Reviewers from autocar have found the following***:
You’re sitting at much closer quarters with the car’s front wheels than ever a Corvette has allowed before. The one thing that Corvettes have never done well, until now, is steer. The new one, by the starkest of contrasts, steers in precise, instinctively responsive fashion and with really intuitive weight and pace.

Pros
  • Gorgeous V8 engine
  • Comfortable to drive
  • Impressive handling
Cons
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from autoexpress have found the following***:
The eighth-generation car is very much like every Corvette ever built, albeit one with its V8 bolted behind the occupants instead of in front. The engine churns with the same sort of power as its predecessor, despite the fact it redlines at a lowly 6,500 rpm. Chevrolet also had the wisdom to offer three different seat designs that will tailor to everyone from fast-food diners to wannabe race car drivers.

Pros
  • Gorgeous looks

The first UK cars will be specified in to two trim levels; 2LT and 3LT. You can then add numerous options to improve the dynamics – such Chevrolet's excellent Magnetic Ride adaptive suspension for £1,920 – or to enhance the styling and interior spec. All UK Corvettes also get the ‘Z51 Performance Package', which includes beefier-than-normal Brembo brakes, a limited-slip differential and a sports exhaust system.

Pros

Reviewers from carmagazine have found the following***:
The new double wishbone suspension system, complete with adaptive dampers on our coupe test model, is hugely impressive. In Tour, it soaks up so many imperfections on the road surface you have to remind yourself you're driving a two-seater sports car, not an executive saloon. While some may bemoan the lack of a manual gearbox, the new eight-speed dual-clutch auto is impressive.

Pros
  • Gorgeous looks
  • Powerful V8
  • Lots of fun to drive
Cons
  • No manual gearbox
  • Pricier than rivals
