2012 Chevrolet Camaro Comfort & Quality

6.0
Comfort & Quality
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.

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.

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.
