One of the few new things about this year's Corvette is it has parking camera in the front of the car for extra safety.

The 2016 Chevy Corvette is the ultimate American sports car and it always has been and always will be.
Powertrains and PerformanceWhen you talk performance Corvette always comes to the minds of automobile designers, reviewers and car enthusiasts. Why, because the Corvette has always been about performance (and style and speed and coolness). The Corvette is powered by a 6.2-liter V8 engine that puts out 455 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. Launch control mode is offered in both the eight-speed automatic transmission and the seven-speed manual transmission. Fuel consumption is not what you'd expect in a performance car like the Corvette. It gets 17 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with the manual transmission, and 16 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway with the automatic, which is pretty darn good. When you get the supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine it will throw out 650 horsepower and 650 pound-foot of torque. That, of course, will bring down the mpg – 15 mpg in the city and 22 on the highway, but it will also increase your sped and cool factor, if you don't mind that. Don't forget that with all that sped you also have some safety backups for peace of mind: antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, automatic crash notification, on-demand roadside assistance, remote door unlocking side-impact airbags, rear-view camera and OnStar.
Exterior & Interior FeaturesAnyone who has ever sat in a Corvette knows that it is built for comfort; there's not an uncomfortable inch in a Corvette. The 2016 Corvette design has incorporated a more spacious cabin, and wraparound door panels that make you think you're in a star fighter and the Force is with you. The whole cabin is simply more driver-friendly and the seats, for one thing, seem to be form-fitted for each and every driver and body shape. They are quite comfortable to say the least and the firmness and the snug feeling we get deserve five more stars on the ratings chart. This year's Corvette is also futuristic in the way you're able to change the settings of the transmission, throttle and stability control systems depending on which driving mode you choose to move forward in time and space with. The new Corvette is an amazing piece of engineering simply because of the way everything works. The touchscreen enables easy iPhone usage along with accessing other apps you might need. Storage space is surprising with its 15 cubic feet, while the convertibles give you ten cubic feet. The exterior of the new Corvette offers 18 to 20- inch wheels, depending on which model you select. If you get the convertible coupe you can stow the top in the trunk as your Corvette is traveling up to thirty miles an hour. How fun is that?
Safety FeaturesThe 2016 Corvette is one of the safest "Vettes" ever manufactured. The traction control system alone helps out in that respect. It keeps the car manageable even when you're close to the limit. This car has so much balance and steadiness built into it that it feels as if you're smoothly flying high above the clouds even when you're going to the supermarket down the street. Safety is just one of the things the Chevrolet engineers think of when they are designing the systems for the Corvette. This year's “Vette” has bigger brakes and more control than ever before. It's fun to drive, no doubt, but it's even more fun when you know that you are in a truly safe car.
