New cars: Chevrolet Camaro

What the critics say about the $30,995 Chevrolet Camaro

Chicago Tribune
What we like: “Great styling,” superb handling, standard stability and traction control, and side curtain air bags. But the rear seat and trunk are cramped, the mirrors are too small, and the visibility of gauges and some instruments is poor. Also, a convertible model is at least a year away. Options include sunroof, automatic transmission, leather seats, and a 6.2-liter V8.

The New York Times
The heyday of this working-class hero, like that of the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger, is long gone. But sexy retro coupes can still bring customers into the showroom, even if they end up buying a Malibu family sedan. This reasonably priced base model offers a V6 with 304 hp, comparable to that in a $45,000 Mercedes. Highway mileage is 29 mpg.

Autoweek
When equipped with a manual transmission and a Corvette 426-hp V8, this 3,860-pound brute will hit 60 mph in 4.7 seconds. The galvanized-steel unibody is more forward-looking than its Ford and Dodge retro competitors, and “there’s not a rattle to be heard” on rough surfaces. But environmental pressures and tough times for Detroit may mean the Camaro is not long for this world.
