Expert Quotes:

the rear half just looks too wide
AutoWeek

we've always been fans of the Camaro's design, despite the fact that its overt focus on styling causes a lot of interior functionality issues
Autoblog

On the outside, 1LEs get a blacked-out hood and the same matte-black look for the rear spoiler and front splitter, as well as the black ZL1 wheels.
Inside Line

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

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

The styling of the Chevy Camaro isn't polarizing--it's exaggerated for sure, but if you don't like it, you didn't want one anyway.

We're fans of the retro-tinged look, filtered as it is through a modern lens. That doesn't leave it free of criticism. There's a bold face, squat haunches, and muscular fenders, all heady and evocative of the best Camaros of the past. The front end's a bit bluff, though, and the roofline and glass areas are small, especially when the Camaro's caught from a pure side view. It's all too much to digest in one look--the way really exciting cars should be.

The 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, as does the 1LE package--both with their own aero additions, splitters, two-tone treatments, and even more hulking appearances.

Inside, the Camaro's cabin is less retro-themed than the outside, with nods to the sleds of the Sixties mostly found in the low-mounted console gauge cluster, vintage type face, and nested bezels. Despite the retro nods and gradual improvements in materials, the Camaro's interior isn't quite as useful or as well-finished as the cockpits in some other sporty coupes in the same price range, like the Hyundai Genesis Coupe, or even the Ford Mustang.

Conclusion

We get and enjoy the Camaro's cartoonish musclecar looks, but the cockpit's not in sync.

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.
