Why you should drive with the Top Down: Convertible Myths Debunked

Camaro ConvertibleSpring is finally here in Kentucky after a long, long winter. What better way to enjoy the nice weather than to drive with the top-down? Some of you may not be convinced so we’ve compiled a short list of debunked convertible myths for your reading enjoyment.

  1. Convertible cars aren’t safe-Increased stability and handling alongside advanced safety features makes a convertible just as safe as a sedan. Plus, the 2013 Camaro convertible comes standard with a rear vision camera and park assist.
  2. Hard to Manage- The 2014 Corvette Stingray converts on the go. With the push of a button the convertible top can retract while the car is in motion.
  3. Not enough room-While most convertibles are also known to be coupes, the Camaro and Camaro SS convertibles have enough room for 4 people to enjoy the drive.
  4. Gas-guzzlers- High fuel economy prices have forced drivers to start thinking practical. However, the 2013 Camaro and Corvette convertibles achieve 28 and 26 MPG on the highway, respectively.
  5. Lack practicality- Anyone who says this clearly hasn’t driven with the top down on a beautiful day. It’s great for relationships or anyone who likes to clear their head with a nice drive.

Camaro Edges Out Mustang for 2nd Straight Year

2013 Chevrolet CamaroIt’s the battle of the muscle cars and the Camaro takes the title for the second year in a row. Chevrolet dealers sold more than 84,000 Camaros last year, more than 1,000 more than their rival, the Ford Mustang.

This year was a closer margin than last year where the Camaro blew away the Mustang in 2011 sales. Chevy sold more than 17,000 Camaros than Ford sold Mustangs in all of 2011.

It has always been a tight race between the Camaro and the Mustang but Chevy still proves their cars come out on top. The Camaro is a 2-door car available in with a hard top or as a convertible and has been a staple in the Chevy lineup for more than 50 years. The Camaro is in its 5th generation and is looking to be redesigned in 2015.

Expect the Camaro to retain the title for 2013 sales with the release of the new Chevy Camaro ZL1 that achieves an amazing 580 horsepower under a V8 engine. For more information on the Chevy Camaro, visit Hutch Chevrolet online at http://hutchchevrolet.com or in-store in Paintsville, KY.
