  • Any secret compartments?

    Really liked the disappearing display on the C7 and the floor box in the back. Has anyone noticed similar features in the C8?

    Also is there a brake-hold feature on the car where you can depress the brake pedal at stoplights and not have to hold your foot on the brake all the time.

    So far I am unaware of any hidden compartments. Nicely however, the glove box and the center console compartment are larger.

    Z06 coming late this summer: Hypersonic Gray HTC, two tone blue interior, complete high wing/aero package. CCB’s, with every piece of visible carbon fiber available to us. Lifetime, annual contributors, and 24 year members of National Corvette Museum. Home is the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

        And I think I read that the center console lid now locks, unlike the C7. Yep, from the Chevy website:

            There appears to be a lever at the bottom of the information/pdr screen what does that button do?

              I think it controls the vent below the display. There are similar levers above the glove compartment to the right, and I think I saw a video showing those operating the vents.

                Ok that makes sense. Just thought that maybe that could also lower and raise that screen but just wishful thinking on my part. Thanks

                  If you pull on that lever hard enough it will probably lower the display… At least once…

                        Brake-hold feature is extremely convenient and it'd be a tough adjustment going to a car without one. Wouldn't be too surprised if the C8 didn't have that though.

                          The C8 still has an electric parking brake, so I expect the automatic hold feature is still there.

                            Actually I was referring to brake hold where if you depress the brake pedal a touch more at a stoplight you don’t need to keep your foot there the whole time.

                            I have hill hold on my GMC so you’d think it would be easy for them to adapt it to the C8

                              While I understand the convenience of a brake hold option one should also think of sitting at a red light in a low visibility vehicle without your brake lights on and an approaching vehicle does not realize you are stopped until it is too late and smashes your car. If they have a dash camera and you have no brake lights deployed and are stopped you could be found at fault for the accident.
