convertible. The main difference to the coupe version is the introduction of a fabric soft-top which can be retracted while driving at speeds below 48km/h.

In terms of size and design, the new Camaro convertible is identical to the coupe version and also saw its weight reduced by 90kg compared to the previous generation.

The new Camaro generation has a new set of dimensions which immediately differentiates it from the outgoing fifth generation. It is 57mm shorter, 20mm narrower and 28mm lower. It was built based on GM's Alpha platform and features a 60kg lighter structure than the previous model. Kerb weight of the new model has also been reduced by 90kg.

The engine lineup of the Camaro takes the Chevrolet model to new performance benchmarks but it is also makes it more efficient than ever. The base model is powered by a new 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that produces 275hp and 400Nm of torque. It takes the car to 60mph in less than six seconds and GM estimates an average consumption of 7.8l/100km, making it the most efficient Camaro ever.

Another new engine making its debut on the Camaro is a 3.6-litre V6 petrol with 335hp and 385Nm of torque. The new power unit includes cylinder deactivation technology for the first time.

Both engines will be combined with a six-speed manual transmission or an optional new eight-speed automatic with steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

The new Camaro SS will be the most powerful version at launch. It will be powered by the same engine featured on the Corvette Stingray, the 6.2-litre small block V8 with 455hp and 617Nm of torque. The SS also gets cylinder deactivation along with direct injection and variable valve timing.
