Motor Trend’s Car of the Year Award Goes to 2016 Camaro
The cars were taken to Hyundai's California Proving Grounds for a week of instrumented testing. After these tests, the field was narrowed down to seven finalists: Audi TT, BMW 7 Series, Chevrolet Camaro, Honda Civic, Mazda MX-5 Miata, Mercedes-Benz GT S, and Toyota Mirai. These vehicles were then driven for hundreds of miles in real-world road trips before Motor Trend’s nine judges voted the all-new Chevrolet Camaro the 2016 Motor Trend Car of the Year.
Based on General Motor's Alpha platform architecture, this completely redesigned sixth-generation Camaro is sharper looking inside and out and has the latest in technology, including some interesting gadgets like Apple CarPlay and 4G LTE Wi-Fi. The new Camaro is built for driving enthusiasts, sporting a chassis that is hundreds of pounds lighter than the previous generation and available with three different engines. You can choose from the high-tech, turbocharged 275-horsepower four-cylinder engine, a sporty yet fuel-efficient 335-horsepower V-6, or a menacing 455-horsepower V-8.
"Our 2016 Car of the Year, the Chevrolet Camaro, is one of the finest driving vehicles in the world at any price," said Edward Loh, Editor-in-chief of Motor Trend, "though its price is well within reach of the average consumer."
