Expert Quotes:

Hefty outside, tight inside, like most sports coupes.
USA Today

The ride quality of the Camaro doesn't even rate a comparison with the lesser Mustang
Car and Driver

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

the overall feel of the interior is a bit tight
Popular Mechanics

Tall drivers and passengers should know that headroom is in short supply, regardless of whether or not you order the optional sunroof
ConsumerGuide

While the Camaro is a design homerun for many buyers, comfort and convenience may come up a bit short--particularly for taller occupants. The front seats, while very comfortable even on long trips, particularly in the SS model, don't leave much headroom for six-foot-plus adults, especially when the optional sunroof is equipped, lowering clearance from the already low roof. Entry and exit can also be tough due to the low roof.

The high beltline, on the other hand, hinders visibility for drivers of more normal height; all the more so for shorter drivers. Rearward visibility is compromised for all drivers with thick rear roof supports and a small rear window. The rear seats are small, and best suited to children.

Hard plastics and dull finishes aren't dominant in the Camaro's interior, but they are perhaps a bit more prominent than they should be, making the overall feel a bit dreary. SS models equipped with bright-color interior inserts help liven up the look, but the materials issues remain. Despite these complaints, everything appears to be well-assembled, with no squeaks, creaks, or rattles intruding on the experience.

Ride quality and cabin noise in general are also very good in the 2012 Camaro, with rough roads smoothed out and tire and wind noise kept to a minimum. The engines, on the other hand, are easily noticed, but that's probably how you'd want it.

Conclusion

Though it's not the best environment for taller drivers, and there's no surplus of cargo space, the 2012 Chevy Camaro is comfortable, quiet, and generally well-built.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
