Sorry, but brushed aluminum accents aren't enough. Just because Auto Blog says the Mustang's interior is the bee's knees doesn't make it so. As stated, those who sat in a Camaro have said the interior is top-notch. I'd wait to pass judgement until I sat in both. Of course, I'd wait and pass judgement until I sat in both if I EVER entertained the thought of owning a Mustang. Since Hell hasn't reached an ambient temperature of 32 degrees farenheit (0 degrees celcius), I still haven't entertained that thought.

Relax kids, it will be worth your buckos to get a Camaro. I'm selling everything but my first-born but I'll have mine. It's still a 2SS/RS for me. Get those lines going!!!!!

Well if they said 2008 mustang I would be a bit worried as it's not a great interior IMO, but I haven't sat in the updated 2010 yet. Ford can put together a fairly nice interior when they really try and that was supposed to be the primary focus of their update. Of course there's the possibility of the writer simply being easily impressed by shinies like extra chrome or nav. Time will tell the tale when they're both on the sales lots though.

My pick... camaro. I hate the center stereo/HVAC area of the mustang. The completely flat with buttons popping out annoys me.

Just noticed something about the Ford....Look at those speakers on the doors of the Mustang!!!! Those would get kicked right off within the first 2 years I had it, without a doubt. Ouch! That's got to be at least 1.5" - 2" of protrusion.


And I think some of you may be right in your theory for why the blogger thought the Mustang is better...it's just more shiny inside. It still looks bland and utilitarian to me. Again -- I loved the Camaro's inside when I sat in the IVER at Indy. I don't think anyone has anything to be worried about.

It's alright guys, just go see for your self. Dont let one mans opinion shoot your hopes down. What if it was a biased opinion ? I was told the interior of the Camaro was going to be the same as the Impala, and when I sat in the Impala, I liked it quite a bit. So just be patient to sit in the Camaro and you personally can decide your decisions about the interior.

I've been in both an 09 Challenger and my 07 GT (obviously) and I've got to say, the interior of my Mustang is far superior to that of the Challenger. Can't say much about the Camaro considering I've only seen pics; but in comparison, I think they're right about the 2010 Mustang's interior being better than the Camaro's.

I've sat in the new Mustang in the LA car show and was not impressed. The interior in my opinion was kind of bland and lots of flat plastic surfaces. The ergonomics didn't fit me. Ergonomics is one thing that I really think Japanese manufactures on average have done quicker and better than U.S. car makers, although some of the more recent higher end U.S. models have been absolutely great in that department. The seat in the Mustang was uncomfortable for me, thin feeling, with very little support in the hip and side areas. The SRT8's seats, all of them Charger, Challenger, 300 and Grand Cherokee was very comfortable. Those seats hugged me but gave enough outlet by the shoulders that it didn't seem suffocating. I think that seat comfort is hugely determined by body size and proportions. I hope that the Camaro's seats lean more toward the SRT8's than the Mustang. Have to hand it to the Chrysler/Dodge people on those seats, just hope GM will go toe to toe with them on that as well as other aspects of the interior. By the pictures shown of the Camaro interior I think it will feel better than the Mustang's but only a production model open for testing will answer that.

agree with autoblog. plastics (especially gauges and tachometer plastics) look really cheap. The concept looked way better inside (outside too but ...)

but saying mustang does better .. to the extend of what i've seen, the mustang interior is the most boring one i've ever seen. Even VW Golf are sexy compared to the mustang

That has to be one hellva interior. I can't really tell you who has the better one, not seen a new stang yet to compare. I would be willing to bet that Camaro has it.

I have to give props to the Mustang in at least two areas. I like the font on the tach/speedo, and I like the chrome trimmed pedals. Those do look nice.

Doesn't the new Mustang use real aluminum accents and not painted silver plastic like the Camaro? I for one love the interior design of the Camaro, but it would be nice if they used quality materials like the new Mustang as I think it would go a long way

I think one of the biggest reasons the mustang interior trumps the camaro is ... and flame me ... the technology package(s) offered by ford in the mustang. The Nav with traffic and ipod interface (not just aux jack or usb jack), weather, etc and HVAC controls are what a car 10 years in to the 21st century should have.

The radio/cd and hvac in the camaro are very outdated and that has an affect on the perceived QUALITY of the interior.

the dash on the mustang interior does look a little classier.
But the seats on the camaro look better.

You need to look at the functionality in the Camaro Radio. If you get the connectivity package you have bluetooth, etc.

Also, if you haven't used OnStar Turn by Turn, you are missing out. Other than seeing a picture it is the greatest way to get around. Push a button, no stopping to enter an address. The Camaro has a lot of tech, it's just burierd in the retro styled I/P.

I just think there are too many flat areas, so-to-speak, on the IP on the Mustang. I'll agree with the posts about the cluster on Camaro maybe being a little different (well, that's the term I'll use because I wouldn't say it's not as good as the Mustang, just that is definately more unique; I just haven't figured out if it's a good unique or otherwise.) I think there's something to be said about what Big' says too. However, for me, those aren't all things that I'm looking for in my Camaro. Shoot, I don't have much interest in the 2SS except for the leather and a couple other small things. I don't know that I perceive the center stack on Camaro outdated; it is certainly a different take, just like the cluster, than I've seen in most other cars. I think the script for the speedo' and tach' are, perhaps, a little awkward, but that's about as close to an actual gripe that I have. If the fit and finish is tight, then any of these little things I've listed will be pretty insignificant.

I do like the chunky look of those SRT seats though. They look super comfy' and supportive. I prefer the stitching on the Mustang and on Camaro but those seats still look nice.

JMVHO.

Anything is better than my cracked, creaking, cheap, falling apart, plastic interior of my cavalier so I could really care less on which car is better on the interior. I had NO IDEA people were so picky about this stuff, I care about the exterior and the PERFORMANCE!

BTW, the mustang picture doesn't have a flash nearly as bright as the ones of the Camaro. The super bright flash IMO kills it and makes it look cheap. Take a pic of the Mustang with that flash and it will look equally cheap. We need some pics of it with light from a source other then the cameras flash. +1 for the Camaro interior

this is alllllllllllllll opinion. all of it. My opinion is that i like the unique interior of the Camaro, but i like how the mustang almost looks more rugged.


And ive never sat in either car, but the seats in the mustang do it for me because of the color stitching.

BTW Muscle Master... if the 370z makes the SS look like a pig should we just start calling the SRT Moby Dick?

Wow, that new Mustang interior looks WAY better than the Camaro, IMO.

And I am neutral between the two cars, overall.

Well done, Ford.
