Posted by: admin In: Main ()
The Camaro’s interior probably doesn’t receive the credit that it deserves. But, at least some industry experts are taking notice. Ward’s Auto has awarded the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro the best Sports Car interior. The Ward’s Auto 2010 interior awards were announced out after more than two months of fiddling with knobs, climbing into back seats, scouring about for USB jacks and generally picking apart 40 new vehicle interiors.
Throughout February, March and early April, eight Ward’s editors evaluated 40 vehicle interiors. The 40 nominees were either all-new vehicles or offered significantly upgraded interiors for the 2010 model year. Editors submitted scoresheets for each vehicle and awarded points based on fit-and-finish, comfort, material selection, safety and overall value. They also paid attention to ergonomics and awarded points for accessibility of buttons, switches, vehicle controls and USB audio jacks. They climbed into the back seats of sporty coupes and into the third row of SUVs and cross/utility vehicles. They folded down back seats to see how much usable storage space was gained and whether the load floor was relatively flat. Most important, editors evaluated design harmony and aesthetics to see if all the design elements came together to impress, delight, soothe and surprise drivers and passengers.
As for the Camaro, Ward’s Auto had this to say: “Also under $30,000, this year’s Sports Car winner is the all-new Chevrolet Camaro, which carries on some classic Camaro styling cues while delivering a host of contemporary technologies.
