Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW Z4, drivers may find the Chevrolet Camaro a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW Z4 as you will with the Chevrolet Camaro, 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 BMW Z4 is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Camaro. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW Z4 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Camaro.

Dimensions
The BMW Z4 is a little narrower than the Chevrolet Camaro, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the BMW Z4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Camaro.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW Z4 is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Camaro. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The BMW Z4 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Camaro, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
The BMW Z4 has less seating than the Chevrolet Camaro, making the Chevrolet Camaro the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW Z4 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Chevrolet Camaro.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW Z4 than that of the Chevrolet Camaro.
