Chevrolet Camaro Interior
The 2017 Camaro feels much better than in recent years, but it is not quite a class leader. The front seats are more comfortable and appurtenant than before, but the Dinky backseats are strictly for small children or tumbler. Visibility is still a literal and figurative blind for the Camaro, with a high beltline and low roof that combine to prevent external visibility in all directions. Limited light enters the cabin through the closed windows, and the interior can feel dark and heavy. A canopy is a potential solution, but it lowers the interior ceiling significantly.
Chevy, the tachometer, speedometer and central driver information screen mingle into a complete group for a cleaner, more modern look. GM’s incorporation of its latest touchscreen interface is user-friendly, especially with regard to the integration of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It’s more responsive and looks sharper than previous MyLink systems.
