Bra vs 2015 camaro v6

I have a BRZ right now and have the opportunity to go to either a challenger, camaro or mustang. I do like my BRZ but it is a little too small. Thoughts form anyone who has owned one of these cars or have experience with them.

Pony's are fun with V8s and you'll love raw power.

The V6 isn't an option in any kind of "muscle car." Don't even look if you can't afford the V8.

What do you mean by too small? Not enough backseat room or you just want a bigger car from an exterior dimension perspective? The Camaro's backseat looks as tight or tighter than the BRZ.

Also, the 2016 Camaro is out and is a hundred times better than the 2015 Camaro. I think you would instantly regret buying a V6 2015 Camaro. There is nothing special about those cars. They are big on the outside, have really cheap interiors, have horrible visibility, are very heavy, and don't handle well (talking V6 here).

What don't you like about the BRZ? If you want more of a muscle car either get Mustang or the 2016 Camaro. And I tend to agree on the V8 comment, I can't tell you how many people I know who bought the 4 or 6 cylinder and regretted not getting the 8.

From my recent experience with a 2016 Mustang (V6, convertible) I couldn't agree more. I was joking that it was like a steamboat. When I turned the steering wheel, the car tilted to the side (should I say listed?), then sort of followed the steering wheel with certain delay, then tilted again in the opposite direction when it caught up. Visibility: I could mostly see the hood.


It was a relatively powerful steamboat, but still a steamboat.

Yeah... That "listing" feeling doesn't really inspire confidence, does it? I had a Lexus GS that had that same issue. It was pretty damn fast but I got pretty hairy on the corners. What? no I never wet myself! (but I came close a couple times)


I'll take the precision of the small cars.

No matter how fast any V6 Pony car is, id rather drive a Yugo. Because, deep down, you and EVERYONE that knows ANYTHING about cars will KNOW youre a ***** for not getting the V8. No two ways about it.

You would really regret getting a 2015 camaro when the Alpha Camaro is practically here.

Night and day difference between the two generations.

I must say the 2016 Camaros are super nice. I hate to admit it haha!! There is a '16 SS sitting 3 feet from me right now in the service drive-thru where I work. SS starts at 47k CAD

Mustang would be my only choice. V6. Handling is similar and you can do canyon runs too. More space, but not that much more. Better mpg imo but idk how you feel about Ford. Im biased. I dislike Ford.

What about a WRX Turbo?

who cares about that lack of respect? Buy what you want, when you want.

Last I remember, respect from random strangers on the internet car forums didnt pay for my last 5+ cars. I did.


If OP wants power, like its been stated before, he can always go FI or engine swap. If he wants room, then he can get a Venza or Highlander if he so chose to.

Don't limit your desires and pleasures to those others enjoy guys. Do what makes you happy, and dont worry, be happy.




If I had a rice car i so dearly loved all riced up and the car community gave me sh!t for it, id just leave the community. Ain't gonna put my happiness into jeopardy lol
