Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

If you’ve sat in a Camaro coupe, then you’ve effectively sat in a Camaro convertible. There aren’t many differences. All versions are left-hand drive, which may prove problematic for some. Inside, those who’ve owned a Vauxhall or Chevrolet in the past few years will immediately feel at home. The steering wheel, indicator stalks and minor switchgear are lifted straight from the General Motors back catalogue.

The interior looks the part, with it being suitably brash and bold, and it’s a comfortable place to be. The instruments and controls are all well placed and intuitive to use, while the heads-up-display is a neat touch. It actually works well too, instead of just being a flashy gimmick. There’s also a neat cluster of ancillary gauges in front of the gear lever.

Some trim is a little thin and frail, however, and feels cheap. This contradicts with the overall solid feel of the car. The fit and finish isn’t on a par with convertibles from European manufacturers, but the Camaro makes up for that in other areas thanks to its straight-line performance and attention-grabbing looks.

There’s plenty of room in the front of the Camaro convertible, with a good range of seat adjustments. The steering wheel adjusts for rise and reach, meaning finding a good driving position isn’t difficult. Headroom is also acceptable. Visibility in the coupe versions can be somewhat of an issue. The convertible, while equally restrictive in some areas to see out of with the roof up, is obviously a vast improvement with the top down.

The windscreen pillars can impede your view when cornering, however, depending on your seat position. The cabin is refined, with road and wind noise being well muted. The ride is also impressive. Despite its large wheels the Camaro doesn’t crash into potholes while its well-tuned suspension helps it ride crests and bumps with ease. It’s also a comfortable place to be, even at speed with the top down.
