I posted another thread comparing the QX50 based on exterior styling, but what about the interior? You will see your car from the inside out 95% of the time so its important especially in a luxury vehicle to make the driver not only comfortable but also engaged. An ugly interior can ruin your day to day experience with a vehicle while a good interior can make many men forgive many faults....

QX50:





X3:





Evoque:





Q5:





GLK:






In typical BMW fashion the X3 places last for interior styling, black, black and more black. Very possibly the most uninspiring gauges ever produced. The GLK does not fair much better here either, although i do like Mercedes use of wood and two tone through the cabin, I like the Mercedes vents as they are truely original. However the GLK does get my vote for best gauges.

The Q5 fares a little better than its German counterparts, using materials and tones slightly better than the two other Germans. However the Q5 still suffers from Volkswagen syndrome but does a good enough job of trying to distance itself from its lineage.

QX50s interior looks a little dated what with the copious use of rounded edges however keep in mind this is the same interior and exterior design since 2009. as a nearly 5 year old design the QX50 holds its own very well, the leather looks creamy and the centrestack is not too cluttered. My one pet peave with the QX50 is the screen functions are located so high on the little plateau under the nav screen that it makes using them a little of a pain.

The Evoque wins the interior styling contest as well. Butter soft leather, bolstered buckets front and back and an ergonomic centre stack and controls that make mode switching or radio surfing a breeze. Not to mention the typical British class that shows itself throughout the Evoques interior.

In a perfect world if you could mash up one interior and one exterior styling which one would it be? I like the Evoque as it is but if it really came down to it I'd like an Evoque interior in a QX50 exterior, the curves always win!

How about you?

GLK and BMW seem to have the nicest interiors to me. QX50 is also nice though. i like the wood finish in the BMW interior, but the QX50 looks the most comfortable.

Really don't like the outside of the GLK though. I am not a fan of that boxy looking SUV look they have going on.

The navigation screen also looks the best in the Infiniti.

having the chance to sit in many of them. I would say in person the most impressive are the Evoque and GLK. In terms of interior.

The more square styling of the Evoque interior seems more modern to me. I think that all of these interiors are pretty nice, but if I have to split hairs I think the Evoque wins. Though i would not choose those orange/brown leather seats for the Evoque. The white in the first picture looks much better, and black leather is always a sure-fire bet for the interior of any car.

The red for the evoque is also very nice. They also have some pretty nice seats for the Evoque in UK.

The one interior I least enjoy visually is the BMW.

Their interiors are too plain.

Yeah thats one area BMW fails big time. Back in the early 2000's their interiors seemed amazing, especially the 7 series but as time went they just failed to keep up with the rest of the industry. Even lexus is now bettter.

Yea Audi has really looked the same for quite a while now. I find their designs the least interesting of the German car makers. They still look nice but they just don't look quite as forward thinking as others.

It still amazes me at how BMW continues to fail to design a better interior.
So far Infiniti, Mercedes and Range Rover are the best

Seems like the GLK and Qx50 is the only ones to hold appealing interiors. The rest of them are still the same old boring plain design.

they look nicer in person but still very bland. the same goes for Audi interiors in my opinion.

but these are all opinions.

Sitting in the 3 different brand cars I like Mercedes the most for comfort and interior quality.
