2021 BMW 4-Series vs. 2021 Chevrolet Camaro


When it comes to great looks and brilliant performance, the 2021 BMW 4-Series is streets ahead of any other vehicle in its category. This two-door series from BMW distinguishes itself as a true sports car with the looks and performance to go with it. Despite being a two-door sports sedan, the 2021 4-Series is still a very functional car with enough leg space in the rear and a generous trunk space. The 2021 Chevrolet Camaro on the hand delivers on the performance and is a great car to ride. However, it is a very impractical car for anything else. The rear seat is almost unusable by adults due to the limited leg and head space. Here is a comparison of these two popular two-door sports sedans and a verdict at the end of the comparison.

Design & Style

One of the outstanding qualities of the 4-Series is the distinctive sporty design. With a low-hanging profile, flared side panels, and aggressive lines, the 4-Series is one of the sportiest sedans available in the market. The 4-Series also features a plush interior with premium materials lining every bit of the cabin. The 4-Series also features an instrument panel that is intuitively designed for easy use. That said, this is an excellent car that will turn heads anywhere.

The styling of the Camaro is also highly distinctive and has made the Camaro one of the most identifiable cars in the US. But beyond the exterior styling, the 2021 Camaro has some serious design issues. Rear space is so tiny as to make it impractical. Trunk space is virtually nonexistent. The cabin is so cramped that this is a car that can only appeal to those who are happy to sacrifice every other functionality of a car for the sake of premium engine performance.

Technology & Safety

As one would expect from a BMW model, the 2021 4-Series features outstanding tech and safety features. Infotainment is via a superb 8-inch infotainment system that can be upgraded to a ten-inch system for those who want more. Smartphone integration is standard, as is the blind spot monitoring system and much more. The Camaro on the other hand features an 8-inch infotainment system that is not upgradable like the one on the 4-Series. The 2021 Camaro also features smartphone integration although to enjoy the best features (such as wireless connectivity), one has to upgrade to higher trims.


The BMW 4-Series is powered by a 2-liter turbocharged engine that gives the 2021 4-Series plenty of power when you put the gas pedal down. However, if you are looking for a composed ride, the 4-Series delivers that as well without any fuss. The ride quality is superb and the suspension is excellent as keeping surface imperfections away from the cabin. The 2021 Camaro, on the other hand, comes with a 2-liter turbocharged engine although you can choose bigger engines including a V8 variant. All Camaro variants deliver an outstanding driving experience, the only thing perhaps that this sports sedan does very well.

The Bottom Line

While these two sedans have performance in their DNA, few Americans ever buy a car for just one function. BMW has made the 2021 4-series as sporty as the Camaro but they did so without compromising any other functionality. The 2021 Camaro on the other hand delivers a thrilling ride but is mostly impractical for any other use. For this reason, the 2021 4-Series easily wins this comparison.
