2017 Chevrolet Camaro vs. 2016 Volkswagen Beetle Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Camaro will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Beetle.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Camaro as you will with the Volkswagen Beetle, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). The Chevrolet Camaro will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Volkswagen Beetle, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Camaro is much higher than that for the Volkswagen Beetle.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Camaro is much wider than the Volkswagen Beetle, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Camaro, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Volkswagen Beetle.

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 Volkswagen Beetle.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Camaro has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen Beetle. 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 Volkswagen Beetle. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chevrolet Camaro as you will in the Volkswagen Beetle.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Camaro comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Beetle.
