2020 Corvette Stingray Review ― Test Drive of the New Corvette C8

  • เผยแพร่เมื่อ 22 พ.ย. 2019
  • We finally get our hands on the new mid-engine 2020 Corvette Stingray. In this video review of the Corvette C8, Kurt Niebuhr walks us through the interior, the results from our test track and what it's like to drive.
    With a mid-engine design and low price, the 2020 Corvette C8 promises a lot. Fortunately, it delivers. The C8 is enormous fun to drive on mountain roads, quick on our test track and comfortable on the daily commute. This Corvette is a true working-class sports car that makes us question the value of costlier competition.
    For 2020, the Corvette has undergone the most radical redesign in its 67-year history. Believing that they had squeezed every ounce of performance they could from the Corvette's classic front-engine and rear-drive layout, Chevrolet's engineers decided a new mid-engine layout was the way to go for its inherent advantages in weight distribution. Risky? Yes. But the result is hugely impressive.
    It's rare to see a car, let alone an institution like the Corvette, so radically transformed. But Chevrolet has taken its performance icon and improved it in nearly every way. It's bonkers fast, handles beautifully, and still manages traffic and daily errands. The styling may be controversial, but its price and performance certainly are not.
    In terms of performance, the Corvette C8 equals or outshines cars costing two to three times as much. The new 6.2-liter V8 and dual-clutch automatic transmission combo is formidable on the track but offers plenty of oomph and smooth operation in nearly any condition. The new Corvette also imparts more information about its handling balance and grip, thereby giving its driver more confidence in taking the car up to its handling limits.
    As with past Corvettes, the C8 is practical for both daily driving and long trips. Although the total cargo area isn't as usable as before, it's still large enough to fit a few pieces of luggage. There's still space for the coupe's removable targa roof panel top in the rear, and the lack of an engine up front means there's a small frunk in the nose. The new interior has a sharp, driver-focused design and fine materials throughout. A Corvette convertible is on its way, too.
    It's easy to be impressed by the new Corvette C8. Its performance rivals that of more expensive sports cars, yet the Corvette is still everyday comfortable and practical. But it's the performance that amazes the most with easily explorable yet considerable limits. The transformation has been nothing short of shocking.

    I can't wait to see a C8 Z06 or ZR1 go heads up with the Ford GT - I am assuming it'll be more in the likes of the ZR1 but if they put out a Z06 with 700HP, I think it can ride with the GT!

      @Jimmy Miotke see if only other people would see that an stop trying to class this car as other cars class and also still trying to be what it's not but that's my opinion. Just like you have your opinion you have a good day.

    • Jimmy Miotke

      @I Am Armando you clearly dont know what you are talking about. The corvette has been destined to be a mid engined exotic fighter ever since the 60's. Zora Arkus-Duntov the performance chief designer of the Corvette wanted the 'vette to be mid engined starting with the c2. It was always meant to be this, but gm thought otherwise. So this car isn't pretending to be something it's not. It's fulfilling what it was always meant to be. Bye now.

    This corvette has a really good dual clutch transmission, that’s better then a manual. So your not loosing your performance car. Especially if you already know the cars an aggressive performer, not having manual doesn’t make the car bad. Calling the transmission an 8 speed automatic is a huge understatement. And why would you even mention the small seat if you got the car with small seats???

    The C8 Corvette has an option missing for it’s advanced super car design. They need stone guards for the dual radiators and condensers. If live near a rock the halls crushed rock for construct and inter-structure course gravel in the road is going to devour one or both of those heat exchangers and GM is not going to buy me a new one under warranty if the can help. Not a cheap part!

    The interior on the Stingray C8 is unique and looks like a Super Car, Starting at 60k. The FORD GT is a Race Car/ Super Car and the interior looks like Henry Ford designed it himself, sort of Model T like, but Jay Leno loves his vin 12. Even at 500k, and if won Le Mons

    Tons nicer materials in and out, esp. the interior...and a new special digital cockpit, and a strange but cool wall with havac gauges. I am impressed that Chevy finally took a chance and made an all-new mid engine supercar, that is fast and refined, making Motor Trends COTY, which surprised me...but makes sense. I do see the NSX as the most comparable in looks. But not a super hybrid V6 turbo, which I would buy an Acura before any Chevy, but I'm Asian car biased.
