2017 Chevrolet Camaro Expert Rundown Review

MARK TAKAHASHI: I'm Edmunds editor Mark Takahashi, and here's an expert rundown of the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro. Just one look at the Chevy Camaro and there's no mistaking that it's built for fun. Even before you start it up, the sharp styling can get your pulse quickening. But it does come at a price. That hunkered down looks sacrifices outward visibility. And it's far from practical in an everyday sense. Let's face it though, this car is about performance, from the very capable base V6 to the burly V8 and the new 650 horsepower ZL1, the Camaro has you covered. The Camaro's trunk is tiny, even by most car standards, and is further hampered by a narrow opening and a tall lift over height. The rear seats are also comically small making them better suited for trunk overflow than holding passengers. The rest of the interior doesn't fare that much better. A lot of the controls are awkwardly placed and difficult to tell apart. Points are further deducted for the strange touchscreen placement and its shiny surface that picks up all sorts of reflections. The bottom line for the 2017 Camaro is it gets great scores for style and performance, but falls well-short of the mark set by rivals. The iconic Ford Mustang and sinister Dodge Challenger form a great three way battle. And the BMW M2 is also a strong alternative. In a word, the Camaro is simply awesome. And there's no shame in making some sacrifices for that. If you'd like to see more Edmund's expert rundowns, hit subscribe.
