Interior appointments are quite nice in the 2014 Chevy Camaro, but the rear seats and trunk are very small--and you'd better not be very tall in any case.

Popular Mechanics

The rest of the cabin is still finished in black plastic with gray accents, the worst of which is found on the sides of the transmission tunnel and center console. It all just looks downmarket.

The cabin appointments are where your love affair with the style and performance of the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro might come to a screeching halt. Why? Because the low-set roofline means that there's a severe shortage of headroom for taller drivers (not just the really tall ones, but most six-footers will find it tight, too).

The Chevy Camaro pays an obvious price for its meta-Sixties sheetmetal--and that's inside. The cabin is small even by musclecar standards, and storage and trunk space are minimal.

Tall drivers get the worst of it in the Camaro, and those who race will feel it every time they strap on a helmet. The front seats--from base models to the sporty seats on ZL1s--are comfortable even for long trips. There's simply not enough headroom for six-footers, especially when a sunroof is part of the equation. Skip it, because the low roof then loses all its clearance, and the Camaro comes up short. Even getting in and out of the car can be difficult, with the roofline and long, heavy doors stretching the boundaries of convenience.

The rear seats are 911-like, which is to say, almost unusable for anyone beyond their single-digit years. There's simply not enough leg room here even for tweenagers--just under 30 inches of leg room by the spec sheet. The interior also narrows dramatically as the Camaro swells around its wheels at its hips. The trunk struggles to swallow tennis bags, and you won't find much added storage around the cabin.

SS and ZL1 Camaros can be trimmed up with suede and leather and brightly colored trim pieces--some of those combinations are love-or-hate, really--while on all Camaros the back seat is for children only and the trunk is tight.

Although you sacrifice a lot for the design of the Camaro, kudos to GM for making them so tight and rattle-free; and we've noticed in repeated drives that road and wind noise are truly kept to a minimum.

 

Conclusion

Interior appointments are quite nice in the 2014 Chevy Camaro, but the rear seats and trunk are very small--and you'd better not be very tall in any case.

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.
