2014 Chevrolet Camaro vs. 2014 Lexus IS 250C Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Camaro than the Lexus IS 250C. The Lexus IS 250C will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Camaro.

Convenience
The Lexus IS 250C requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Camaro, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Camaro or the Lexus IS 250C, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Camaro will cost more in transportation costs than the Lexus IS 250C.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Camaro is much wider than the Lexus IS 250C, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Camaro, which is slightly longer than the Lexus IS 250C.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Camaro does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Lexus IS 250C.

Handling
The Chevrolet Camaro has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus IS 250C, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Camaro has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus IS 250C. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Camaro and the Lexus IS 250C. The Chevrolet Camaro has less cargo capacity than the Lexus IS 250C, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Camaro is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus IS 250C.
