2020 Corvette C8 Interior Makes An Early Appearance In All Its Glory

While the world is waiting for the official reveal of the all-new, mid-engine Corvette later today, someone was eager to share a full shot of the model’s impressive interior.

Of course if you’re a regular Carscoops reader, you’ve already seen the C8 Corvette’s cabin, as we’ve exclusively published it back in January. This, however, is our first proper look at it, free of any annoying covers.

The image was shared on Twitter by automotive writer Bozi Tatarevic, who says it got it via a message and that GM didn’t share with him any embargoed material about the C8 Corvette.

Unlike our (very) early look, the interior here is wrapped in black leather with red contrast stitching, and we can for the first time clearly see how the door-card design blends in with the rest of the dashboard.

The whole vibe “screams” Corvette, but at the same time it is like a radical departure in terms of quality and, of course, technology. The driver is basically wrapped by the dashboard, which leaves the passenger with just a few air vents. The C7 also does that, but the new C8 turns that up to 11.

The digital instrument cluster is expected to be fully configurable, with plenty of screen options depending on the selected mode and the driver’s preferences. The large touchscreen for the infotainment system looks pretty modern and premium, thanks to its glass surface and the metal detailing on the sides.

We’re not sure about the very long row of physical buttons running down the center console, though; these are the HVAC controls and their positioning give access to the passenger as well, which, we guess, is a good thing.

Anyway, let us know what you think about the interior of the new C8 Corvette and stay tuned for the big reveal later tonight, at 8 p.m. PDT.

    -late…… And I’m talking to you Mike.

    • donald seymour

      I was just about to call them out.

  • Mr. EP9

    Are you sure someone didn’t just leave their tablet sitting on the dash because it looks sort of tacked on as an afterthought.

    • donald seymour

      Kinda yeah, but I still like it. Albeit, it could have been integrated better.

    • DMax

      Hello time traveler. Bad news! Here in the future it has been a trend for like 5 years now. Hint: don’t look at Mercedes interiors. Lmao

  • TheBelltower

    Well damn… this actually looks really good. Not a fan of the square steering wheel with the c-ring at the top, but maybe that’s an option designed for the gents that need that sort of thing.

    • Matt

      ‘C-ring’? You mean the centre marker?

      • TheBelltower

        Sure! 😉

    • Bo Hanan

      It would seem a better fit on the Z06 and not the base. Hopefully it’s an option.

  • Tinky-Winky

    Can Americans fit inside?

    • donald seymour

      That’s, that’s actually a good question.

    • brn

      Yes, I should have no problem.

  • Ben


    Honestly, it looks like Batman’s batmobile interior. I love it. Also, I’m happy driver focused cockpits are coming back. The Japanese did them well in the 90’s (NSX, Supra, S2000, 300zx).

  • MarketAndChurch

    I don’t like the tablet but everything else looks really cool.

  • Six_Tymes

    So surprising how good this is. Honestly, anyone who bashes this is just being an idiot. This design is very impressive. I just wished the exterior looked as good.

  • robotlogic

    That interior makes it looks like there won’t be a manual version.

    • Netsphere

      there will not be dual clutch only

  • Peter Vancouver

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6e3c8b8f197ea638ac43cefcaa9b3c5e2320e6967e0af40aafbee852470027de.jpg Looks pretty tight, and I mean “small body” drivers only need apply. I’m not impressed.

    • Matt

      I guess Corvette’s need to be able to fit really fat drivers.

      • Peter Vancouver

        Not fat, but when your shoehorned into a cockpit like that, after an hour on the road you will be wishing for something else.

        • Matt

          That would be a fair consideration if you were shopping for a truck. But this is a mid-engine supercar. Interior space isn’t exactly a make-or-break (unless you physically can’t fit inside).

  • ErnieB

    This looks great.. A little on the tight side, but that’s good because it’ll force the majority of the fat white baby boomers to loose a little weight. Can’t complain about cheap looking interiors anymore.

    • brn

      Just the white ones?

      • TheAmerican2point0

        Probably the only ones that can afford it lol

    • Honda NSX-R

      Yeah that interior looks anti baby boomer to me lol

  • LJ

    That interior has zero flow. Nothing looks integrated or cohesive.

  • ErnieB

    I take back my comments below. I really think they ruined the interior with the center carnival of buttons—- this looks horrible. If they would have omitted that this interior would have worked beautifully.. so sad.

    • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

      LOL are you bipolar??

      • ErnieB

        Maybe. Maybe not.

  • gaddy

    I want one, badddd!!!!!!!!!

    • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ🍑

      Are u going to steal it? 🤭😁

      • gaddy

        I don’t have to steal grandpa. STFU

        • Mr. EP9

          Well that escalated quickly.

  • Robert

    Looks good. Can’t wait for the full reveal

  • MayTheBestCarWin05

  • Honda NSX-R

    That’s cool, but I bet people expecting cup holders inside will be pissed.

    • john1168

      They might be under that flippy panel in the center consul between the seats.

  • john1168

    I’m still not liking the great wall on the center console but I do really like the interior as a whole. Nice job.

  • ErnieB

    Btw, the driver only gets one air vent, while the passenger gets a wind tunnel… lol

    • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ🍑

      Who in the hell examine a photo that hard?

    • Bananarama

      There’s a 2nd vent under the screen for the driver…

    • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

      The driver gets 3 actually. There’s 2 vents under the tablet

      • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ🍑

        I cannot stand u.

        • Matt

          He wasn’t wrong though…

      • ErnieB

        Damn good eye!

  • Navigator Navy✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ🍑

    Yawn. No, just kidding. I have never cared for Corvettes until the current gen debuted back in 2013 as a 2014 model and I am a bit happy GM kept the car around.

  • Karl

    Will leave final judgment until more pictures are revealed.

  • Thunderbolt

    That is a very obnoxious looking tablet, whoever designed its location should have da fingers chopped.

  • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

    Exterior has leaked…..

  • Dude

    That doesn’t look like the interior of a $56k car. Kind of unfortunate; I bet it’ll start at at least $65k.

  • javier

    oh dear

  • Harry_Wild

    Do not like the red switching, makes the cabin look cheap like a Camaro!

  • TheAmerican2point0

    Why is the redline at 4k lmfao

    • brn

      It’s a diesel.

    • SteersUright

      Holy crap, good catch! Wth??

    • Alpina

      I think it is a safety feature. When the fluids are cold you can “only” rev it to 4k. When the oil warms up it climbs gradually to 7k.

  • SteersUright

    Looks much better than I expected. I don’t mind the weird shape of the steering wheel, looks unique. Its the details that makes it look so cheap and ugly, particularly the terrible looking airbag cover and the cheapo looking silver trim. Unlike Audi interior design, this seems much more “designed” rather than soundly planned. Ergonomics dont look great. Style is pretty cool though, seems special enough. Hopefully visibility isn’t modern Camaro/Corvette bad.

  • enthusia

    well, at least the interior looks good. unfortunately for everyone else, we’ll have to look at the horrid exterior.

  • Danny Boy

    Daring and original, I love it!
    Finally, something that doesn’t look like a cheap Chevrolet interior!!!

  • Matteo Tommasi

    All those buttons, people are going to crash trying to find the one they want.
    Good strategy to sell more parts.

  • Tinky-Winky

    Me, tub of lard? I’m not from the UK at all. My country sits at only 21% on the map you provided 😛

    • dumblikeyou2

      It’s either France, where smoking is considered a balanced meal, or one of the other countries that are flown over and nobody knows exists…..and smoking is part of a balanced meal as well. Thin people with black lungs that fit into small cars. Win.

      • Tinky-Winky

        I guess I really stepped on your toes that you keep trying to insult me. Very amusing comments but wrong again. I don’t know what they teach you at school but there’s much better ways to stay fit besides smoking (wtf). Like healthy diet if you’ve ever heard of it.

        • dumblikeyou2

          School had to teach how to eat properly? Did you grow with no parental guidance? That’s weird. Makes sense now.

          • Tinky-Winky

            …that I eat healthy diet instead of smoking had I listened to people like you?

  • Joseph Fontana

    It just came out, and to me, already the interior looks dated – as expected for the price. Exterior is nice looking though. I suppose GM is choosing the way of the Dodge Charger/Challenger cult – with a starting price of under $60K you get massive cheap horsepower with pseudo super-car looks. I expect the upper level builds to be quite pricey though.
