Comparison Review

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

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 is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Prius Prime. 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 Toyota Prius Prime.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Camaro has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius Prime. 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 Toyota Prius Prime.

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

Warranty
The Chevrolet Camaro comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Prius Prime.
