Which $20K-25K car has the best (LEAST amount of hard plastic shit) interior? Currently looking for a daily driver that's nice to look at from the inside, where I'll obviously be spending most of my time. Don't really care about engine, tranny or make desu
Pic kinda related, almost no plastic in sight
Really out of all the cars I've been in VW's consistently have the nicest interior for the price. It just seems more refined and thought out.
Almost all american cars are plastic pieces of shit that get thrown together with the cheapest materials possible.
Jap econoboxes like a camry or an accord are nice, even civics have a pretty good interior design.
Still though, for that price range VW seems to stand out. It feels like they actually put thought into it rather than throwing some shit in.
You can buy a mid-90s Bentley Brooklands with low mileage for that price.
Yeah, no. Pic related, look at all this fucking plastic.
>b-b-but it's HIGH QUALITY p-plastic I swear
These are okay suggestions I guess but I'm looking for a somewhat less expensive too maintain kinda car
Why were old car interiors so comfy looking. Literally a couch with a steering wheel. Also, why the fuck did Cadillac have to be made by GM ;_;
Some sort of cloth, I don't know the details. The previous owner drove to Tijuana in the 90s to have it done. I got rid of all the diamond tuck stuff except the seats. I don't really mind vinyl, I had black vinyl seats in my Nova, had more of an issue burning my arm on chrome stuff and the shifter than the seat being too hot.
Reread the opening post...
>(LEAST amount of hard plastic shit)
I'd second VW. Pretty much everything you'll touch besides buttons on a regular basis is a nice soft touch plastic or leather (or leatherette/pleather). It gives the car a nice classy feel even though it's an econobox.
I have direct experience with VW's products, but I will admit lately Honda has stepped up their interior game for what I've seen.
You're not gonna find a car without plastics in its interior unless you want something from the 50s.
Fuck I know man. I recently stepped in my uncle's 2013 Audi A6 and I was un-pleasantly surprised by the lack of leather on the dashboard and doors. Welp, I guess I'm gonna settle for a newer Cadillac or 300 or some shit
Well, apparently I do since I've already some vag group cars and other brands also.
VW plastics are crap. And that miracle you call softouch is bound to after a couple of years flaking and becoming tacky.
VW interiors are crap. And that isn't even arguable. Maybe only Renault can do worse.
That's like you're opinion, man.
Before my Mk7 Golf I have a Mk4 Jetta. Loved that interior too, and it never flaked or became tacky.
I will say the Mk5s had some questionable interior design choices and materials used but that was fixed with the Mk6s.
You may dislike VW interiors, and I may like them. At the end of the day it's a preference. If you can't understand that then I don't know what to say.
>your dream car
I'd put it more like you haven't tried enough different interiors to come to the conclusion.
This photo isn't mine, and the same exact thing happened to my last passat. And mind you, I take great care with my cars and I am not a slob.
This isn't quality. This is crappy plastics made by the lowest bidder that could simulate some quality.
The door handles were much worse. And the centre console was just an horror. This last VW I ended up sanding the plastics and refinishing them.
Never had anything similar happen. Not even in a Citroen C5.
Cool story bro. Remind me how that doesn't happen to other cars?
What year Passat? Looks like the B6, which was designed right around when the Mk5 Golfs came out, which was also when VW's interior quality took a dive. They've came back from those days.
get a volvo broseph. here's my 2005 S60R's interior. you could get a super nice one of these for $10k and have a shit ton of money left over for an exhaust system, tune, intercooler etc. that would make it an excellent DD. I get 29 mpg highway out of a 400 horsepower sedan thanks to the intercooler and exhaust.
OP here, how did I forget about Volvo. They actually have great looking interior, not sure why I didn't think of them. Lots of plastic in yours but my friend used to have an older s80 and it was pretty nice. Pretty fast as well
most of the black is soft touch leather except for some of the dash stuff. even the plastic is incredibly high quality. like look at the thing, 11 years old and still looks incredible. even the steering wheel still feels new. if you would get a v70r you'd have probably the sickest wagon ever. look into one. seats are incredibly comfortable as well. and R's are incredibly fun to drive.
I think some late model Buicks have leather wrapped dash also.
Who cares about hard plastic? Are you rubbing your pussy all over the dash?

>I think some late model Buicks have leather wrapped dash also.
Can't seem to find any good pictures but the Lacrosse does seem to have a leather wrapped dash? Damn son, I think we got a winner
I like the Acura TL interiors.. A bit of 'hard' plastic but overall a very premium feel
I once had to drive a rental Chevy Malibu (champagne color w/ New Jersey plates to boot) and the inside of it looked like it was meant to be cleaned out with a hose. Fucking awful hard, hard, pebbled plastic EVERYWHERE. The entire dash and even worse were the doors. Ugh, I can't believe anyone would buy that car based on the plastic interior alone
late 90's XJ vanden plas
lincoln town car
90's bentley landbarges that can be found in lots for like 9k and 70k miles (remaining money is most definitely for maintenance)
or buy a 70's landbarge like a fleetwood and use the remaining money for gas
>lincoln town car
wat. Other than that, good suggestions
What is furniture other than an appliance to support weight? When you really think about it, boxes and floormattresses are really all you ever need. Less stuff to break, you know? Keep it simple.
that's a 2008 im talking earlier
bentleys in op's price range
I really like my GTI, but I have to say interior quality was my lowest priority when choosing a car and it's really not great. It handle great and runs perfectly at nearly 100k but it's not a great interior.
>that's a 2008 im talking earlier
Other than the steering wheel cover, what ISN'T made of plastic?. Not gonna look it up but I'm 99,99% sure the "wood" grain inserts aren't real wood either
I know but I feel like they were fucked by GMs obsession with badge engineering from the 80s up until the Art and Science era. Too many FWD pieces of shit. Not that Ferd or Chryslel were any better tho
