Talking 19 Camaro Refresh vs 18 Camaro 3/4 Profile comparison

I think you know for obvious which side I am in terms of look , but I would like to know IN YOUR OPINION (This is the part that I love ) which one looks better and WHY.

... Here we go .

The not-19 one looks better. The bottom of the 18 front end ends in a splitter-like effect (even disregarding the splitter on the 18 below the colored fascia). It looks more like the 18 juts out aggressively, where the 19 is flatter.

It's not a fair comparison truly, The Orange Hot Wheels edition model will ALWAYS look better than a standard 18 or 19.

If I had to choose a 19, it would be the grey one to the right, doesn't make that hideous black bumper standout as much.

Edit: ugh I keep looking at this and I just cannot stand how Chevy ruined this car.

18s are better from the front but 19s are better from the rear

IMO

only thing i dislike is the black on the front of the 2019 SS models.the body colored ones look so much better,especially the orange crush,but the ugly black could be fixed with a wrap.

I think the 19s look fine, even though I like the 16 SS a bit more.



The refresh is nothing to trade a 16 in for imho, but if I wouldn't have my camaro I would still look forward to buy a 19.



The only part I dislike is the placement of the flowtie on the front of the 19 SS, but blacking out the chrome and going with more black accents on the car will make the 19 models look great to me. Here's a photoshop example of black accents on Riverside blue.

For a second I felt bad for 19 fanboys constantly getting their feelings hurt by the internet calling their future cars ugly ad nauseum (and implicitly telling people who like the 19 SS they have horrible taste), but this changed my opinion. You're bringing it on yourself at this point...

After spending 2 days checking out the refresh at Camaro Fest I am really liking the refresh if I was in the market for a new Camaro I would bypass the 18's and wait for the 19's.

The front end on the 16-18 looks like it belongs on the car. With the '19 refresh, the front end looks like whoever designed it tried too hard and ended up with something that doesn't flow with the rest of the car. Looking back on the 5th gen refresh, yes there were some changes but the front end basically looked the same, a little different sure, but nothing extreme. The '19 refresh front end is completely different looking, almost like it was designed for another car altogether and then just slapped onto the Camaro.



I wouldn't mind the front end so much if it were on a new car, say the GM answer to the Dodge Charger, then I wouldn't dislike it as bad, but as it sits on the Camaro, it just looks out of place. The rear end on the refresh doesn't match either, those big bubbly tail lights don't match anything else on the car, again it looks like it was designed for something other than a Camaro.

What can I say... I'm starting to Love the way the Hate comes, I need to loud sometimes and strikeback to someones that think that they have The absolute truth... To loud even moar

It doesn't bother me, it's all about Opinions and always going to be likers/dislikers, so if you are the type of person that loves to try to interact with each other about everything like me, you need to live with that

16-18 looks better and more aggressive, which sucks to me b/c I was hoping the refresh would be MORE aggressive looking. The 19+ looks softer, less aggressive and OF COURSE the Flowtie placement is just terrible, throws off the proportions of the ENTIRE front end of the car. 19+ wouldn't look near as bad moving the Flowtie to the upper grille.

This is what I see when looking at that Flowtie placement:
