The brand-new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray’s interior combines exquisite materials and artistry with modern technologies that add to a more linked and more appealing drive experience.
Each interior feature and detail is conceived to augment the driver's bond to the Corvette. It begins with the fully surrounding cockpit inspired by fighter jets, goes on to construction with the slighter steering wheel, more accommodating seating, and high-def, adjustable displays, and finishes with luxurious materials.
The smaller 14.1” across (360 mm) steering wheel allows for a more straightforward, direct feel to direction inputs. The care given to the driver reaches to the tiniest details, such as the smooth, crisp stitches on the steering wheel planned to give an even, smooth feeling.
Accurate and stylish stitches are also found in the available Napa leather trim of the brand-new seats.
Two seat selections are being offered: a GT for all-over comfort and a Competition Sport with stronger side bolsters that give better support on the track.
