Finally got my chance to get behind the wheel of a new Bolt at my local NJ Chevy dealer.

I liked the size, shape roominess much more than my Volt. It seemed more quiet and peppy and rode smoother than the Volt. Liked the extra Regen over the Bolt. The interior was a total turnoff unfortunately. Very small uncomfortable seats, cheap hard plastics which looked very uninviting especially without the cheerfulness a sunroof might offer. On the level of an 17k car, not a 43k car.

So for now I will stick with my gen2 Volt until the next gen Bolt hopefully has an acceptable interior.

I am sure getting the range made it tough to get to a price point that is semi affordable but the terrible cheap interior would make me unhappy once the new wore off.

It has a very firm ride, which you either like or don't. Plenty of pickup even at higher speeds. Very quiet. On those three counts it beats ICE vehicles without question. For city driving and getting into and out of small spaces it's very well designed.

Definitely not a luxury car and I found the driver seat mildly uncomfortable. On the other hand the back seat has plenty of legroom and the displays and controls were well sorted and easy to use. And yeah, the top view camera was surprisingly good.
