Now before you think the new one is old-fashioned, be apprised it is thoroughly contemporary, as well as highly intuitive to operate.

There is more than ample legroom in all seating positions—save the center rear. You may recall the length of the Volt’s T-shaped battery pack runs down the center of the car. So while there is a center seatbelt in the back, anyone sitting there will ride with their legs spread very far apart. Volt boasts plenty of storage compartments, and the rear hatch makes loading cargo easy. Cargo capacity measures 10.6 cubic feet behind the rear seats.                                                                                                                                                                                                                        The 2016 Volt offers a full slate of cutting edge driver’s aids.
