With a completely upgraded interior, the 2008 HUMMER H2 is finally worthy of its lofty price tag, according to reviews read by TheCarConnection.com.
You wouldn’t want to drive the 2008 HUMMER H2 on a long road trip, though. Even with the brand-new interior featuring a redesigned dash, new squared-off seats, a third-row seat for two people, and features like a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, the H2 is cramped, and the effective use of space takes a backseat to the styling.
Automobile.com fixates on the high-quality materials found throughout, noting that the "majority of surfaces not covered in leather are high-grade pliable plastic." Cars.com agrees, stating that in "addition to its more sensible, refined shapes, the dashboard features glowing blue gauges and trim that's among the best faux-metal finishes on the market."
As far as comfort goes, Car and Driver mentions that "the front seats are comfortably reshaped for 2008." That's all well and good for the driver, but Kelley Blue Book brings bad news for passengers with the statement that "the interior of the H2 is snug in the areas of rear-seat legroom and cargo space." A third-row seat has been wedged into the H2 HUMMER for the first time, but it’s a tiny one, and it’s difficult to reach.
Minor quibbles were also raised about the wind noise and cabin height of the 2008 HUMMER H2. ConsumerGuide observes that "there's marked wind noise above 65 mph," but on the plus side "engine noise is well muffled." Car and Driver mentions that "even the gangliest of staffers had a hard time getting into and out of the truck," but this can be mitigated with optional running boards.
