2016 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe

Pros: Surprisingly peppy base engines; strong performance of V8 models; decent ride quality for the class

Cons: Tight rear leg room; small trunk opening with high liftover; poor visibility

CG Says: The redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Camaro is smaller, lighter, and more technologically advanced than its predecessor. Engines range from a 275-horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four, to a 335-hp 3.6-liter V6, and up to a 455-hp 6.2-liter V8. The new model is a little more nimble than the ’15 Camaro, with easier turn-in and quicker recovery of their equilibrium coming out of corners. Even long-limbed front-seat occupants will find enough leg room to get comfortable. However, the Camaro is essentially a 2-passenger car; there’s limited leg room in back. Initially only a coupe was available, but a convertible joined the roster midyear. The previous generation Camaro was a strong player in its class and the new car builds on its strengths.
