Another retro muscle car. Chevrolet’s car at the moment is the Corvette, but Camaro has always been the bad boy. Very spirited and powerful, with almost savage attitude and loads of flaws. Still, you had to love him. Just like that fun, but a bit self-destructive cousin you love so much. Well, Camaro’s latest rendition offers much to love once again.

Exterior

There are two body styles – convertible and coupe, and they both look great. This car is a part of that retro hype and that is clearly visible. The front is huge and lovely honeycomb grille really draws attention. The hood looks massive and really makes this car look angry, and this perfectly matches the furious looking lights.

The rear part is small and that gave us a small trunk, but, to be honest, who cares about a trunk in a high performance car. This short rear deck made it look great and very reminiscent of the old model. So, the hell with the trunk size.

There are other perks as well. The wheels range from 18 to 21 inches in diameter, power mirrors are standard, as well as the rear spoiler. The Camaro looks just like it should. It looks massive and beefed up with loads of muscle and aggressiveness, but still unpretentious. After all, this car really is massive, uncurbed and aggressive so it looks just like it should.

Interior

The inside is retro looking as well. The rearview mirror is frameless, the upholstery can be cloth or leather, and the instrument cluster has some of that good old spirit as well.
Still, there are many benefits of the modern era in the new Chevrolet Camaro, such as an USB port for the MP3, heated seats and power adjustable front seats. The materials are also high quality.

The driver’s position is great. There is absolutely everything you might need in this car, but it still feels uncluttered.

However, there are some downsides. The backseat space is rather small, and definitely not for the long journeys. The same goes for the trunk. Still, bear in mind that this is a high performance car and that many of its peers do not have back seats at all and pack an even smaller trunk. The door handles are also placed rather strangely, but after a while you get used to this. The downsides are nothing compared to the thrills that the Camaro has to offer.

Engine

There are four different engine setups, ranging from the 3.6 l V6 with 323 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque; through the two SS models with 6.2 V8s with 400 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque for the auto model and 426 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque for the manual; to the most powerful 6.2 l V8 ZL1 with 580 hp and 556 lb-ft of torque. The transmission can be six-speed manual or automatic. The handling is not up to the highest standards, but this is not surprising when you remember that this is a bad boy. It is supposed to bring you trouble but still put a smile on your face. From the first view, the successor is set to become a classic as well.
