With all that raw horsepower and fiberglass, the 2008 Chevrolet Corvette fights to shed its beastly image and delivers its most civilized ride yet.

At Chevrolet, 2008 brings some much-needed refinement into the Chevy Corvette’s cabin and overall quality. ConsumerGuideAuto calls the room for both driver and passenger in the 2008 Chevrolet Corvette "adequate" and says the seats are "comfortable." Motor Trend notices the new center console and bright work, declaring the interior "classier." Car and Driver says the new interior addressed many of the car's "shortcomings." The optional cabin treatment has the same leather used in Maybachs, TheCarConnection.com adds. The rich two-tone leather is welcome, and far superior to aftermarket fix-it attempts.

Cars.com points out that room is at a premium in the Chevrolet; 2008’s Corvette has “cargo volume beneath the hatchback lid is 22 cubic feet. Convertibles hold 11 cubic feet, but capacity drops to 7.5 cubic feet with the top down.”

Fit and finish received very little attention in these reviews. Edmunds says specifically that the Corvette has made "big strides in fit and finish" for Chevrolet; 2008 versions “boast[s] friendly ergonomics, supportive seats and excellent fit and finish.” However, they did note the Corvette’s “mediocre cupholder and storage provisions, ho-hum interior materials and underwhelming Bose audio system.”

ConsumerGuideAuto mentions that the roof panel in the coupe they tested gave an unwarranted rattle, and the keyless entry and ignition can be a bit temperamental if the Access fob is ill-placed.

Conclusion

The 2008 Chevrolet Corvette has a much-improved interior, but there’s still not much room inside.

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.
