Drive model and therefore not sold in South Africa but this is great evidence of our interior design team’s capabilities. Our key corporate goal is to bring significantly upgraded interiors into the South African market. The acceptance of the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee and it’s interior has proven to be a fantastic hit. The Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit is a special edition of the hugely popular Overland range and we’re hoping to see it in the South African market in the very near future.” – Trent Barcroft, CEO Chrysler South Africa.

These cars were chosen after editors completed score sheets for each one based on materials, ergonomics, safety, the human-machine interface, comfort, fit-and-finish, overall value and aesthetics.

“Auto makers are so focused on the smallest details that it’s hard to find a bad interior these days. Still, some are better than others, and we’re recognising the best of the best,” – Ward’s AutoWorld Editor-in-Chief Drew Winter.
