Chevrolet Camaro Interior

The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro meshes modern interior features with a retro-inspired design, though not all auto writers are wowed by the end result. Hard plastic trim cheapens the Camaro’s interior feel, and taller drivers may need more headroom. The Camaro’s back seat is also quite small, even for an affordable sports car. Some reviewers also note that the available MyLink infotainment system responds slowly to user inputs.

  • "Old-school pony cars weren't known for their jazzy interiors, but the 2014 Chevrolet Camaro makes a clean break with that tradition." -- Edmunds 
  • "Standing in sharp contrast to the Camaro's excellent exterior design is its lackluster interior. Expectations are quickly deflated at the sight and feel of hard plastics on the doors and center console. The available cluster of four gauges for oil pressure, battery voltage, and oil and transmission temperature help to bring retro charm to the cockpit." -- Kelley Blue Book 
  • "Inside the car you'll find very little changed for the new model year, meaning the same love-it-or-hate-it, super-shiny plastic panels on the doors and framing the dash, along with big blocky gauges and (in our 2SS trim car) Chevy's useful MyLink infotainment system." -- Autoblog
  • "All models suffer from terrible visibility and an interior with some very obvious cost cutting." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

Seating

The Camaro seats four and comes with cloth upholstery and power-reclining front seats. Heated front seats, six-way power-adjustable front seats, leather upholstery and Recaro sport seats are available. While the 2014 Camaro has roomy front seats, many auto critics note that the coupe’s low roofline may not offer enough headroom for taller drivers. However, the Camaro convertible provides adequate headroom for most people with the top up. Rear-seat accommodations are almost always subpar in sports cars, but reviewers say the Camaro has one of the most cramped back seats in the class. Additionally, test drivers note that the Camaro’s small windows and thick roof pillars result in exceptionally bad front and rear visibility.

  • "Alas, there are some downsides endemic to the Camaro. Seeing out of the thing, for instance, is one of the car's more distracting elements. The tiny windows look great from the outside, but they result in poor outward visibility." -- Edmunds 
  • "The Camaro's low-slung roof robs headspace for taller drivers, the small sun visors are nearly useless, and the back seats can feel like purgatory for adults." -- Kelley Blue Book 
  • "I've always been impressed with the sports-car handling of the 5th generation Camaro, but the coupe's turret-slit windows and thick pillars fore and aft have always made it difficult to place the car on the road with utter confidence. The increased visibility of the convertible transforms this car for me - in the interest of full disclosure, my above-average height certainly colors my strong feelings here." -- Autoblog
  • "On coupes, headroom is in very short supply, particularly with the optional sunroof." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

Interior Features

The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro 1LS comes standard with automatic headlights, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity and a six-speaker stereo with satellite radio. Options and features on higher trims include a Boston Acoustics stereo system, a USB port, a head-up display, rear parking sensors, a backup camera, navigation and Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system, which includes a 7-inch touch-screen display.

While reviewers appreciate some optional features, such as the head-up display, the MyLink infotainment system earns mixed reviews. Some auto writers note that MyLink offers logical on-screen menus, large touch-screen controls and the ability to control smartphone apps like Pandora Internet radio. However, others say that it doesn’t respond well to voice commands and that MyLink can be slow to respond to user inputs.

  • "The Camaro's touchscreen display interface features a clean layout and intuitive menu structure, and it allows control of smartphone radio apps, such as Pandora and Stitcher. Unfortunately, the interface can prove frustrating to use at times, as reactions to touch inputs are occasionally slow or missed entirely." -- Edmunds
  • "We couldn't say ‘no’ to the MyLink system -- or much of anything else, for that matter; most voice commands to the system went misinterpreted, no matter how carefully enunciated." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
  • "The head-up display was a great feature that I acclimated to quickly. This is an image that's projected onto the windshield and shows some basic information, like speed, without requiring me to take my eyes away from the road." -- Mother Proof (2011)

Cargo

The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro coupe has 11.3 cubic feet of trunk space, while the convertible offers 10.2 cubic feet of room. While those figures are about average for an affordable sports car, some reviewers note that the Camaro’s small trunk lid makes it difficult to load and unload bulkier items. If you need more space to stow your gear, consider the Ford Mustang or Dodge Challenger, which have 13.4 and 16.2 cubic feet of trunk space, respectively.

  • "The trunk is equally tiny at just 11.3 cubic feet, and that space can't be expanded due to the absence of fold-down rear seatbacks. The smallish trunk opening also makes loading and unloading of larger items a frustrating experience." -- Edmunds
  • "Chevy claims 11.3 cubic feet of trunk space for coupes, but the high liftover and small aperture make access difficult." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
  • "The Camaro convertible isn't only just looks. It does have some function to it, as well. I was quite surprised that I was able to squeeze two sets of golf clubs into the trunk. Granted, they were both child-sized; I stashed my full-sized clubs in the front seat." -- Mother Proof (2011)
