This week, I got my first chance to sample the 2012 Chevy Camaro, which received several updates — mostly to its interior. These updates addressed most of the dissatisfaction and discontent with the Camaro’s cabin since the pony car’s relaunch in 2010, and even though the revised interior isn’t as good as a drop in weight or an increase in power, it’s a start to perfecting one of the most lust-worthy vehicles on the planet.
As far as the interior is concerned, the 2012 Camaro gets a new steering wheel and revisions to the driver’s instrument panel, the occupant-facing cutaway of the dashboard yes, that part is soft-touch but the rest of the dash ins’t, and a back-up camera system that’s standard on the Convertible variant and optional on the Coupe. All these features unequivocally make the Camaro’s cabin either more attractive, as is the case with the new trim line on the dash, or more useful, such as with the back-up Camera system.
But the most controversial aspect of the updated cabin is most likely the steering wheel, which is the standard-issue Chevy wheel seen on the Cruze, Volt, Equinox, Sonic, and next-generation Malibu.
