Christian Wardlaw Test Drive Review:

Ever heard the term “pony car”? It is a direct reference to the Ford Mustang and the American 2-door sports coupe segment it has dominated since 1964. Today, the 2018 Mustang is less r...

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."

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."
