Expert Quotes:

the rear half just looks too wide
AutoWeek

The reverse mohawk in the roof is meant to tie the car to the twin-cockpit silhouette of the Corvette.
Autoblog

Long hood? Check. Short deck? Check. Retro-styled instrument cluster? Check. A center-console gauge pack inspired by the 1969 Camaro? Check.
ConsumerGuide

Its chiseled, angled shape looks even better in person.
Popular Mechanics

evocative, contemporary styling that thankfully misses being totally retro
Car and Driver

Retro-themed, yet filtered through a modern lens, the new Camaro's design hasn't changed much since its introduction just a few years ago, though the new ZL1 adds some serious aggression to match its raised performance.

All Camaros, whether V-6 or 580-horsepower ZL1, feature bold faces, strong flared fenders, and low canopies that combine to give a sporty, muscular stance. The tall, bluff front and rear overhangs give the Camaro a feeling of size and mass, but the low-slung bumpers and side skirts keep it looking sleek.

Inside, the 2012 Camaro's cabin is more retro-themed than the outside, with nods to the Camaros of the 1960s in the low-mounted console gauge cluster, vintage type face, and nested bezels. Despite the retro nods, the camaro isn't quite as bold as other sporty coupes in the same price range, like the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, or even the Ford Mustang.

Conclusion

While the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro's styling won't suit everyone, for those that understand the muscle-car appeal, it makes a dramatic statement.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
