2014 Chevrolet Camaro Comfort & Quality

Comfort & Quality

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.

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.

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.
