Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the Camaro ZL1 1LE Coupe’s tires are larger than the largest tires available on the AMG C 63 Cabriolet (F:305/30R19 & R:325/30R19 vs. F:255/40R18 & R:285/35R18).

The Camaro SS 1LE/ZL1’s tires provide better handling because they have a lower 30 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the AMG C 63 Cabriolet’s optional 35 series front tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Camaro offers optional 20-inch wheels. The AMG C 63 Cabriolet’s largest wheels are only 19-inches in the front and 20-inches in the rear.

The Camaro has a standard easy tire fill system. When inflating the tires, the vehicle’s integrated tire pressure sensors keep track of the pressure as the tires fill and tell the driver when the tires are inflated to the proper pressure. The AMG C 63 Cabriolet doesn’t offer vehicle monitored tire inflation.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires available on the Camaro can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The AMG C 63 Cabriolet doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

Chassis

The Chevrolet Camaro may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 100 to 900 pounds less than the Mercedes AMG C 63 Cabriolet.

Passenger Space

The Camaro Convertible has 3.7 cubic feet more passenger volume than the AMG C 63 Cabriolet (85 vs. 81.3).

Cargo Capacity

The Camaro Convertible has a larger trunk than the AMG C 63 Cabriolet with its top down (7.3 vs. 7 cubic feet).

Ergonomics

The Camaro’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge - which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The AMG C 63 Cabriolet does not have an oil pressure gauge.

On extremely cold winter days, the Camaro’s optional heated steering wheel provides comfort, allowing the driver to steer safely and comfortably before the car heater warms up. The AMG C 63 Cabriolet doesn’t offer a heated steering wheel.
