Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Civic Type R than the Chevrolet Camaro, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Camaro and the Honda Civic Type R in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Camaro you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda Civic Type R, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Honda Civic Type R, 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 Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Camaro is much higher than that for the Honda Civic Type R.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Camaro is a little wider than the Honda Civic Type R, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Honda Civic Type R.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Camaro has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Civic Type R. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
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 Honda Civic Type R.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Camaro and the Honda Civic Type R. The Chevrolet Camaro has significantly less cargo room than the Honda Civic Type R, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Camaro comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Civic Type R.
