A. It's one opinion.
B. Take a breath. Did Scott not post very recently that a reason for the delay was because "they wanted to get everything "right" and ensure a very high quality?
C.
"Keep the Faith"! I'm sure the quality of the Camaro's interior will be at the very least as high in quality as the Mustang's.
D. It's one opinion!

And while I admit to being somewhat biased towards the Camaro, in all honesty, I think the interior of the Camaro reflects much more stlye than the interior of the Mustang.

We must focus:

Quote:
It seems like eons since Chevy initially unveiled the Camaro concept in Detroit.

Since then, we've seen so many camouflaged test mules and pre-production cars that we were starting to worry the design would feel too familiar before the Camaro hit dealerships.

In reality, three years is a relatively short time for car to go from concept to reality, and from the reactions we saw on the show floor, the Camaro has nothing to worry about.

Despite the focus on green cars, the Camaro was still one of the most popular vehicles at the Chevrolet display and we had to wait our turn to get a look inside.

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. "

Come now peeps. AutoBlog? How reputable are they? Consumer Reports is at least reputable though boring as hell. Lets see what the real guys say before listening to a Blogger.

Plus they could have bought the clowns off.

Honestly, of the Camaro, Challenger, and 2010 Mustang, I think the Mustang wins on the best combination of modern class with retro cues. Lotta features on the Mustang with aesthetics that are less kitchy than the Camaro's and less generic than the Challenger's. I'd still have the Camaro over either of them, but Ford did a very good job with the 2010 Mustang.

No worries about the Camaro interior. The car itself is already a "have to have car" . I wouldn't trade my 07 Mustang with all of it's cheap hard plastic for a butt ugly 2010 Mustang just for better interior. I wanted my car because it was a true throwback to the cool cars before I was old enough to drive. And hi I have got alot of great info on this site.

Well it's apples and oranges- Mustang is several thou cheaper but the GT has 125 fewer ponies. The powerful one (GT-500) is stupidly overpriced.

Maybe the Mustang interior is better looking, but I don't care. The inexpensive performance of the much better looking (on the outside) Camaro trumps the doggy and ordinary Mustang GT.

But what I really DON'T like about the Camaro is the speedometer/tach guage cluster. That really does look like $h^! to me. It may be retro, but so is an AMC Gremlin- old is not necessarily better. But the Camaro seats in the pictures look great to me. You won't get Cadillac quality interior in a low end Chevy, and I don't expect it.

Well I for one am not buying a camaro for its interior. Let the guy who believes in Auto blog, buy his mustang. He can sniff my exhaust fumes and rubber as I leave him at the traffic light.

From all of the pictures I have seen of the Camaro's interior, I can't see how it won't feel top notch. You can tell by the thickness of the seats, the consistency of the materials throughout, and the precision of the door gaps.

Its one opinion that goes against all of the other information we have seen and opinions we have heard.

I refuse to believe this. The Camaro blows the doors off the Mustang.

I sat in the Mustang at the L.A. Auto Show and was NOT impressed. It looked 'nice', but who the heck wants their muscle car to have a 'nice' interior? It just looks absolutely uninspired. And the quality of the materials was nothing to write home about... especially on the doors [HARD HARD plastic]. Everyone web/print magazine that's written about the Camaro's interior agree it gets style points over the Mustang's and Challenger's so I can't see GM dropping the ball by filling it with crap textures The materials in the Malibu are heads/shoulders/nipples above the Mustang's so I just can't imagine the Camaro's being anything less than what the Mustang offers.

Awesome animation. Like the Mustang never saw it coming.
