Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Prius 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 Toyota Prius in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Toyota Prius you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Camaro, due to its tank size and 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). The Chevrolet Camaro will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota Prius, 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 Chevrolet Camaro and the Toyota Prius have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Camaro is much wider than the Toyota Prius, 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 Toyota Prius.

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 Toyota Prius.

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

Utility
The Chevrolet Camaro has less seating than the Toyota Prius, making the Toyota Prius the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Camaro has significantly less cargo room than the Toyota Prius, 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 Toyota Prius.
