2021 Chevrolet Corvette MODEL OVERVIEW

Pros

  • Surprisingly good ride control
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay / Android Auto
  • Great performance and daily-drivable
  • Unchanged starting price from 2020 model

Cons

  • Polarizing styling
  • Understeers at the limit

Now entering its second year, the first-ever mid-engine production-spec Corvette remains just as incredible of a car as it was in 2020. The 2021 C8 Corvette doesn't see many changes, which works for us—the Corvette was our 2020 Car of the Year.

What's New:

  • Magnetic Selective Ride Control is now available outside of the Z51 model
  • Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard
  • Blue, orange, red, and yellow dual full-length racing stripes are now available
  • New exterior colors: Red Mist Metallic Tintcoat and Silver Flare Metallic
  • Buckle to Drive is a standard feature that prevents the driver from shifting out of Park if the driver's seat belt isn't buckled for up to 20 seconds
