If you are in the market for a brand new car, and the interior quality and design are among your top priorities, here’s something very helpful. These are the top 10 best interiors for 2018, according to Wards Auto. A total of 40 different models, some all-new and some significantly improved for this year, were nominated, but in the end only 10 of them made it to the final list.

The editors of the publication explain that automakers are more and more treating cabins like “dazzling concepts than mainstream production cars and trucks.” This year’s winners vary from the affordable Hyundai Kona to the mighty Porsche Panamera, with prices of vehicles in the tested configurations ranging from $29,775 to $201,540. Surprisingly, red was one of the most popular interior colors with five models in the list featuring it for the seats or door panels, as main or an accent color.

“Thank you to all the interior designers who have been urging their bosses to take chances and try colors that are less predictable,” Drew Winter, Wards Auto senior content director, comments this year’s competition. “We know a lot of consumers end up buying black, gray or beige interiors, but there are also a lot of shoppers who want more excitement. This year’s class of winners will make those folks happy.”
