The coolest new thing on the C7

This is not my statement. It's a Fox News article that says all of the vents, but especially a vent that opens when you open the hatchback so there won't be pressure to cause resistance when closing it. Read about it here:

That's pretty cool and complex for just opening the hatch. I think this article was supposed to be the opposite of the worst thing about the C7 they ran.

...and then I went further and read the worst thing on the C7, and realized that it has an E-brake.

Not too sure how I like that
