How easy is it to drive? The Camaro is not for the faint of heart. It’s a powerful car that rages with adrenaline and muscle. Having said that, the power steering makes it a dream to drive with manoeuvrability made easier with all the technology that continuously tells you of your surroundings.

Who is this car best suited for? Confident drivers who like to have style as well as substance. The spacious boot means you don’t have to compromise too much for having a drop-top so active mums can still get the weekly shop and have fun whizzing from A to B.

Favourite thing about the car: Chevrolet’s MyLink makes using your phone in the car extremely easy. From downloading contacts to playing your fav songs on the playlist, MyLink is what every modern car needs.

Overall rating: 9/10

Performance: The Camaro had a facelift for the 2015 model and the slightly softer features make the car look a lot more slick than some of its earlier incarnations. The front-end is pointier and new bonnet vents add functionality as well as style. StabiliTrak traction control comes as standard and the roar of the engine lets everyone know when you’re approaching. Of course, the Camaro is well known the world over as being “that car from Transformers”, but rest assured, you really will feel safe and protected by the sturdy and strong motor and awesomely cool behind the wheel. Get the keys and roll out.
