Hefty outside, tight inside, like most sports coupes.

disappointing are the hard plastics that we had hoped were banished from GM interiors

the overall feel of the interior is a bit tight
Tall drivers and passengers should know that headroom is in short supply, regardless of whether or not you order the optional sunroof
The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro wins praise for its comfortable front seats, but there simply isn't enough space for taller drivers, let alone passengers. Those taller than six feet will likely want to check how much clearance they have on Camaros with and without the sunroof, and the tall beltline will leave shorter drivers feeling downright claustrophobic.
It's more challenging to try to fit normal-size adults in the backseat of the 2011 Camaro. There's a small, two-position backseat, but the low roofline and narrow opening make entry and exit tough.
Although shoppers aren't likely lining up for the Camaro with cargo space in mind, it's worth pointing out that the trunk really is quite small; you won't want to bring it out for Costco runs.
While the interior looks good from a few steps back, the abundance of hard plastics and dull finishes conspire to make the Camaro's interior seem a bit dull. The design, in some opinions, doesn't match the exterior so well either. However, it's all put together really well, with no creaks or rattles over several driving experiences and hard-used test cars.
Ride quality and cabin noise remain unexpected delights in the Camaro. Its suspension does a great job in absorbing rough pavement surfaces, and tight build quality, along with good insulation and isolation, helps keep out road and wind noise—though you do hear the engines.
Provided you're not too tall and you don't have more than one passenger or big suitcases, the 2011 Chevrolet Camaro provides decent creature comforts.
