Front Seats Ranked 2016 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT Coupe RWD better.
"This reason depends on what features you get with your Camaro but according to my Camaro the leather seats don’t wear out even after owning this can for almost 3 years. It resists liquid spills, making it more easy forme to get rid of the spill."
Family Car Ranked 2016 Chevrolet Camaro 1LT Coupe RWD worse.
"I made the wrong choice. I accidentally mixed up the to cars while making my choices. The regular Camaro is better because it has more interior space along with more cargo space."
