ATLANTA — Factoring in style, comfort, design, and technology, Autotrader editors selected a group of 10 new vehicles that are priced below $50,000 and feature modern, stylish interiors.

“The interior design of a vehicle has become more important than ever before with automakers packing more technology into every model and finding creative ways to make cars in all price ranges feel luxurious,” said Tara Trompeter, managing editor of Autotrader. “To ensure consumers get the most bang for their buck, we looked at the latest models that offer thoughtfully planned, versatile interiors with no feature or detail overlooked.”

Unranked and listed in alphabetical order, Autotrader’s list of the 10 Best Car Interiors Under $50,000 includes:

Audi TT: “Striking a perfect balance between performance and luxury, this sporty coupe is premium in every sense of the word. Standout features include a flat-bottom steering wheel, integrated climate control, and digital cockpit that turns the dashboard into a giant screen.”

Genesis G70: “New to the competitive luxury sports sedan scene, the Genesis G70 is making a fabulous entrance. Controls on the interior are pleasing to use, ranging from the audio controls to the available wireless charging pad. Even opting for the high-end Prestige package, which adds quilted Nappa leather seats, comes in under the $50,000 mark, making the G70 a great value.”

Honda Accord: “Making consumers feel like they are in a more expensive vehicle, the luxurious, range-topping Accord comes with high-end features, including head-up display, leather seats that are heated and ventilated in front, heated back seats, and wireless charging.”

Hyundai Kona: “The Hyundai Kona offers an interior design that ranges from subdued to flashy, featuring a brightly colored interior trim and two-tone seats or all black for a more conservative look. Premium features include an 8-inch infotainment system with navigation, Infinity premium audio, and a head-up display.”

Lincoln Nautilus: “Previously known as the Lincoln MKX, the Lincoln Nautilus brings a refreshed interior that includes active noise cancelation, a comfortable ride at any speed, and a versatile interior with massaging front seats.”

• Lexus RC: “Refreshed for 2019, the Lexus RC sports a comfortable interior with nice finishing touches like an analog clock and brushed metal accents throughout the vehicle. The infotainment screen is conveniently placed near the driver’s armrest that is easy to use while operating the vehicle.”

• Mazda3: “The all-new 2019 model features an 8.8-inch infotainment system with new, more ergonomic controls and premium materials. Other perks like the driver seat-tilt adjustment make this little car a perfect fit for any driver.”

Nissan Kicks: “Featuring fun colors like charcoal gray and orange, the Nissan Kicks adds a colorful perk to the modern interior design. The vehicle is also equipped with a ‘floating’ infotainment system, flat-bottom steering wheel and Bose speakers built into the driver’s headrest. Talk about kicking it in style!”

• Ram 1500: “The Ram 1500 Laramie can come equipped with leather seating, Alpine premium audio, heated and ventilated front seats, and a 7-inch driver information center with 3D graphics. The vehicle also features a 12-inch infotainment screen system which is the largest in its class.”

• Volvo XC40: “The Volvo XC40 is breaking barriers with an edgy new design on the inside and out. Featuring unconventional center stacks, glove compartment folding hooks, and an available crystal shifter, the Volvo XC40 is definitely a stand out compact luxury crossover that offers something different for drivers.”
