Although spacious and practical, the Chevy Bolt EV's interior quality and appearance don't befit its $30,000-plus price point. It looks and feels more as if it belongs in a cheaper economy car. It's clear where General Motors spent its money: on the Bolt's big battery.

The Bolt enters 2019 without changing the interior design and materials or updating the standard features and options. While it remains incredibly spacious inside-and crossover lovers will enjoy its raised seat height-the Chevy's many hard plastics and unremarkable list of features (no power-adjustable seats are one example) continue to draw comparisons with cheaper consumer cars.

Blind Spots, Visibility, and Obscured Roadway

Roof pillars protect occupants in a rollover crash, but they also create blind spots. We determine visibility by measuring the location and width of each pillar using an H-Point Machine and a laser beam (surrogates for a driver and eyeball, respectively). Front and rear visibility are calculated by subtracting the viewable area blocked by the pillars from a perfect 180-degree score.

The cabin of the 2019 Bolt EV is the same as the 2018 version. For more information on the interior, read our in-depth review of the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV.
