The interior of the 2014 Corvette Stingray

In the current C6 Corvette, the interior is something you try to simply overlook because the rest of the car is so good. The switchgear is straight out of the GM bargain parts bin, while the thin and flimsy seats are designed by Spanish Inquisition star Torquemada and built, apparently, by Playskool. In a $25,000 car, the interior was forgivable, but at the Corvette’s price point it drew near-universal criticism.

GM listened, and the upcoming C7 Corvette Stingray boasts the first interior that was finalized in a collaboration between the design and production teams. As the video explains, no surface was overlooked, and the new Stingray will clearly show more attention to detail, fit and finish.

Even the seats, from their description, sound better, and we can’t wait to get behind the wheel of the new Stingray. To be honest, we never saw ourselves as the Corvette type, but the C7 allegedly has the performance and style to make us reconsider that. If this video is any indication, the Corvette finally has the interior it deserves, too.

New spy pictures of the 2012 Mercedes B-Class have emerged. The prototype has a strong resemblance to the BlueZero concept which debuted at the North American International Auto Show last year.

The 2012 Mercedes B-Class will be coming with a longer wheelbase, a Mercedes-Benz GLK-like grille, a panoramic glass sunroof and a tailgate-mounted spoiler. We also get a peek of the interior from one of the photos. But, unfortunately, we only get to see the rear seatbacks and the front armrest.

The new 2012 Mercedes-Benz B-Class will be sportiest yet as a high-performance AMG variant was confirmed by the tuning arm’s outgoing boss Volker Mornhinweg late last month. AMG currently offers V-8 engines, but for the B-Class a new specially tuned four-cylinder engine will be developed.

The current Mercedes-Benz B-Class has enjoyed reasonable success in most of the markets. But the next-generation model due in 2011 is expected to sell in even higher volumes.
