The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevrolet Camaro may be slightly polarizing to the eye, but it's hard to argue with the performance capabilities found in the ZL1 and Z/28 versions of this muscle car. The 2015 Volkswagen Golf and GTI trade flashy looks for great interior and cargo space, especially in the SportWagen model—but they don't give up anything for driving fun.
