Detailed Review

Chevrolet alias Chevy, is a well-known subsidiary of General Motors Company. Chevy is globally famous for its entry-level sports car named as 'Camaro', which was first introduced in 1967. The company has recently introduced 50th anniversary model of the popular 'Camaro'. Though the look resembles its predecessors, the 2017 coupe, 2017 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe seems a bit more muscular in the first look!

The Camaro comes with 3 engine options to choose from. LS and LT trims have the 2-liter turbocharged engine as standard while the SS trims get the 6.2-Liter Turbocharged V8. The ZL1 is one beast of a car as it carries a 6.2-Liter Supercharged V8 under its hood. There is also an optional 3.6-Liter V6 available for the LT trims.

"A strong performer that blends speed with precision and enjoyment in a way previous Camaros never did. The SS V8 is stout, but even the LT's V6 is punchy."-Edmunds

Engine & Transmission

Chevrolet Camaro 1LS is boosted with a 2.0L Turbo, 4-cylinder engine which produces the best-in-class power of 275 HP. The engine is competent and muscular enough for a sporty Camaro experience. The competitors like Subaru BRZ Premium, Toyota 86, and Honda Accord Coupe LX-S feature unimpressive power counts of 205, 205, and 181 HP respectively.

The powerful engine in the Camaro Coupe 2017 produces an astonishing amount of torque in the segment which counts at 295 lb.-ft. At last, the rivals are far behind from the Camaro in this segment. Chevrolet clearly outshines its competitors in engine and transmission segment.

The powerful 2.0L engine shows its caliber as you put your foot on the accelerator.

The quarter-mile test results also come out impressive. The Camaro Coupe took just 11.1 seconds in measuring a quarter-mile while the competitors like Subaru BRZ Premium, Toyota 86, and Honda Accord Coupe LX-S take 15.0, 15.0, and 15.6 seconds respectively in covering a quarter-mile distance.

Ride & Handling

The overall riding experience was exciting as the acceleration and engine are thrilling enough for the segment. The car boosts 0-60 mph in just 4.3 seconds, and transmission was manual though smooth. The seating is decent though aren't much moveable. The leather covering on the seats with contrast stitching makes the looks richer. The material quality was acceptable for the interiors though it's not premium at all.

There are additional utilities like cupholders and small storage spaces present on the 2017 Camaro 1LS. The steering was small and easily adjustable; it delivers strong and confident riding experience but riding on congested roads is not that convenient due to lack of visibility. The blind-spot monitor and rear-view camera helps a bit regarding the visibility but the still lacks in visibility when compared with the rivals. The suspension was fluid even on a bit harsh road. The overall riding experience was sporty and impressive if we ignore some minor flaws.

Braking

The braking system offered in the Camaro Coupe 2017 is firm and convenient. The braking pads offer decent grip and a bigger size. The braking pads count at 12.4 and 12.6 inches for the front and rear pads respectively. Although the company has tried to make the new 2017 coupe lighter, Camaro Coupe 2017 still weighs higher than its competitors at 3354 lbs.

2017 Chevrolet Camaro Interior

7.0/10

"It's improved over the outgoing car in layout and materials quality. But it still suffers from poor outward visibility and trades function and space for style."-Edmunds

Seating & Comfort

The Camaro 2017 has a seating capacity of up to four passengers. The interiors are decent in looks and quality though aren't premium. The leather covers on the seats somehow enhance the interiors in looks. The utilities like cupholders, LATCH points etc. are present on the board but there was no mobile phone holder in the Camaro 2017 coupe. The seats are spacious and comfortable for the front passengers but it's not in the case of back seats. The back seats feature lower dimensions and space especially the headspace, the back seats will definitely bother the passenger especially if the passenger is six feet tall. Overall, the interiors are decent but the back seats aren't spacious.
