Used Car: 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Review
Auto writers reported that the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette has a powerful engine, nimble handling and a spacious interior filled with high-tech tools.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette is powered by a V8 engine that reviewers said is incredibly powerful. A few critics mentioned it feels a little less refined than engines in rival sports cars because it vibrates at idle. The Corvette comes standard with a seven-speed manual transmission with rev matching, and a six-speed automatic transmission is available. Test drivers found the manual transmission simple to use, and they applauded the rev-matching feature, which automatically revs the engine during gear changes for smoother downshifts. According to the EPA, the 2014 Corvette earns 17/29 mpg city/highway, which is typical for the class. Auto writers noted the Corvette's athletic handling, accurate steering and strong brakes make it engaging to drive. They also said it has a comfortable, composed ride over longer trips.
Reviewers wrote that the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette has a stylish cabin with upscale materials. They said the seats are large and comfortable, but that taller occupants may find too-little legroom. Rearward visibility is disappointing, according to critics, but cargo space is excellent for the class. Auto writers praised the Corvette's uncomplicated control layout, and they liked that the gauge cluster is customizable and can display a variety of vehicle information. Standard features include keyless entry, push-button start, a nine-speaker Bose stereo system, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, USB ports and Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system with an 8-inch touch-screen display. A 10-speaker Bose stereo system, navigation, a head-up display and remote start are available.
