Sports Coupe Comparison - Camaro Included

Mustang beat us

Came in last because of back seat size, Visibility. But did have some pluses in their eyes especially the attention it got

Ford is all over that site. Dontcha think they may be a tad biased? And, since the Camaro is the Ford's biggest competitor...they're going to put it dead last.

Did anyone notice that they used the Mustand GT and Challenger SRT8 versus the V-6 Camaro in the test? I mean if you are going to compare premium models against a base, I would hope their premium vehicle could beat the base, but personally I don't think it does. Camaro beats the competion hands down. Next time they should let the V-8 compete against those hacks. This was FIXED.

I saw 3 Ford ads upon entering the site. That site is heavily biased.

The review is garbage.

Could the dude not make it more obvious that he is reading from a script? Listening to him was painful.

That RX8 needs to be washed, jeebus.

I don't buy that Ford influenced the scores. They didn't give the Mustang a great finish either. They should have used an SS for that comparison since they used a GT and an SRT.

Right, because the Mustang finished first with no cons and the Camaro was chosen last because it's a Chevy. If it was actually biased then you would have seen a similar outcome. The review was just based off of a different perspective than what is usually tested (ride quality/comfort instead of power/performance).

Did anyone notice that they tested a 2LT and not an SS....ROFLMAO.

I think the test comparison without the V8 is an absolute joke.

they used the base model genesis and v6 camaro against the nissan with track pack, the GT and an srt8?

i think its obvious they knew what the outcome would be even before they tested the cars

The fact that they actually included the back seat of a sports coupe in their consideration immediately nullifies any credibility I was prepared to give them.

This was a silly test. They compare an SRT8 against a bunch of other 6 cylinders and the mustang? The the genesis wasn't even the top of the line, it was a 4 cylinder turbo. They didn't say anything bad about the camaro (1st in outward styling, 3rd in performance), so what exactly put it last? back seats and visibility? Silly.
