Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

As we mentioned in the introduction, the entry-level Chevrolet Corvette undercuts both the BMW M4 Competition and Porsche Cayman GT4, which is all the more remarkable when you consider how well equipped it is in its standard ‘2LT’ configuration. 

Not only does the 2LT benefit from ‘go-faster’ goodies such as the Z51 Performance Package, but it also gets a heated steering wheel, electrically adjustable seats, a head-up display, a performance data recorder, a 14-speaker Bose stereo, a digital rearview camera and keyless entry and start.

Overview

We’ve waited a long time for the Chevrolet Corvette to reach our shores, but we’re glad GM waited until now. With a plush interior, impressive ride quality (on the optional MagneRide dampers), effortless performance and a competitive list price, the Corvette, now in its eighth generation, finally feels like it can take on the best from Europe.

  • Available in right hand drive
  • Loads of kit as standard
  • Competitive price
  • Basic infotainment system
  • Visibility could be better
  • Lower seating position would be better
