Handling Ranked 2010 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS Coupe RWD worse.
"They handled very similar in most aspects, but the car seemed smaller and lighter. Traction control usually kicked in while shifting into second on the G8 GT. Also, while at higher speeds, there was more immediate acceleration by the G8 GT."
Back Seats Ranked 2010 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS Coupe RWD worse.
"Much roomier. It is a full size sedan with a performance motor."
