2023 Chevrolet City Express : Interior
The LT is a cosmetic step up from the interior of the basic City Express. The radio and most of the controls are simple and easy to use. Most people will find the front seat very accessible. The low-load floor in the cargo area is a plus. Visibility is a serious minus, even with a rear-view camera. Large windshields with additional low-sight glasses increase front/side visibility, as do large side mirrors with blind spot bubbles. Otherwise, visibility is limited to windowless side panel doors. A squeaky business van is forgivable up to a point, especially when empty. Some parts of the trim flex when the door handles are pulled. The standard head unit of the City Express features AM/FM reception, a CD slot, Bluetooth connectivity, and an auxiliary input that plays through two door-mounted speakers.
