Crossovers: The Best Interiors

We pick the best driver-oriented and comfortable crossover interiors.

Nissan Murano

The mid-sized Murano is a premium crossover. Step inside, and you’ll find an extremely comfortable passenger cabin. There’s enough space for five thanks mostly to the NASA-inspired ‘Zero-Gravity” seats. There’s a lot of headroom and legroom for front and rear passengers as well. Smartphone connectivity and a rearview camera are sold as standard with the Murano.

Toyota Highlander

This family-focused mid-size crossover features extremely well-appointed interiors. It seats up to eight across its three rows but also has optional captain seats to replace the middle bench to reduce capacity to seven. Comfort levels are high, there’s a lot of cabin space, there are several practical cubbies and pockets for storage, and it’s all well-built. There’s also a rear-seat entertainment system to cancel boredom on road trips.

Buick Enclave

It may be priced high, but one look at its interiors, and you’ll want to spend a lot of time in here. It’s a quiet, mature crossover, and the interiors look the part. The seats are comfortable, and the cabin space is generous, and there are a lot of options on offer. The infotainment system is a bit fussy, but you get used to it. It also has a Wi-Fi hotspot for easy on-the-go connectivity.

Cadillac XT5

This mid-size luxury crossover is powered by a relatively efficient 310 hp engine, and it is a sharp-looking thing. The interior is generously appointed with genuine wood, carbon fiber, suede, and everything feels premium. The seats are comfortable but snug for larger passengers.

Audi Q5

This compact crossover may be a little smaller than the others on this list, but it is a worthy addition. It has enough space for five, and even the rear seats slide and recline. There’s a standard panoramic sunroof to make the Q5 seem airy. Quality is excellent and feels built to last. There’s smartphone compatibility and tri-zone climate control as well.

Kia Sportage

Yes, there’s a Kia on this list. Budget cars can have great interiors too. This five-passenger crossover has a cabin that’s beautifully insulated from the outside, making it feel premium. The materials are all of high quality, and the color and design make it look and feel really upmarket. The rear seats recline, and the optional panoramic sunroof seals the deal.
