2011 Camaro continues accolades - Named one of Top 5 Head-Turning Cars Under $25k

Yahoo article naming Camaro one of the current Top 5 head-turning cars for under $25k.

Head-Turning Cars Under 25K
...

2011 Chevrolet Camaro

What is it?


The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro is the American automaker’s red, white and blue-collar muscle car. Although the Camaro is available with a choice of V-6 or V-8 engines, sticking to our $25,000 price ceiling means you’ll have to opt for a less powerful model.


In the case of the Camaro, though, making do with the base 312-bhp 3.6-liter V-6 is hardly what we’d call a performance sacrifice. It’s plenty quick for daily driving. An entry-level Camaro LS comes with cruise control, power front seats, power windows and air conditioning, all for approximately $23,500. That leaves room in your budget for essentials, like optional racing stripes!


Why is it hot?


Introduced last year as a 2010 model, the Camaro still looks like a wild concept car. From its menacing blacked-out grille to its bulging rear fenders, American muscle cars don’t get any better looking than this.


Just don’t expect to see much of the outside world from behind the wheel. The Camaro’s low greenhouse looks cool, but it has blind spots big enough to hide a bowling alley. At least the steel wheels on the base model will be cheaper to fix if you hit a curb.

I would have to agree on one fore sure, maybe two. The Camaro is a head turner and maybe the genesis. IMVHO

Right, I don't really see a better looking car on the road now, excluding the exotics

Nice!

It certainly does catch attention. It will surely fade in the upcoming months and years, but for now..ROCK ON

I'm happy to see the Mustang also is on the list!

I'm not sure there is anything there to brag about. What does it really say about the Mustang and the Camaro when they are mentioned in the same breath with a Volkswagen, a Hyundai and a Kia?

GTI baby...........German Engineering....Cause We Hot...........The Original Hot Hatch



The Genesis is a nice sports car,GTI isn't a "sports car" but it's sporty,classy interior...no plastic and it is fast not as fast as a Camaro but don't let the "hatchback" look fool ya...........and it did say under $25,000.....I would be skeptical if they had put a Challenger in there...they don't cost under $25,000..........even if they were stripped.

The Volkswagen Golf must have been chosen because it turns heads away.

didn't think the LS came with power seats? and while it does have a sizable blind spot you can adjust your mirrors to take most of that away IMO.
