2021 Chevrolet Corvette: Edmunds Top Rated Sports Car | Edmunds Top Rated Awards 2021
The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette wins the title of Top Rated Sports Car in the Edmunds Top Rated Awards for 2021. Last year, the Corvette won this award due in large part to the new mid-engine layout, which tremendously enhanced the sports car's performance. Not much has changed from last year's model, but the 2021 Corvette is still outpacing the competition, and at a fraction of the price. It boasts impressive power and acceleration on the open road, yet it's able to handle city traffic and daily errands. The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette is the best sports car on the road today and our experts' pick for Edmunds Top Rated Sports Car for 2021.

2021 Chevrolet Corvette

The rare moonshot that is even better than expected
December 16th, 2020

The impact and significance of the newest Corvette are just as striking for 2021 as when it made its public debut back in 2019. This latest model, known as the C8 because it marks the model's eighth generation, is a giant departure from past models. Its angular styling turns heads as easily as a Ferrari, and listening to its thundering mid-mounted V8 — yes, the engine is behind you now — will get your pulse up like you just downed eight shots of espresso.

"The 2021 Chevrolet Corvette is a livable sports car you can use as a daily driver during the week and a racetrack all-star on the weekend."

The Corvette's handling has never been better. The new powertrain layout enhances every part of the driving experience. Low and sleek, the Corvette grips tenaciously around turns and gives you plenty of road feel and confidence through its squared-off steering wheel.

Chevy didn't overlook comfort and quality either. The solidly constructed and finished interior has a distinct fighter-jet cockpit vibe. There's even a respectable amount of storage space thanks to the front and rear trunks. This is a sports car equally at ease at being a daily driver or a track-day all-star.

Then there's the price, which starts right around $60,000 — roughly $40K less than the other top contender for this crown, the Porsche 911. Both boast impressive performance and honed pedigrees, but the Corvette needs no excuses to secure the Edmunds Top Rated crown for the second straight year.
