Much nicer interior and better day to day car than the Camaro.
Handling Ranked 2018 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS Coupe RWD worse.
"Better overall driving experience. The camaro is more of a traditional sports car, but for daily driving the mustang is a better choice."
Back Seats Ranked 2018 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS Coupe RWD worse.
"The mustang was not much better, but there was a little more room in the back."
Would Buy Ranked 2018 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS Coupe RWD worse.
"I ordered a 2019 GT premium, I wanted specific options and packages. My experience at multiple Chevrolet dealers was horrible. They would not let me order a 2019, only wanted to sell me what was on their lots. With the model refresh for 2019 there was no reason to by a 2018."
