2016 Chevrolet Camaro Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro was new.

Scorecard

Interior: 7.6

Automotive journalists say the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro's redesigned cabin is solidly built. Reviewers warn that the Chevy Camaro has very poor visibility. The Camaro's front seats are comfortable, according to critics, but not its rear seat, they say. Moreover, critics note that the trunk is very small. Auto writers praise the MyLink infotainment system for its straightforward menus, crisp display screen and handy features.

  • "The richly appointed interior (material quality is noticeably improved) is a fresh, modernized update of the traditional ‘twin binnacle’ Camaro look." -- Automobile Magazine
  • "This sixth-generation Camaro is still a singular thing with a hard-core personality, no real backseat room, a tiny trunk and the outward visibility of an Abrams tank. If practicality matters, this car doesn't deliver." -- Edmunds
  • "The materials look and feel better. There's cool new technology, like available high-definition color displays and a sophisticated ambient lighting system, yet it retains the layout and charm of a true American muscle car." -- Autoblog
  • "Build quality in a range of early production cars I sampled was also good, with solid fit and finish and no squeaks or rattles observed. Not bad, especially considering all Camaro tooling recently moved to a new home in Lansing, Michigan -- the last model was built in Ontario." -- CNET

Seating

The 2016 Chevy Camaro seats four and comes with cloth upholstery and power-adjustable front seats. Heated and ventilated front seats, leather upholstery and Recaro sport seats are optional. Due to its small windows and large rear pillars, automotive journalists agree that the Chevrolet Camaro's outward visibility is very poor. Some recommend opting for blind spot monitoring and parking assist. The front seats are comfortable, but the rear seat is incredibly small, critics report.

  • "The front seats are comfortable and there is plenty of headroom for anyone at six feet tall and under. The backseat? That's another story. With the driver's seat adjusted to my seating position, at five-foot-nine, I barely had any room for my feet, let alone my knees. It's so bad the press kit doesn't even give the head and leg room numbers for the rear seat. Expect to carry only your enemies in the back." -- Yahoo Autos
  • "Don't even consider buying a Camaro without the blind-spot alert, camera and parking assist. The car may be entirely new, but the small windows, large blind spots and limited visibility will feel familiar to anybody who drove the last generation Camaro coupe." -- USA Today
  • "The sport seats we tested are comfortable, heated and cooled, and have a good amount of bolster in the lower section. The back is cramped-we wouldn't advise living there for any long period of time." -- AutoWeek
  • "Those same greenhouse proportions -- right down to the sliver-like side mirrors and big, fat C-pillars -- means that outward visibility is frankly terrible." -- CNET

Interior Features

The 2016 Camaro's standard features include a rearview camera, Bluetooth, satellite radio, two USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a 7-inch touch screen. Available features include Chevy's voice-activated MyLink infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, a nine-speaker Boston Acoustics audio system, navigation, rear parking sensors, a head-up display and a power sunroof.

Automotive journalists are impressed with the redesigned 2016 Camaro's MyLink infotainment system, noting its user-friendly menus, sharp display screen and convenient Apple CarPlay compatibility. A few test drivers also think the climate controls are easy to use.

  • "Climate-control temperature and fan speed are adjusted simply by twisting the outer rings of the two central air vents-a brilliant touch." -- Automobile Magazine
  • "The redesigned dash moves up a notch in quality, dominated by an 8-inch touchscreen with the Chevy MyLink infotainment system and Apple CarPlay or AndroidAuto. It's fairly intuitive and easy to use with sharp graphics." -- Yahoo Autos
  • "CNET has praised Chevy's MyLink infotainment architecture in the past, and this latest iteration, accessed through an 8-inch screen, looks to be the best yet. While more time for exploration is necessary, the screen's crispness, simple graphical layout and snappy responses during my brief time with these cars suggests good things are ahead for owners, especially now that Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration are part of the picture, as is a 4G LTE-powered Wi-Fi hotspot." -- CNET
  • "The interior has several appealing new features. Apple CarPlay makes the car an extension of your iPhone, reading texts to you, playing music, making phone calls and setting navigation destinations. The much-maligned Apple Maps feature has improved immensely. It never steered me wrong." -- USA Today
  • "The 2016 Camaro is one of the first cars available with Apple's excellent CarPlay system, and we're loving it. Connecting is a matter of plugging in your phone to the USB port, and it's literally as easy to use as your iPhone.” -- Kelley Blue Book

Cargo

At just 9.1 cubic feet, critics are disappointed that the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro's trunk is even smaller than that of the outgoing model. A few also note that the trunk has a small opening.

  • "The trunk is small, a shortcoming exacerbated by a very small opening." -- USA Today
  • "Worryingly, trunk space appears somewhat smaller than last year's already tight 11.3 cubic feet, too." -- CNET
