Quality means something a little different to each shopper, so in The Car Connection's reviews, we discuss vehicle quality in every dimension--styling, performance, safety, features, and fuel economy.
Nowhere is it more important than in the space available to people and their belongings. That's why the discussion of "comfort and quality" here at TCC covers those topics, along with fit and finish, space, storage, and utility--everything aside from the drivetrain and suspension that affects how they use it.
Our comfort and quality rating sums up our opinions of how much passenger space is available, and how well the car uses that space; how much storage is available, and how useful it is; how flexible it is with seating and storage; and finally, how finely it's finished, within its class and in the spectrum of cars and trucks.
Because it's such a broad definition, we're splitting it two ways. Here, you can find out which vehicles have the most appealing interiors in their classes, with the best fit and finishes applied to a design that coordinates with the vehicle's mission and with its price. (We also include trucks and SUVs in this list about "cars".)
In a separate list, we show you which vehicles earn the highest scores for space, storage, and utility--how useful they are, in other words.
We give relatively few vehicles a perfect score for comfort and quality; those are bolded among the near-perfect ratings shown here, a fairly long list that encompasses everything from pickup trucks to ultra-luxury sports cars.
These are our favorite 2015 models when it comes to appeal, comfort, fit and finish--divided by body style, and grouped on either side of the $50,000 base price point.
