Editor's Overview

With supercar styling and as much as 650 horsepower, the 2018 Chevrolet Corvette continues its legacy as America’s most popular and most powerful front-engine, 2-seat sports car. Available as a coupe or convertible, the new Corvette packs big V8 power, rear-wheel drive and unexpected refinement as it competes on the world’s stage and racetracks against Porsches, Jaguars and Aston Martins.

The car is very sleek and the color of the car's body is red.

I like the power that comes from engine. The seats are nice and are made out of fine black leather. I don't like the gas mileage because it uses a lot of gas. I don't have any major complaints about the car.

- Charlie K

The one most important thing is that it is reliable and dependable.

It is extremely reliable and it gets very good mileage. Gas is fortunately not a very expensive item to purchase when it comes to using a corvette. In all I can easily depend on the corvette if I needed to.

- Austin T

It's a fun car. It catches a lot of attention. Don't get one if you can't afford it's upkeep.

Always have loved Corvettes. This is my second one. Wish it had T tops. The top comes off, but one person can't do it alone. Wish it had better gas mileage. Other than that, it is great.

- Cindy H
