The ’20 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray ($78,820 as tested) was named a 2020 Wards 10 Best Interiors winner from a list of 32 eligible new interiors. Remaining winners will be announced one a day, in random order, until June 24. Recipients will be honored Aug. 19 during a three-day virtual event that includes the WardsAuto Interiors Conference.

According to the website, “To borrow a phrase from ‘Top Gun,’ the sexy, C8 Corvette’s alluring exterior is writing checks this dramatic interior is fully capable of cashing.”

The site describes the harmony of metal, plastic, carbon fiber and microsuede as well done, also praising the excellent color matching across materials in a heavily monochromatic color scheme.

“A passerby need only look through the window to recognize the latest Corvette interior takes a monumental leap in styling, quality and materials relative to past efforts.

A driver lucky enough to climb behind the wheel will determine immediately the groundbreaking achievement of this new Corvette interior: the premium leather-wrapped instrument panel, the tastefully applied carbon-fiber trim, the handsomely configured push-button transmission that saves precious room in the center console and the microsuede used generously on the instrument panel, center console, door trim, steering wheel, headliner and pillar trim.”
