2011 Chevrolet Corvette Comfort & Quality

8.0
Comfort & Quality

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 2011 Chevrolet Corvette's interior is clearly an area of compromise, where cost savings help translate into more performance per dollar, but the optional leather upgrade package helps solve some of those ills.

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.
