Thumbs up Camaro Wins Best Sports Car Interior Award from Wards Auto

After more than two months of fiddling with knobs, climbing into back seats, scouring about for USB jacks and generally picking apart 40 new vehicle interiors, the editors of Ward’s Automotive Group announce the winners of the 2010 Interior of the Year awards.

Throughout February, March and early April, eight Ward’s editors evaluated 40 vehicle interiors. The 40 nominees were either all-new vehicles or offered significantly upgraded interiors for the 2010 model year.

Editors submitted scoresheets for each vehicle and awarded points based on fit-and-finish, comfort, material selection, safety and overall value.

They also paid attention to ergonomics and awarded points for accessibility of buttons, switches, vehicle controls and USB audio jacks. They climbed into the back seats of sporty coupes and into the third row of SUVs and cross/utility vehicles.

They folded down back seats to see how much usable storage space was gained and whether the load floor was relatively flat.

Most important, editors evaluated design harmony and aesthetics to see if all the design elements came together to impress, delight, soothe and surprise drivers and passengers.

This year’s nominees were split into six vehicle categories, two of which were price-capped. From year to year, the categories change based on launch cycles. For instance, four hybrids were new to the market, so they were given their own category.

Also under $30,000, this year’s Sports Car winner is the all-new Chevrolet Camaro, which carries on some classic Camaro styling cues while delivering a host of contemporary technologies.

Also FYI... Equinox also won in the "Popular-Priced truck under $39,999" category!

Waits for Ford guys to complain or say it was because the mustang wasnt in the running.

there's one person with a blue camaro that wrapped all the plastic trim in leather... looks really good, but **** i bet it was expensive!

if i had money to throw around, i would wrap all the plastic in leather, do the roof in suede, make the seats leather and suede. try and keep it real clean and luxuious looking without making it too gaudy.

Leather requires more TLC than plastic, unless you plan to keep the car covered in storage most of the year. I think the big issue people have with ALL that plastic is that it doesn't have to be rock hard. Textured coatings have been available for years and don't cost that much more to apply, pre-assembly. I'm not all into touching and feeling my car's interior, so it's not a big deal to me.

I just don't get why people want suede in the interior.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

I love that the dash can get a quick wipe and look like brand new.
