2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray: Comfortable on a Road Trip
January 27, 2014
If you want to test the comfort of a car, road trip it.
I just spent four days driving our long-term 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray 2,500 miles from Santa Monica to downtown Detroit. My longest day behind the wheel covered about 800 miles.
And now I can tell you that the new seventh-generation of Chevy's two-seat sports car is extremely comfortable. I'm 5' 11" about 180 lbs. and my body was very happy in the Corvette, even though tanks of fuel would stretch about 450 miles.
And it's not just the car's heated seat and seating position that made it so. This Corvette rides wonderfully in Touring mode and its cabin is luxury-sedan quiet.
After a long day behind the wheel I never felt broken in any way. I arrived in Detroit feeling good. No need for a chiropractor or a masseuse or a handful of Advil.
So while some Corvettes of the past have offered the comfort of a horse and buggy, the new Stingray is just the opposite. It can be driven to work or through three states without beating you up.
