New Corvette Interior Leaked38
We’re just a few hours from the debut of the new mid-engine 2020 Corvette, and lo and behold, it appears as though someone leaked an official press shot of the new Corvette interior.
The shot includes all the hallmarks of what we’d expect from the new C8, including the new squared steering wheel, which Chevrolet shared just a few days ago.
We also see a new digital gauge cluster behind the squared wheel, with a large tachometer front and center, as well as what appears to be a gauge located to the right-hand side that reads g-levels.
Black upholstery with red contrast stitching covers everything in the new Corvette interior, while brushed metal pieces are found in the steering wheel spokes, along the dash, and in the doors. We also notice some carbon bits along the door armrests.
The center divider between the driver seat and passenger seat seems to be similar in width to the current model, and comes with a long line of hard buttons along its outer edge for various comfort features, such as HVAC, not to mention the windshield and rear glass defroster, along with seat cooling and heating functions.
One of the most interesting aspects of the new Corvette interior is the large infotainment screen added just to the right of the steering wheel. Rather than occupying a spot on the dash, this screen seems to be attached to the main gauge cluster, tilting towards the driver for easy access on the fly.
Indeed, the new Corvette interior definitely lends the mid-engine sports car a “fighter jet” kind of vibe which is heavily oriented towards driver engagement.
Stay tuned, because we’ll be covering the 2020 mid-engine Corvette C8 debut as it happens! In the meantime, catch up on everything we know about the new Vette in our in-depth preview post, and tune in to the Corvette C8 reveal live stream.

Looks like a push button auto?
Dual-clutch from the rumors. I don’t see any gear selections on the buttons. Could be wrong. The pic isn’t hi-rez enough.
It’s fairly easy to see the “P” illuminated in Amber and a “R” right below that; hard to make out much anything else…
Indeed. It’s worth noting that GM Authority broke this news months ago.
Well, I just started working at a Chev dealer a couple
of weeks ago, sooo….:)
Think of it this way, push button shifters or e-shifters save weight…
I’m impressed. Materials/design look brilliant.
I swear God if this is not the best interior among the sportscars/supercars.
Mclaren Gt’s interior looks simple compared to this one.
Cadillac, take a lesson from Chevy.
That’s true. Look at AM Vanquish or Vantage interior. Looks smple and cheap.
Cadillac must be getting a version of this Audi R8 style…
The design reminds me a look of classical Cadillac interiors, specially in the low center console
That´s say Corvette will have a Cadillac´s mate?
Cadillac needs to earn the right first to have a sports car.
Right now they need to learn how to sell a Cadillac sedan again before they expect someone to spend six figures for a sports car.
I personally think that the mid-engine vette should’ve started life as a Caddy model.
Current mid-engine cars are usually luxury cars (NSX, R8, any Lambo), plus it definitely would have put Cadillac back on the map. Between that and the Escalade…WHO KNOWS?!?
Well, well, well. Just from the picture, that is light years beyond the C7”s cockpit and looks like a car costing much more-if the rumored pricing is somewhat correct. I would be very happy to spend time in their while carving up the road.
Just like the C7, there’s a clear separation between the driver and the passenger.
Yes it’s a push button gear selection, if you look at the zoom in of the center divider you can see the PRNDM on the metal buttons. Looks good so far
The same pic in higher res:
You select the mode with a button and you select the gear on the wheel paddles.
Might be the camera angle or whatever, but a couple of things I’m not digging.
– That screen looks out of place and copy/paste Mercedes screens, and hopefully it doesn’t block the view to the far fender.
– The center console is a little too wide. Same thing with the door’s armrest’s. That could make it tight and difficult to sell to ‘big boned’ people. I know most sporty cars do have smaller interior’s but still. It just can’t be smaller than the C7. (I’m on the slim side of the map).
– Why are all the button’s closer to the passenger ?
– Steering wheel shape takes a lot from the Ford GT.
Either than that I’m happy with it.
-Perhaps the screen has ability to tilt/rotate, either way, I’m not a huge fan of the pasted on look…
-Don’t think the passanger width will be much smaller than the C7…
-99% of people aren’t driving these hard, when you’re just cruising some prefer to put their right arm on the armrest and the button placement ensures you don’t accidently press the buttons…
In this image, the camera position and angle makes it look as if the passenger seat were extremely narrow.
An image with a camera position in the center or behinde the passenger seat could correct that impression.
Pretty slick 1-seater!
It looks pretty horrendous to me too, but based on the comments on here, it looks like the majority of commentors like it.
@IceDree and Nate:
I couldn’t agree more. There is nothing that looks good or high end to me there. I’m not sure what the others are seeing that I’m not. But then again, I have zero clue what other cars in this segment look like on the inside. But for those who are saying this should be what Cadillac has inside, I disagree totally. If that was what any new Cadillac looked like, it would be the end for me.
Best interior GM has ever done.
I think GM will Blow everyone away with the C8. Cannot wait for tonight!!!
Someone just leaked the C8, I saw it on another site. Looks just like most of the good Renderings out there.
Not High Res images yet.
Not what I hoped for, NEEDS more button and switches ! next hasselhoff will be calling it KITT ?
Why does GM hate BJs? 🙁
Most comments I’ve read online have panned the interior. There are some aspects I find tacky, but in person it’s going to look just fine I’m sure.
What is that big round gauge in the center, it kind of looks like a tachometer. But the redline starts at 4000 RPM.
Redline on my C7 starts at 4500 until the engine warms up, too.
Cadillac should draw their inspiration from this interior!
