2016 Chevy Volt Interior: Bolder and More Cohesive
Much has been made of the 2016 Chevrolet Volt’s bold new exterior, but there’s room enough to discuss the numerous improvements to the Volt’s interior.
“The 2016 Volt maintains the high-tech interior design aesthetic of the first-generation Volt, but has more user-friendly elements creating an inviting balance between ambiance and functionality,” said Crystal Windham, Chevrolet Interior Design director. “The new interior will appeal to existing owners, but also to those who will be new to the Volt family because of its integrated, yet familiar technology.”
Chevrolet says that the interior of the Volt was constructed with the same focus on flowing form. The instrument panel is built to flow seamlessly into the door panels and center console, creating the feeling that it acts as the heart of the vehicle’s greenhouse. The rear portion of the Volt also gets some attention with new seat design that can seat up to three passengers.
Chevrolet is also touting a number of new features for the Volt, up to and including standard rear-vision camera, improved charge status indicators, enhances center armrest, and available heated rear seats and steering wheel. These features join holdover amenities from the previous generation model such as Siri Eyes Free, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and OnStar 4G LTE with built-in Wi-Fi.
