2010 Camaro Interior trumped by 2010 Mustang?

http://www.autoblog.com/2009/01/14/d...-chevy-camaro/

According to Autoblog, it's true. WTF.

"We are big fans of the overall design and love the retro look, but were somewhat disappointed with the overall feel and quality of materials used inside -- the 2010 Mustang easily trumps the Camaro in terms of interior quality. "

I love the interior because it is simple and practical. True it is nothing too flashy, but I much prefer that to chrome accents everywhere and such. I do love that ABL though. We have been assured it is durable/not made of cheap materials, and that is all I needed to hear.

I will still buy it as well, but I can't imagine the Ford having a better interior. The only time I have seen Ford with a better interior is the F150 interior vs. the previous generation Silverado's.

I have not seen the Camaro in person, but I find this hard to believe.

So long for delaying the car to make it better.

I find it hard to believe as well...and I was in the damn thing. Methinks production materials still not used?? Or else....I haven't got a clue where this is coming from.

Opinions are like a.. h.... everyone has one. The person or persons are entitled to their opinion but doesn't mean it's true.

Its all about personal taste.

Well, if you were in it, and you know it rocks, that is a good start. Have you sat in a 2010 Mustang yet? I have only seen pictures of the interior. It looks nice, but I can't tell the quality from a picture.

Here we ago again...someone on another site, albeit a popular site, states an opinion and we get people crying here.

If it weren't for the inside info and a few sane people I'd never visit this site.

It's an opinion folks...an opinion that might not be shared by all.

I like green...should I not buy the Maro because it doesn't come in green?

I wouldn't be concerned over a single early review. We have been repeatedly reassured that the Camaro will be world class and second to no one considering it'll be last to the dance.

I look forward not having to defend my purchase with lame tag lines like "yea, but it has 426HP" etc etc.

Don't worry about it. Opinions are like *** ***** everyone (including myself) has one.

Who cares the car look like excrement, speaking of ****. Ford still puts the brake lever where it was in a Pinto, touching your leg if tall. Idiots.....

The car looks old and boring... Chix won't dig it at all compared to Cam5.

they also said they can't wait for the 400hp LS3..

If you compare the two cars, they are "close enough" in price, but one car has a much better chasis and a lot more power but the other has a better interior (pure speculation at this point though). You can't have a world class interior too and keep the price competitive. For me, the interior looks good enough. Yeah, from the pics, the plastics don't look the greatest, especially the plain looking E-brake, but it's good for me. I am not buying a luxury coupe like a G37. The Mustang had better have something going for it to lure customers because the 100+ hp deficit is going to hurt. Once it gets the more powerful engines in a year or two, look for the prices to go up too.

You know..some people rip on the quality of my Cobalt dash....but it's not as bad as they make it. It's better than the competitors dash, IMO.

If we were to base the winner on the dash APPEARANCE only, the Camaro dash wins hands down. I can only hope the that quality matches it.

Ford started putting a lot of cheap plastic chrome all over the place too. They had some more round designs but are back to chop square looking stuff and it looks tacky in the Mustang and even the brand new higher end F150 interior looks cheap chrome tacky IMO*.

There is only one way to tell the comfort and that's a long road test. Even a short test drive normally won't give you the whole picture of how you will feel after a long road trip.

If you look at the link, they claim they are basing it off of the production version

The only reason they say that is because it has a freaking nav screen in the console.
