7. 2016 Chevrolet Camaro
This luxury convertible comes at a great time for Chevrolet, with its sales in the U.S having soared by 7% to 195,598 last year. The 2016 Camaro Convertible gets several new exterior features including an updated grille, front fascia, LED fog lamps and 20 inch polished aluminum wheels. It also gets new safety features such as parallel parking assistance, lane departure warning and perpendicular parking assistance.
Due to the smaller, lighter architecture of the 2016 Camaro, the exterior is now tighter and sleeker. The car is up to 390 pounds lighter allowing for more responsive braking, and a more nimble performance. There is a fastback profile and the aerodynamic design means that no matter which color you choose, you will be noticed. The color options include black, white, deep and light blue, red, and yellow. The drop top can be lowered up to speeds of 30 MPH.
A leather wrapped steering wheel with a flat-bottom gives more knee space, and a center console layout that has been upgraded from buttons to dials for ease of use. There is ample storage place yet exceptional ergonomics for shifting. The seats are bolstered and come with optional heating for your comfort. They also provide plenty support when enduring g-forces.
With a 6-speaker audio system as standard, as well as cruise control a power outlet, and rear vision camera, there are a lot more optional technologies to upgrade your driving experience. With ApplePlay, Head-Up Display, voice activated controls and a wireless phone charging pad as optional extras, you can make your Chevvy Camaro extra unique.
