Detroit, Michigan – Ward’s has named its 10 Best Interiors list for 2011, selected from 51 all-new or significantly upgraded vehicles.

The winners are the Audi A8, BMW X3 xDrive35i, Chevrolet Cruze 2LT RS, Dodge Charger Rallye Plus, Ford Focus Titanium, Honda Odyssey Elite, Hyundai Elantra Limited, Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit, Kia Optima EX and Volvo S60.

The company said that it had never evaluated so many vehicles for any competition in the past.

Highlights included Audi’s high-gloss wood and suede inserts, an easier-to-use iDrive controller in the BMW, soft-touch surfaces and bolstered seats in the Cruze, and the angular door panels and floating centre stack in the Volvo S60.

The awards will be handed out at a special ceremony in Dearborn, Michigan in May.
