Best Sports Car:
2013 Chevrolet Camaro V-6

Previous | Next

Few cars have looks as sinister as the Chevrolet Camaro, and even fewer have the goods to back them up. Chevy's modern-day muscle car has plenty of both, even in base form. Beyond striking looks and power, the Camaro boasts another big benefit to its owners: Resale value. In that contest, the Chevy Camaro V6 comes in first in the Sports Car segment.

A big part of the 2013 Chevy Camaro's winning formula is its V6 engine that cranks out 323 horsepower – the kind of figures that until recently were more associated with larger V8 engines. On the flip side, that same engine is rated to deliver fuel economy of up to 30 mpg, the kind of number usually connected with smaller 4-cylinder powerplants.

Yet it's those looks that continue to draw appreciators young and old. In its age-old rivalry with the Ford Mustang, it's the Chevy Camaro that simply drips with aggression, from its angry headlights to its muscular rear haunches. The Camaro's 4-passenger interior, meanwhile, is notorious for both its retro-style gauges and massive rear blind spot. If you can get beyond the lesser aspects of the cabin, you'll be pleased with features such as an available Boston Acoustics premium sound system and comfortable leather seats.

As for price, it's hard to find a car that offers this kind of bang for the buck. The Camaro's base price of just over $24,000 buys a whole lot of car – and perhaps a priceless amount of fun and attention.
