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 RC 350. The Lexus RC 350 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Camaro.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Camaro as you will with the Lexus RC 350, 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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Camaro is clearly a better financial choice over the Lexus RC 350. 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 Lexus RC 350.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Camaro is much wider than the Lexus RC 350, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Camaro takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Lexus RC 350.

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 RC 350.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Camaro has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus RC 350. 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 RC 350. The Chevrolet Camaro has less cargo capacity than the Lexus RC 350, 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 RC 350.
