Product Overview

The 8th generation Chevrolet Corvette is a sports car by General Motors. It is the first mid-engined Corvette since the model's introduction in 1953.
Powered by a 6.2L LT2 V8 engine, it is available either as a targa top or a hardtop convertible. The only transmission for the C8 Corvette is an 8-speed dual-clutch transaxle, making it the first Corvette not to have a manual transmission since 1955.

Reviewers from autocar have found:
GM's decision to stick with the pushrod V8 for the entry-level car is vindicated within a couple of minutes. The steering wheel is probably the squarest fitted to any car since the Austin Allegro and the long dashboard and shallow windscreen angle throw up lots of distracting reflections. Total luggage space is 356 litres, less than a Cayman but still entirely respectable for a car in this segment.
  • Powerful V8
  • Punchy acceleration
  • Impressive ride quality
  • Pricier than the C7
  • Lack of practicality

Reviewers from autoexpress have found:
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.
  • Gorgeous looks
  • Impressive performance
  • Comfortable to drive
  • No manual transmission
  • Lack of vision out back

Reviewers from carmagazine have found:
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.
  • Gorgeous looks
  • Powerful V8
  • Lots of fun to drive
  • No manual gearbox
  • Pricier than rivals
