Pros

  • The coupe's generous cargo space

Cons

Which Corvette does Edmunds recommend?

First off: It's a Corvette. That means: a) you can't go wrong, and b) there's likely a version that matches your exact wants and needs. But in our opinion, the Grand Sport is the ideal choice. It provides the upgraded handling and visual flair of the Z06 but without the Z06's substantial cost increase. Sure, the Z06 is faster, but the Grand Sport's 460 hp is plenty, trust us.

Edmunds' Expert Review

Overall rating

4 / 5

The Chevrolet Corvette has been a performance icon in the United States for more than six decades now, and this 2018 version is no different. The base Stingray's powerful 6.2-liter V8 engine (455 horsepower, 460 pound-feet of torque) sits up front and drives a set of gigantic Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.

If the regular Corvette Stingray is too tame, the Corvette Grand Sport raises track credibility up to near maximum levels thanks to made-for-the-track aerodynamics and mechanical modifications. Then there's the supercharged Z06. With its 650 hp, it'll lay down lap times that even European exotics costing four or five times more will have trouble matching.

Naturally, the Corvette is a sports car, replete with the usual foibles, such as two-person seating and a low ride height that makes it hard to get in and out. But you'll likely be surprised to find that the Corvette's track-ready performance doesn't come paired with a harsh ride. Across its model lineup, the Corvette continues to be the rare alpha performance car that's comfortable for normal driving, too.

Taking just one test drive in a 2018 Corvette may have you forgetting about civility and embracing what so many sports car aficionados already know: This is American performance at its best.

Trim levels & features

The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette is a two-seat sports car that is available in both coupe and convertible body types. The coupe features a removable roof panel that stows in the trunk, while the convertible has a power-operated soft top. The Stingray, Z51 and Grand Sport are split into 1LT, 2LT and 3LT subtrims; the Z06 comes in 1LZ, 2LZ and 3LZ subtrims.

Chevy fits the Stingray, Z51 and Grand Sport with a 6.2-liter V8 (455 hp, 460 lb-ft). A performance exhaust that increases output to 460 hp is available on the Stingray and included on the Z51 and Grand Sport models. A seven-speed manual transmission with automatic rev-matched downshifts is standard, while an eight-speed automatic is optional.

Standard features for the Stingray 1LT include 18-inch front and 19-inch rear wheels with summer tires, Brembo brakes, xenon headlights, LED running lights, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats and a power-adjustable steering wheel.

You also get OnStar (with a 4G LTE data connection and Wi-Fi hotspot capability), Bluetooth, a driver information display, an 8-inch central touchscreen with Chevy's MyLink infotainment interface, a rearview camera, two USB ports, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a nine-speaker Bose sound system with satellite radio.

All Stingray 2LT models come with front-view parking cameras, auto-dimming driver side and rearview mirrors, a head-up display, a cargo shade (coupe only), upgraded interior trim, heated and ventilated seats with additional power adjustments, driver-seat memory settings and a 10-speaker sound system.

The Stingray 3LT models add premium leather upholstery with extended surface coverage, simulated-suede upper interior trim and a navigation system that includes the Corvette's unique performance data recorder.

The Stingray Z51 upgrades the Vette's performance potential with 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels, larger front brakes, slotted brake rotors, sportier suspension tuning, revised transmission gear ratios for snappier responses (manual only), an electronic limited-slip differential, a differential cooler, dry-sump oiling for the V8 engine and a dual-mode performance exhaust.

The Grand Sport largely mirrors the Stingray Z51 in terms of feature content, but it adds a slew of performance features taken from the Z06, including an upgraded cooling system, wider fenders and tires, adaptive dampers, upgraded suspension components and bigger brakes.
Sport seats are optional on all Corvettes.

The Z06 1LZ starts with the Stingray Z51 1LT's standard equipment and adds a supercharged V8 (650 hp, 650 lb-ft), a Z06-specific sport-tuned suspension with adaptive dampers, larger brakes, wider tires, a carbon-fiber hood, a more aggressive aero package (including wider front and rear fenders, expanded cooling vents, and a unique front grille and rear fascia) and the head-up display. The Z06 2LZ gets the 2LT's upgrades, while the Z06 3LZ gets the 3LT's upgrades.

For the Grand Sport and Z06, Chevy offers a Z07 performance package. It adds carbon-ceramic brakes, an even more aggressively tuned suspension, bigger and stickier tires, and extra aerodynamic body pieces. For all Corvettes, various interior and exterior styling and trim upgrades are also available.

Trim tested

Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions that are fundamentally similar. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport Convertible (6.2L V8 | 7-speed manual | RWD).

Driving

5
With the Grand Sport package, the Corvette is an almost telepathic performer. The engine and brakes are very strong and easy to modulate, and the manual transmission operates smoothly. Steering feel is lacking at the limit, but those limits are far beyond what most roads allow.

Acceleration

5
The 455-hp 6.2-liter V8 is breathtaking, a wave of force. The Corvette has power everywhere in the rev range and is great fun at partial or full throttle. When you put your foot down, the car leaps for the horizon. It comes with more powerful engines, but this one is more than enough.

Braking

5
The Grand Sport brakes are strong and consistent. In our tests, the Corvette came to a stop from 60 mph in just 95 feet, which is impressive. Even better, the pedal feels very natural, and it's easy to modulate in normal driving.

Steering

3.5
The steering is nicely weighted and very precise. It's easy to place the car right where you want it. That said, there's almost no road feel from the steering wheel. The car's incredible grip makes that less of an issue, but it's difficult to know when you're approaching its limits.

Handling

4.5
The Corvette just sticks to the ground, and with coupelike rigidity it isn't bothered by midcorner corrections or bumps. It changes directions unbelievably quickly, with negligible body roll and drama. Unfortunately, it's a challenge to recover the back end if you push past the car's limits.

Drivability

5
The manual transmission is easy to shift. Clutch uptake is consistent and predictable, and the throttle is linear, so it's easy to make smooth starts. The rev-matching downshift feature works well. But upshifting from fourth to fifth gear can be tricky as you can grab seventh by accident.

Comfort

4
There's no getting around the fact that this is a convertible sports car, but it requires surprisingly little compromise on comfort. Magnetic Ride Control provides good ride quality, and the seats are comfortable for all but the tallest drivers. Ultimately, the biggest problem is tire noise.

Seat comfort

4
The seats have plenty of adjustability and good bolstering. They strike a nice balance between cushioning and support, being slightly softer than some sports car seats. They may be a little tight and sit a little high for drivers 6 feet tall or taller.

Ride comfort

4.5
Magnetic Ride Control provides a buttoned-down ride without ever feeling crashy or harsh, and we wouldn't buy a Corvette without it. The ride is surprisingly forgiving for a car with big wheels and run-flat tires, and is communicative without being too jarring.

Noise & vibration

3
Wind noise isn't really a problem with the top up, and it's only a problem over 65 mph with the top down. But the Corvette's aggressive tires make a lot of noise on anything other than the smoothest tarmac, and they're pretty audible in the cabin. The engine is only loud when you want it to be.

Climate control

4.5
The climate control system has to work to keep up when it's hot out, but it always does the job and is easy to use. Heated and cooled seats are nice to have, especially when the top is down. Passengers will appreciate having a dedicated air and seat temperature control by their door.

Interior

3.5
For a relatively small two-seater convertible with a large bulkhead right behind the seats, the Corvette surprisingly doesn't feel cramped. The control layout is thoughtful, and driving position is quite adjustable. But visibility and entering and exiting are problematic.

Ease of use

4.5
Controls are located so the driver can access them easily and are clearly marked. Driving modes and aids such as traction control can be adjusted without using the touchscreen. The rev-matching paddles on the steering wheel are easy to accidentally hit in spirited driving, which can be a nuisance.

Getting in/getting out

2
Low-slung sports cars have never been easy to climb into and out of, but with our tester's optional side rocker extensions it's even harder. Unless you're parking with the top down or you're very fit, it's a bit of work, and a little embarrassing.

Driving position

4.5
The seats and steering wheel offer plenty of adjustability, so most drivers will be able to find a good position. Tall drivers may feel the seat is too high even in the lowest setting. The important controls are within reach and easy to find, and the gauges and head-up display are very visible.

Roominess

3.5
The cabin has sufficient headroom for taller drivers and is wide enough that it doesn't feel cramped. Two people can share the car without problems. A backward glance reveals the convertible's bulkhead and makes the space feel smaller. Putting the top down sets everything right.

Visibility

3
With the top up, the high deck and small rear window contribute to huge blind spots and poor rear visibility. It may be difficult to see the headlights of cars behind, and tall drivers may have to lean forward to see stoplights. Putting the top down solves many issues and improves rear visibility.

Quality

4
The interior materials look and feel appropriate for the price, although there were a few small problems with fitment and a few rattles from the convertible top assembly. Overall, it's a high-rent-feeling car, even if some body lines aren't as precise as competitors'.

Utility

2.5
Convertible buyers won't be expecting much in the way of utility, which is good because the Corvette doesn't offer it. The small trunk and limited interior storage mean you won't be using it for trips to Costco.

Small-item storage

3
The shallow center bin has enough space for a phone and wallet, the door pockets are too small for a water bottle, and the cupholders are on the small side, too. The real trick is the hidden storage behind the touchscreen, which slides down. It's sufficient, if not overwhelming.

Cargo space

2.5
The convertible sacrifices the coupe's tremendous liftback space, leaving a small, flat rectangular opening in the rear deck. When down, the top consumes about half of the 10-cubic-foot trunk. What's left is enough for a weekend getaway if you pack light, or you can leave the top up.

Technology

4
All of Chevrolet's connectivity tech is available, from smartphone integration to OnStar and even a Wi-Fi hotspot. The MyLink system is fast and easy to use. Blind-spot monitoring would be welcome considering the limited visibility.

Audio & navigation

4
Bose systems can be disappointing, but this implementation provides quite good sound quality. Its performance with the top down is impressive, providing clear sound without getting overwhelmed. Navigation is easy enough to use, but if your view is zoomed out, you can lose sight of smaller roads.

Smartphone integration

5
The center console has two USB ports and a 12-volt outlet, and there's a USB port in the hidden compartment behind the infotainment screen. There's also Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and Wi-Fi with an optional 4G connection. You can't ask for much more in a car like this.

Driver aids

2.5
Parking cameras in front and rear are a nice touch, but image quality isn't very good. There's no blind-spot monitoring or rear cross-traffic alert, which would be nice with the compromised visibility. There's also no forward collision alert. Driving this car is 100 percent the driver's job.

Voice control

3
Voice control prompts are helpfully displayed on the touchscreen, but functionality isn't as extensive as in some competitors and phrasing needs to be precise. Entering destinations is easiest if you have an address. Using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto voice control is certainly preferable.

Cool car with bells and whistles
Ben Vi, 07/12/2018
I love this car. Better handling than competition. Light on wallet. Will buy again in future. This is only car worthy to upgrade.
Its everything they say it is !
Justin Fontaine, 08/20/2018
This is a world class sports car from GM. Finally a Corvette that I wanted to own. Ever since I saw the C7 on the road a few years ago I was struck by the incredible exterior styling. It is a strikingly beautiful car. The only thing I wondered was could it deliver on performance and engineering to compete with Porsche,Audi and the rest? The answer is YES IT CAN! Say what you will about GM using old push-rod technology in the engine bay but this motor just rocks. Power comes on fast and is always there when you want it and there is plenty off it. The 7 speed manual is very good and as smooth as my old Miata. Short throws and positive engagement every shift. The car handles very well. I did not want the tack goodies that the Z51 or Grand Sport provide. I got the Magnetic ride as an option to help button the car down on spirited rides and makes things a bit plusher when cruising through town. This is a do it all sports car. Yes it has a stigma of being an old guys retirement car but this C7 has changed that perception. It is a real world sports car with Super car type performance for a very reasonable price.

2018 Chevrolet Corvette video

KURT NIEBUHR: Pop quiz-- what has 650 horsepower, 650 foot pounds of torque, a supercharged 6.2 liter V8 engine, is rear wheel drive, and has a seven speed manual transmission? [ENGINE REVVING] That's what. [MUSIC PLAYING] Let's talk about that motor for a second-- 6.2 liter V8 supercharged, 650 horsepower, 650 foot pounds of torque. I could talk about what it's got, but I'll let it talk for me. [ENGINE REVVING] Yeah, this is the best V8 you can buy right now. I don't care what Mercedes has to offer. I don't care what Aston Martin has. This V8 engine is just [KISSING NOISE]. [ENGINE REVVING] This is Z06 with the Z07 package. Actually, probably just the Z06 itself has a wonderful front end. It's quick, but not too quick. Changes direction. I wouldn't go so far as to say it's telepathic, but boy, it really does what you want right when you ask it to. [ENGINE REVVING] The front axle is very quick and has a lot of grip. It's almost too quick, but it's-- you get used to how fast the front end is. It can take you by surprise, but the rear end follows you all the time. Now, true, I'm not really at a very high limit at the moment, but I've got more than enough grip, more than enough traction, and I'm having more than enough fun. [ENGINE REVVING] The way you can guide the car through the turn, point it-- just really nice. I wouldn't go so far as to say the feel is like a Porsche or anything like that, but it is-- I don't really want for anything else. There's a reasonable amount of feedback. Not as much as I'd like, but still pretty good, and the car just-- the car wants it. In sport mode, this car is completely unfazed by rough canyon roads. It still puts a lot of power down. It still turns in well. It has a track mode, but I wouldn't even use it on a track. It's so rigid. Makes it hard to be smooth. But the sport mode-- perfect. Also, hats off GM. Carbon ceramic brakes-- fantastic carbon ceramic brakes. Must-have carbon ceramic brakes, and a revised suspension. Spring rates front and rear are up. Bushings and the sway bar have been changed out, and the magnetorheological, I think I got that right, shocks have been retuned for the springs for the mega performance. Special shout out to my coworkers for leaving me Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires that are balder than I am, but these tires still have a phenomenal amount of grip. But having bald tires on a car with about 3,600 miles on it brings up something that you should take into account if you select the option. The cost to replace these tires is a lot. It's not $1,000. It's not $2000. It's over that. It's a lot of money. These tires lasted probably-- they will last less than 4,000 miles, so if you drive your Z06 the way you're supposed to, and you do not lock it in a plastic bag and put it in your garage, you're going to go through a few sets of these tires every year. Just something to keep in mind. Your basic Z06 is going to run you about $80,000. That's not chump change, but it's a fantastic value for the amount of performance that you get. The Z07 package-- that is $75,000. That, in my opinion, is the only option package that you should buy when you buy a Z06. Now, the car that I'm currently driving is the Carbon 65 version, which adds bits of blue here and there. It has graphics on the fenders. Some of the interesting blue is all over the place. It adds carbon fiber aero bits on the outside. You can take those or leave those. That Carbon 65 package is an immense 15,000 bucks more than a regular Z06 and brings the total of this car to $112,000. Yeah, just buy the Z06, get the Z07 package, and Heaven awaits. [ENGINE REVVING] [MUSIC PLAYING]

2018 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon 65 Edition Test Drive

Edmunds Photo Editor Kurt Niebuhr swiped the key to the 650-horsepower Corvette Z06 Carbon 65 Edition and went for a quick blast through the hills. Does the limited-production run of 650 vehicles vindicate the $112K asking price? Do you really need special graphics or should the supercharged 6.2-liter engine do all the talking? How long will a set of tires really last? Can the photo editor even drive a car?

More about the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette

The 2018 Chevrolet Corvette is a singular thing. It and the Ohio-made Acura NSX are currently the only production two-seater performance machines being built in the United States. But no one thinks of the NSX as an American car, and no one thinks of the Corvette as anything but the epitome of American automotive culture.

The Corvette is available in a coupe or convertible soft-top body style. The Stingray is equipped with a 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 455 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Thanks to a dual-mode exhaust, the Grand Sport produces 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. Both Grand Sport and Stingray versions of the Corvette are available in three different trims. Stingray trims can also be equipped with a Z51 performance package that bridges that gap to the Grand Sport, while Grand Sport trims can be equipped with the Z07 package, that's also available on the Z06. The top-dog Corvette Z06 has a supercharged V8 good for 650 hp.

Driving enthusiasts will probably opt for the 1LT; it's the lightest trim of the group but still has enough capability to handle daily-driver duties. It comes with a Bose nine-speaker audio system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, rear parking camera, eight-way power seats, power-adjustable tilt-and-telescoping, flat-bottomed steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, and keyless entry and ignition.

The 2LT trim adds interior comfort features that are on par with many luxury cars. Heated and ventilated seats, driver-seat memory function, auto-dimming mirrors, 10-speaker Bose audio system,  head-up display, front parking camera, HID headlights, and color-matched interior console, instrument panel and door panels.

3LT adds significant interior refinement. Premium leather seating surfaces, navigation system, color-matched instrument panel and leather-wrapped interior pieces are all included. Available on other trims, the 3LT includes a navigation system. It also has a data recorder that records GPS track information and video from an HD camera feed into an onboard memory card for later replay.

True enthusiasts who want more out of their Stingray can add the Z51 performance package. It includes the Grand Sport's dual-mode exhaust and provides increased power and torque. This extensive package also includes an electronic limited-slip differential; differential and transmission cooling; additional engine cooling; larger slotted front brakes; stiffer shocks, dampers and roll bars; a downforce-generating aero package; shorter gear ratios for increased acceleration, and Michelin Pilot Super Sport summer tires. The Z51 package is available on all Stingray models.

Grand Sport owners looking for more track performance can equip their cars with the Z07 package. This includes a sport-tuned version of the Magnetic Ride Control suspension, carbon-ceramic brakes and Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup 2 high-performance tires.

Don't settle for just any sports car. Let Edmunds help find and buy the perfect 2018 Chevrolet Corvette for you.

Should I lease or buy a 2018 Chevrolet Corvette?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
