I think it's an improvement, but I still think it looks bloated and cumbersome. The slit windows are also a deal breaker for me

I never have been a fan of the Camaro over the Mustang, and it's not a Ford vs Chevy thing as I have owned products from both. When the Camaro came back it was cool but the interior looked cheap. The slight restyle a few years back I think went in the wrong direction, especially with the tail lights. This new one is no leap forward in the looks department and interior still looks cheap. The saving grace is that it has lost weight and is now on the ATS chassis. But given the choice I'd still go for the Mustang. I do look forward to the Firebird/Trans Am body kits though.

I still prefer the Mustang too. Like Backroad101 mentioned, my biggest issue is the interior. I like the exterior look but never liked the interior. I was really hoping they would have fixed that in this newest version but it looks like they didn't. The instrument cluster just looks huge and out of proportion to the rest of the interior. The Mustang has a much nicer interior.

As for the windows, I didn't have a problem seeing out when I drove a friends Camaro a few years ago. It wasn't as bad as it seemed it would be. The Camaro I drove was a 6-cyl. I've got to say it did have a lot of pep to it. Problem with it was it sounded like an angry sewing machine and didn't have the expected 6-cyl grumble that older GM 6's had.

...and looking again, the rear "wing" spoiler I've seen on the pics of the red Camaro looks like a cheap afterthought universal spoiler. The lip rear spoiler looks better

Yeah the new Vette just has not grown on me yet. The exterior design seems too complicated in design, especially the rear. They are already talking the next gen being mid engine.
