The 2014 Chevrolet SS might be an especially overt performance sedan, but the rather boxy, straightforward design has its benefits—in reasonably good back-seat space, and better outward visibility than many modern sedan designs.

SS really measures up at the long end of the mid-size scale (195.5 inches long, with nearly a 115-inch wheelbase), but at 74.7 inches wide, it feels somewhat narrow for its length—more like a smaller mid-size car in that respect. It's virtually the same size as the Cadillac CTS--a car that's built on a different GM architecture--yet the SS manages to feel a bit roomier.

Aggressively bolstered leather sport seats are included in front, while the back seat feels roomy enough for adults--and entry and exit are quite easy for taller passengers, thanks to the conservative roofline.

This is the first Chevrolet sedan to ride on standard summer performance tires--Z-rated at that--but all considering, the SS rides rather quietly, with good insulation from road and wind noise. You hear the engine when you're accelerating--anything from a thrummy bellow at low rates to a crackling exotic sound when accelerating hard--but it's not always present.

The SS does without a magnetic suspension or adjustable dampers, or any other special active systems, so it's no surprise that this is a firm-riding sedan. Snow Belt potholes and heaves tend to show as choppy, if not jarring, from inside.

Conclusion

The SS wows with great, spacious seating and a reasonably quiet cabin; but the lack of suspension techno-wizardry means you pay the price with a choppier ride.

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.
