2021 Chevrolet Corvette Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.9

The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette earns good marks for its interior. The cabin is spacious and trimmed with high-end materials, the seats are comfortable, and there’s above-average cargo space for a sports car. The infotainment system is mostly user-friendly, but the climate controls require some familiarization.

  • "The leather is the best quality we've seen in a Corvette, and the cabin is quiet enough to whisper across at 80 mph. The steering wheel places your hands in awkward positions during cornering, but we appreciate the clear view of the instrument cluster it affords." -- Motor Trend (2020)
  • "A more universally welcome development: massively improved interior materials. Soft-touch padding everywhere, richly pigmented leathers, perfect stitching and purposeful, tactile hardware are evident all over. … When first introduced, the outgoing C7's interior was lauded as a major step forward for Corvette kind. Indeed, it was, but that was admittedly a low bar, as past cabins were long on cheapness … and short on charm. The new cockpit feels many streets ahead of its predecessor." -- CNET (2020)
  • "Our car, a well-equipped example with the $11,950 3LT package, boasted supple, tautly sewn leather on most of its interior surfaces. … You sit farther forward compared with the seating position in the C7, though the view over the deep instrument panel isn't as panoramic as it is in some other mid-engine cars. The wall-like cabin divider that houses the climate controls looks obtrusive but isn't. The odd squared-off steering wheel is, surprisingly, as easy to use as a circular one, and it provides a clear view of the programmable digital gauge cluster. … Overall, this is by far the best Corvette interior ever." -- Car and Driver (2020)

Cargo

The Chevrolet Corvette has a front and rear trunk with a total of 12.6 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s more than what most luxury sports cars offer. The front trunk is roomy enough for a carry-on bag, while the rear trunk can accommodate two carry-ons or a golf club bag.

  • "Cargo space is limited, but golf clubs still fit in the back, and the front trunk (frunk) offers a deep well that'll easily hold a carry-on suitcase." -- Car and Driver
  • "Chevrolet says the Corvette can accommodate up to two standard golf bags in the rear compartment." -- Kelley Blue Book (2020)
  • "Luggage room, a strength of recent Corvettes, falls 16.7% to 12.5 cubic feet. The midengined layout cost the accommodating hatchback of previous 'Vettes, so the total is divided between a rear trunk and carry-on size compartment in the nose. On the other hand, the upcoming convertible doesn’t lose any luggage space and will be bigger than [what] the 2019 convertible had." -- The Detroit Free Press (2020)

Seating

The Chevrolet Corvette is a two-seat sports car. The seats are well-cushioned, and there’s plenty of room for taller drivers and passengers to sit comfortably. Leather upholstery is standard. Heated and ventilated seats are available.

There are three styles of seats – GT1, GT2, and Competition Sport – and each has progressively more bolstering to hold you in place during aggressive cornering. Outward visibility is good to the front and sides of the car, but rear visibility is slim.

The Corvette does not have LATCH car-seat connectors. We do not recommend installing a child car seat in the front seat of any vehicle.

  • "Settling into the driver’s side, I was impressed with the comfort and support of the sport seat. It holds firmly but with enough cushion to ensure that whether you’re on a long road trip, daily commute or hustling the car at a track day, you’ll be well cared for." -- Kelley Blue Book (2020)
  • "The GT2 chairs in our test car were soft in the right places yet wonderfully supportive for amped-up cornering. This is a car you can drive anytime, anywhere -- including clear across the country -- without it tiring you out." -- Car and Driver (2020)
  • "And despite the extreme driver-focused nature of the cockpit, the high side sills, shallow glass and the firewall directly behind my noggin, the 2020 Corvette doesn't strike me as at all claustrophobic. At 5 feet, 9 inches tall, I'm not exactly NBA material, but I have plenty of headroom (even for a helmet) and find it easy to get comfortable quickly in my 3LT-spec tester's heated and cooled midrange GT2 buckets." -- CNET (2020)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette include an 8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, two USB ports, HD Radio, satellite radio, a 10-speaker stereo, a Wi-Fi hot spot, a 12-inch digital gauge cluster, keyless entry, push-button start, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, and rear parking sensors.

The touch-screen infotainment system is easy to reach and even easier to use, thanks to its crisp graphics, simple menus, and snappy response times. The climate controls may take a little bit of practice though. These buttons cascade down from the dashboard in a line, and they can be tough to see in direct sunlight.

Available features include a navigation system, a 14-speaker stereo, wireless device charging, a performance data and video recorder with a forward-facing camera, a rearview mirror with an integrated camera, a head-up display, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert.

  • "Not only is the squared-off steering wheel within easy reach, so, too, are a set of pleasingly cold-to-the-touch metal paddle shifters with a satisfying clack-clack to their action. And it's not just the flappy transmission levers -- the 'Vette's crisp 8-inch infotainment screen is unusually close at hand. It's barely a couple of inches removed from your right digits, seemingly accessible without any additional reach whatsoever. For a serious high-performance machine with so much horsepower and speed potential, the fact that one's hands needn't stray far from the wheel seems like a very good development." -- CNET (2020)
  • "The cockpit is definitely driver focused, the graphics on the instruments and the center infotainment screen are crisp and clearly rendered in high definition, as are the readouts in the head-up display. The buttons that we worried about have some interesting indentations, almost like Braille, that will allow drivers to quickly identify them, without looking, after a bit of practice." -- Kelley Blue Book (2020)
  • "The big, dramatic waterfall of buttons is pretty to look at, but the glossy finish on the black buttons renders them unreadable in sunlight." -- Road and Track (2020)
