Agree.. but I would really like to see an updated and improved interior on this summers 2019 refresh! The dated Challenger even tops the Camaro in this category! GM should step up in this area I.E. Buick!

Probably that full digital dash. I find the center console of the camaro better and tasteful. Mustang center with the switches looks old as like it's from 2005

I like the Camaro interior over the Mustang and Challenger interiors. It feels less retro and everything is at your fingertips.

That said, I can live with the other two as long as they have the bigger screen option.

The layout is fine but there is way too much hard plastics throughout and those hand freezer vents need to go! It really does seem more fit for the Cruze material wise!

Well, I love the Camaro interior and was surprised at how much Chevy improved their interiors... finally. I did notice that my gauge cluster is off center a bit with a gap on the left side between the cluster and dash housing.

I have to agree about the interior in the Ford. It is extremely nice. Its the rest of the car that is far behind the Camaro.

Having owned a 2014 I agree that the interior is much improved in Gen6. Chevy in general has been making strides in improving interiors in their entire line, but interior materials, interior fit and gap issues still leave a lot to be desired. In the new generation Chevy Cruze the interior looks much more modern but sadly the fit and gaps and material quality even took a step back from the previous generation where GM Korea played a big role in it's design. GM can make a world class interior I.E. the Buick line, but due to cost cutting not all lines benefit!

Toyota 86? Give that thing a real engine before you call that a sportscar. A 150hp VW Golf is faster than a GT86
