The 6th generation Chevrolet Camaro is smaller, lighter and therefore more agile in comparison to the previous Chevrolet Camaro generation.
With the design based on the previous generation model, the 2016 Chevy Camaro exterior is completely updated and built-up. It is also reduced in size. A sleeker, longer roofline, which is reminiscent of Sedan profile, and apparently shorter wheelbase tidy up the lines out back. The headlamps are deep-set in a split upper grille. Although there are some occasional softer and smoother lines, the vehicle still looks pretty aggressive much like its predecessors.
The car retains the same chassis that the previous models had.
New 2016 Chevrolet Camaro has a somewhat changed platform which will result in fuel consumption reduction.
The 2016 Chevrolet Camaro interior has been redesigned for better ergonomics, more high-technology, and an improved driver position by means of utilizing better materials.
When it comes to comfortability part, the car has height-adjustable driver seat and folding rear seatback, all covered in cloth; needless to say it’s also equipped with air conditioning and interior air filtration. As for the power features, it has remote power door locks, 2 one-touch power windows and power mirrors. It has a tilt and telescopic steering wheel accompanied by audio and cruise controls.
The car has a rich infotainment system which includes an element antenna, 6 total speakers with 80 watts stereo output, AM/FM stereo, Sirius XM satellite radio with 3 months of provided satellite radio service, an auxiliary MP3 audio input and a USB input. As for the telematics, Bluetooth wireless data link for hands-free phone and OnStar telecommunications service are included.
