Comfort is one of the 2011 Corvette's strong suits in its class, with well-shaped and supportive seats, plenty of headroom and legroom—once you lower yourself down into the car—and more storage space than you'd expect, thanks to the hatchback-like rear access in the coupe models. The convertible lacks this storage space, but adds cubbies behind the seats to help stow your gear.
It's a two-seater, of course, but both driver and passenger get more shoulder and hip room than in a typical sports car due to the Corvette's wide stance. The materials in the cabin are much improved over previous C5-generation Corvettes, though those seeking the best in comfort will still want to opt for the optional leather package.
The sound of the big V-8 engine isn't intrusive at all within the cockpit until you really open the throttle, making it a solid bet for long road trips. Wind and road noise are present, but well within the expected range for the sports car class.
