This is the new Chevrolet Camaro, an updated version of the American muscle car now in its sixth-generation. And for the first time Chevrolet has made it available with a four-cylinder engine. 

For a mid-life facelift the Camaro has undergone quite a transformation. A new headlight and grille arrangement has been introduced which, according to Chevrolet, also helps aide airflow and engine cooling.

The flagship Camaro SS gets a slightly different front-end look with a larger air intake.

Inside the biggest change is the arrival of a new infotainment system; a seven-inch display is standard, while a larger eight-inch touchscreen can be added as an option. Elsewhere a reversing camera, forward collision warning and an uprated Performance Data recorder have been introduced. 

For the first time buyers also have the option of a four-cylinder turbo in the Camaro. Called the Camaro Turbo 1LE, it’s powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, which develops 272bhp and 400Nm of torque.

It remains rear-wheel drive and can be paired only with a six-speed manual gearbox, while stiffer suspension and tuned dampers are also included. 

The launch of the new 2.0-litre Camaro is a move that follows on from Ford’s introduction of a four-cylinder Mustang in 2016.
