Andrew Newton Preview:

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."

It doesn’t have a lot of space. It’s better if you use it as a “personal” car.
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."
