#Chevrolet - 2016 Corvette Review

2016 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
          (6.2L V8 7-speed Manual)         

      

With its epic performance, advanced features and easy-to-drive nature, the 2016 Chevrolet Corvette just might be the world's best sports-car bargain.

*** Pros

Awesome V8 power; racetrack-ready braking; exceptional handling in Z51 or Z06 trim; comfortable highway cruiser; high-tech and well-built interior; coupe's roomy cargo area; remarkable value.


*** Cons

Touchscreen is occasionally unresponsive to inputs and prone to glitches; automatic transmission's relatively slow reaction to manual-shifting inputs.






The Corvette boasts supercar-grade performance, cutting-edge features and a sleek, sumptuous cabin that's finally up to snuff. You can get it as a removable-roof coupe or a soft-top convertible, with a proper seven-speed manual offered alongside the aforementioned automatic in every model. Unlike its predecessors, this 'Vette has virtually no weaknesses. Calling it a world-class bargain is no longer faint praise; it's genuinely hard to believe that you can get this much car for what Chevy's charging.
In terms of rivals, the Corvette competes well against practically every high-end sports car on the planet.For some enthusiasts, the Porsche 911's magical car-driver connection can't be matched, but the fact is that Porsche charges a lot more for less speed. You'll spend less for the razor-sharp Porsche Cayman and Boxster siblings, but their power deficit is even more pronounced. The BMW M4 might strike your fancy with its practical four-seat interior and impressive performance numbers, but its styling is relatively plain, and its inline-6 engine lacks the visceral clout of a 'Vette V8. Higher up the food chain, the Dodge Viper and Nissan GT-R, as amazing as they are, can't touch the Chevy's impressive refinement and feature set. We could go on, but you get the point. The car snobs of Los Angeles got this one exactly right -- sports cars don't get much cooler than the 2016 Chevrolet Corvette.
