2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS: I Like This Character Line
March 10, 2010
A crisp horizontal line sweeps across the dash of our 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS and flows through to the rearmost end of either doortop panel. When the doors are closed, this one design element has a strong unifying effect, as the whole cabin feels like a single, enclosed space -- a genuine cockpit.
The line also has the effect of lowering the very high Camaro dash. The effect is more psychological than actual, but I'm sure the small windshield area would be more bothersome without this character line.
At night, I like this design element even better, because a thin ribbon of turquoise (or aquamarine) light flows all the way through, to the rear edges of the door panels.
This character line also helps distinguish (for better or for worse) the 2010 Camaro from the Pontiac G8. From the cabin, the muscle car feels completely different from the big sedan.
