The Autumn edition of Car Design News' quarterly interior design magazine Interior Motives is out now, featuring in-depth explorations of the very best interior designs from the recent Beijing, Paris and Moscow auto show

Stories include the ground-breaking first concept from the newly launched, China-only Denza brand, created by Daimler and BYD to tap into the growing desire for luxury family cars, and Audi's Crosslane Coupé, which showcases the marque's new design philosophy. Also included in the latest edition is the full story behind the all-new Range Rover - widely considered to be the best SUV ever built - and the innovative Onyx concept shown by Peugeot at the Paris motor show.

Combined with an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the development of Lada's XRay (a stake in the ground by new design boss Steve Mattin) and a report from the 2012 Interior Motives Design Awards, the Autumn issue is essential reading for anyone working in automotive design.

Interior Motives also recently marked its tenth anniversary with a special, one-off issue created to celebrate a decade of cutting-edge interior design. In an industry first, it gathered together some of the most respected names in car design who - together with CDN and Interior Motives editorial staff - compiled a league table of the top ten concept interiors from the last decade. The judges included Audi's Enzo Rothfuss, Thomas Bürkle of Hyundai Europe, BMW's Oliver Heilmer, Toyota/Lexus General Manager of Design Simon Humphries, JAC Italy's Lou Tik, Pratap Bose of TATA, Chrysler Group interior design boss Klaus Busse, and Richard Chung of Johnson Controls.

Inside this very special issue of the magazine you'll find exclusive in-depth interviews with all of these influential designers, who give insights into why these rival carmakers' concepts represent great design, and find out which car emerged as the industry's favourite interior of the decade. Like the autumn issue, this limited-edition collector's item is available for purchase here. Alternatively, you can buy a year's subscription or download any of the back issues for your iPad by browsing for Interior Motives in Apple's App Store.
