Surprisingly, road noise is almost nonexistent
The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro wins praise for its comfortable front seats, but loses it just as quickly once you focus on the rear seating arrangements and available cargo space.
It's rare for a performance car like the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro to offer just one type of seat across its lineup, but such is the case with the new Chevrolet Camaro. Autoblog reports that the "seats, even in cloth, are compellingly sculpted," and other reviewers agree that the front seats are quite comfortable. Reviewers at Cars.com easily "found enough headroom and legroom up front," although they warn that "the optional moonroof takes away about an inch of headroom." Autoblog remarks that "the front seats will be friends to anyone of almost any size, and in back there's a pleasant amount of space for heads and feet," although most reviewers would dispute that second assertion. Cars.com, in particular, is critical of the rear seats on 2010 Chevy Camaro 2+2, noting that the "two-position backseat" is "tiny."
Cargo space doesn't receive much press in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com—in fact, Cars.com's assertion that "the trunk...[is] tiny" represents the whole of the discussion on cargo space in the Chevrolet Camaro. Suffice it to say that consumers probably won't be lining up to buy the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro for trips to Costco.
GM's old, and at times deserved, reputation for poor quality is on its way out the door, thanks to interiors like the one found on the 2010 Chevy Camaro. Cars.com notes that the interior "plastics are hard to the touch, but they don't look that way, and low-gloss finishes across the doors and dash impart quality." Car and Driver reviewers are in the minority when they complain about the "oceans of plastic" inside the Chevrolet Camaro, as most reviewers tend to side with Cars.com, which declares that the Chevrolet Camaro's "quality is impressive...from the window switches and A/C dials to the turn-signal stalks and radio buttons, there's no shortage of well-oiled precision."
Vehicular build quality manifests itself in many ways, but one of the most noticeable is cabin noise. Simply put, vehicles with better build quality should do a better job of suppressing road noise, and the 2010 Chevy Camaro offers one of the most isolated driving experiences in its class. Automobile Magazine says that, "surprisingly, road noise is almost nonexistent, as is wind noise," while Car and Driver reviewers are astonished by the "eerily serene ride and utter absence of wind noise."
If your joyriding plans don't include more than one passenger, the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro offers a high-quality alternative to other sports coupes.
