2018 Chevrolet Camaro Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.5

The 2018 Chevrolet Camaro has nice interior styling, but the materials quality is a step below rivals’ cabins. The front seats are supportive, but the rear seats are tiny. The trunk is also undersized. There are plenty of useful tech features, however, and the MyLink infotainment system is terrific.

  • "The 2017 Camaro interior is a combination of clever touches, cool styling and occasionally so-so materials. The clever touches include climate controls that reduce dash clutter by using the trim rings around the center vents to control temperature and fan speed. The design integrates classic and modern elements seamlessly. … The materials used are still not up to the level of the Ford Mustang or Dodge Challenger." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)
  • "Materials quality, while improved, isn't the best. Some of the buttons and dials look substantial at first glance, but then they feel flimsy and cheap to the touch. Thankfully, Chevy has integrated the tachometer, speedometer and central driver information screen into one complete group for a cleaner, more modern look." -- Edmunds (2017)
  • "The richly appointed interior (material quality is noticeably improved) is a fresh, modernized update of the traditional 'twin binnacle' Camaro look." -- Automobile Magazine (2016)

Seating

The Camaro seats four people and comes standard with cloth upholstery, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a six-way power-adjustable front-passenger seat, and a leather-wrapped flat-bottom steering wheel. Leather upholstery, heated and cooled seats, Recaro sport seats, and a heated steering wheel are available.

The front seats are comfortable and have enough support for longer drives. The rear seats are mostly for show, however. They’re too cramped for almost anyone to sit comfortably. Visibility is also poor thanks to the small windows.

For installing child safety seats, a full set of LATCH hardware is mounted in both rear seats. The upper tether anchors are easy to locate, but the lower anchors are a bit cumbersome. They're buried deep in the seat, and clipping in a car seat requires a little extra elbow grease.

  • "The front seats are more comfortable and supportive than before, but the dinky backseats are strictly for small children or contortionists. Visibility is still a literal and figurative blind spot for the Camaro, with a high beltline and a low roof that combine to hinder outward visibility in all directions. Limited light enters the cabin through the narrow windows, so the interior can feel dark and claustrophobic. A sunroof is a potential solution but it lowers the interior ceiling significantly." -- Edmunds (2017)
  • "The front seats offered great comfort during extended stints behind the wheel, which was just the thing for a 5-hour drive from Detroit to Indianapolis. We honestly think the rear seat is uninhabitable once a driver taller than 5 feet 6 inches is comfortably seated in front." -- Autotrader (2016)
  • "You won't be able to see much of anything to the sides or rear, the forward view is severely pinched by the gauge-cluster hood, and the standard 7.0-inch touch screen is curiously tilted downward and therefore can be difficult to read. The base seats, however, are quite comfortable and well bolstered, and the small-diameter flat-bottom steering wheel is a delight to wield." -- Car and Driver (2016)

Interior Features

Standard features in the Camaro include automatic climate control, a six-speaker audio system, satellite radio, two USB ports, Teen Driver, a rearview camera, and the MyLink infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and voice activation. OnStar with 4G LTE and a Wi-Fi hot spot also comes standard.

Available features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a nine-speaker Bose audio system, wireless smartphone charging, a customizable 8-inch driver information display in the gauge cluster, a head-up display, blind spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, rear cross traffic alert, and an upgraded MyLink system with an 8-inch touch screen.

Including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard is nice; they're optional or unavailable in some rivals. Wireless device charging is a useful optional feature as well. The real highlight of the features list is the MyLink infotainment system. It’s intuitive and user-friendly, and the touch screen responds quickly to inputs. There are also physical controls for audio and climate functions, and they’re easily reachable from the driver’s seat.

  • "Chevy's MyLink infotainment system is one of the best with quick response and a very intuitive interface." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "GM's incorporation of its latest touchscreen interface is user-friendly, especially considering the integration of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It's more responsive and sharper-looking than previous MyLink systems." -- Edmunds (2017)
  • "Climate-control temperature and fan speed are adjusted simply by twisting the outer rings of the two central air vents—a brilliant touch. Pedals are perfectly placed for heel-and-toe downshifting." -- Automobile Magazine (2016)

Cargo

Whether it's the coupe or convertible, the Camaro has a small trunk. Coupes have 9.1 cubic feet of trunk space, and convertibles have 7.3 cubic feet. If the small trunk wasn’t bad enough, the Camaro also has a narrow trunk opening and a high liftover height. A folding rear seat and a power trunk release are standard.

  • "At 9.1 cubic feet, the Camaro's trunk has not only the smallest volume in the segment, but it also has a tiny opening and high liftover height, too. If you ever wondered why tourists who rent Camaro convertibles put their suitcases in the back seat, this is why." -- Edmunds
  • "From a cargo standpoint, the trunk features high lift-over access and has suitable space for approximately two roll-aboard and two computer cases." -- Autotrader (2016)
  • "The trunk is small, a shortcoming exacerbated by a very small opening." -- USA Today (2016)
