Chevrolet redesigned the Corvette for 2014, keeping much of what was loved about the quintessential American sports car and largely doing away with what wasn’t. The Corvette’s 6.2-liter V8 delivers easy-to-use power, and its top-notch handling makes it a blast to drive on track and on highway.
Chevrolet heavily upgraded the interior of the Corvette, raising it closer to the levels of rivals like the Porsche 911 and the BMW M4. The mechanical bits have also received attention, notably a new seven-speed manual transmission and a tweaked V8 engine which now produces 455 horsepower. Starting with the 2014 redesign, the Corvette now has a more rigid body structure made from aluminum, aiding its handling. Altogether, the Corvette is better equipped for its core mission: taking on competitors of richer pedigree with ease.
Driving: The stiffer frame and revised suspension elevate the Corvette's handling and steering, making the C7 a delight to whip around corners. The V8 makes marvelous noises, and the power ensures it's terrific in a straight line, too. While the manual shifts easily, the automatic is not much of an improvement on the previous generation.
Comfort: The interior of the Corvette is definitely more driver-oriented than in years past, with a center screen directed towards the driver that promotes a cockpit-vibe. High quality materials adorn the interior, but the new seats are the stars of the show; they're far more rigid and supportive than in previous years.
Utility: The 15 cubic feet of storage you get in the coupe is generous by sports car standards. That's more than enough for a run to the grocery store or the golf course. You'll lose 5 cubic feet if you opt for the convertible.
Technology: While the cockpit is driver oriented, the new touchscreen is a hassle to use and isn't very responsive. There's some smartphone integration built into the screen, but this model year predates Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, so it can be a chore to use.
