Wards Auto has always compiled lists of the ‘10 Best’ vehicles in any particular category, such as the 10 Best Interiors. A newer category, 10 Best User Experience, has sprung up as a subcategory of interiors as a way for the experts behind Wards Auto to further analyze the user-friendliness and design of vehicle systems such as touchscreens, infotainment, and navigation. This year, the GMC Acadia made the cut.
The category was globally varied. Including the Acadia, three American vehicles made the cut, while the rest of the list was made up of three Japanese and three German vehicles, as well as a Korean car, which demonstrated no particular country has a hold on the category.
The GMC Acadia was selected for the intuitiveness of its interface, making it easy to use for buyers new to the systems, as well as the simple elegance of its features. Navigating the touchscreen menu is a cinch to understand and functions smoothly and easily. Users can toggle between different options and even use voice commands without a hassle.
The GMC Acadia made the 10 Best User Experience list alongside big names like Mercedes, Lexus, BMW, Audi, and Infiniti – a big leap for a family hauler from GMC. However, the new 2017 Acadia was redesigned from the ground-up for modern amenities, and it seems the change has paid off.
