2014 Chevrolet SS
Chevrolet SS Interior
Test drivers say that attractive leather trim and plush surfaces make the 2014 Chevrolet SS’ cabin feel luxurious. The front seats are well-bolstered and offer good visibility, they say, while the back seat is very spacious. Reviewers like that the gauges and controls are logically placed and the SS comes fully loaded with features including leather seats, a premium audio system and a head-up display.
- "The dash is covered in leather and suede (or at least convincing facsimiles of the real thing) and feels of quality. The same can be said of the center stack, though some may find its two-tone metal finish a bit too blingy." -- Autoblog
- "What's most impressive about the SS is how much more grown-up it feels inside and out. There's supple leather with convincing suede flourishes, cut-and-sew materials on the doors and dash, and that spiffy high-res color HUD with multiple screen options, including ones that indicate lateral g (remembering peaks for a moment so you can check them after a corner) and help tell you when to flick the paddle for an upshift.” -- Motor Trend
- "The mix of perforated leather, gray suede, red stitching, and minimal hard plastics wouldn't be uncouth in a Cadillac. The polished-aluminum center stack and steering-wheel accents are the only touches that strike us as over the top." -- Car and Driver
- "Inside, the finish is rich and worth its price." -- AutoWeek
The Chevrolet SS seats five and comes with leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and heated and ventilated power-adjustable front seats. Auto writers say that the front seats are very supportive and offer good visibility. There’s plenty of room in the back seat, too, and the cabin is very quiet, they note.
- “The heated and ventilated front seats are appropriately bolstered to combine ample grip with a thorough range of rake and backrest adjustment. There's a proper dead pedal, and the plastic shift paddles are ribbed for a satisfying feel." -- Car and Driver
- "Possibly the only interior component of the G8 that remains is its biggest strength: ample rear-seat room. Whether you plan to haul full-size adults or install child seats you'll find enough space to accommodate your needs." -- Edmunds
- "There aren't any funky sight lines, and, unlike the Camaro with which the SS shares its Zeta platform, you can actually see out of this performance sedan in all directions.” -- Autoblog
- "The SS makes the most of its long wheelbase on the highway, where it is a solid straight line cruiser. Moreover, it's even very quiet - especially considering its 19-inch alloy wheels are shoed with wide Bridgestone summer tires." -- Left Lane News
The 2014 Chevrolet SS comes standard with Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment system with an 8-inch touch-screen display, voice-controlled navigation, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, a nine-speaker Bose audio system, a USB port, an auxiliary jack, dual-zone automatic climate control, a head-up display, a rearview camera and remote start. Also standard are parking sensors, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, rear cross traffic alert and blind spot monitoring. A power sunroof is available.
Reviewers say the SS comes with a good amount of standard features, and like that the gauges are canted toward the driver. One critic notes that there aren’t any USB or 12-volt charging ports in the rear seats.
- "… all the gauges are right in front where the driver would expect." -- Autoblog
- “Given the generous equipment - standard features include navigation, heated and ventilated leather/synthetic suede seats, a lane departure warning system, a heads up display and even sensors that help the SS park itself into either a parallel or a perpendicular spot - the SS is actually something of a bargain." -- Left Lane News
- "The huge back seat offers limo-like comfort (and even some lateral support), but no 12-volt or USB charge points." -- Motor Trend
The Chevrolet SS has 16.4 cubic feet of trunk space, which is decent for the class, but smaller than the trunk in the Chevrolet Impala, which holds 18.8 cubic feet of cargo. Test drivers are impressed with the size of the SS’ trunk, saying there’s plenty of space for luggage. The trunk pass-through offers added convenience for hauling long items, they add.
- "The spacious, well-equipped interior will seat five real people, and the 16.4-cubic-foot trunk will happily swallow enough luggage for a long road trip.” -- Automobile Magazine
- "The SS is big, with the same interior volume and 35 percent more trunk space than a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, according to the EPA, on a substantially shorter wheelbase." -- AutoWeek
- “Rear access, thanks to wide door openings, doesn't hurt, and neither does a massive 16.4-cubic-foot trunk." -- Edmunds
- “The center portion of the backrest folds to haul lumber and pipe purchases back to the ranch from home-improvement stores." -- Car and Driver
