I knew the interior of the new Corvette Stingray would be impressive when I first heard General Motors Design Chief, Ed Welburn rave over it before the car’s official debut last year; however, I’m not even sure Welburn imagined the C7’s cockpit would get as much praise as it’s getting now.
Already a huge hit among buyers and critics alike, the new Stingray’s interior also recently picked up some pretty high marks from WardsAuto as one of their 10 Best Interiors for 2014.
To qualify for Wards’ 10 Best Interiors, a vehicle must feature a new or significantly redesigned interior, according to the company’s official press release. A total of 41 vehicles were evaluated for the list with a focus on features such as ergonomics, driver information, fit-and-finish, materials, value, safety, comfort and design harmony.
“This year’s list is the most diverse we’ve ever had, from affordable compacts to ultra-luxury cars such as the Rolls-Royce Wraith,” said WardsAuto World Editor-in-Chief Drew Winter.
“In each case, the interior plays a pivotal role in establishing the vehicle’s brand character and making it intensely desirable to buyers.”
Yup, I’d say that pretty much sums up the new Corvette.
