The earliest cars – those of more than a century ago – had no interior. There may have been a tufted cushion, and perhaps a rudimentary canvas cover, but for the most part you pretty much rode on the car, rather than in it. Oh how times have changed. Today, your car ‘s or truck’s – hell, especially some of the trucks – interior can be a home away from home, providing you with automatic climate control, Internet access and a place to warm or cool a tasty beverage. Your college dorm should have been so nice.
It’s not just amenities that have evolved over the decades, the materials, styling, and ergonomics have also seen several paradigm shifts over the years. Most of that is driven by the fact that we spend so darn much time in out cars that they better be both aesthetically and functionally pleasing. Today I want to know which car’s interior, in your opinion, possesses the the most alluring matchup of those aspects.
Do you shun the broad panoply of amenities now offered on cars for a more visceral appeal of the old school style over function approach, such as was the norm from about the mid ’30s on through the ’60s? Or, is convenience and gee-whiz technology turned tangible in soft-touch plastic more your bag? Whichever your poison, what car or truck do you think has the most awesome factory interior
