The 2010 Chevrolet Corvette lineup boasts a generous features list, both standard and optional, which makes the value argument of the iconic sports car even harder to beat.
The standard features list on the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette lineup is a long one, and according to Cars.com, it includes "a CD player with MP3 capability …... XM Satellite Radio," and "an audio input jack." Kelley Blue Book remarks that the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette boasts "an interior filled with more creature comforts than some luxury cars" and notes that some of the other standard features are "xenon headlamps" and a "Driver Information Center," along with "keyless access with push-button starter, leather seats, [and] six-way power driver’s seat." For those who prefer to keep two hands on the wheel, Motor Trend reports that "steering-wheel audio controls are standard across the board." The base 2010 Chevrolet Corvette comes with just about every one of the standard features on the higher-end models, but ConsumerGuide does note that 2010 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and Z06 variants offer a standard "head-up instrument display."
The Chevrolet Corvette has made a name for itself as the best-value sports car in America, but for those who can afford to stretch the budget, Chevrolet offers a wide range of options packages. ConsumerGuide reviewers report that the base vehicle offers 2LT, 3LT, and 4LT "Preferred Equipment Group" options, while the Z06 is available with 2LZ and 3LZ options, and the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 gets a 3ZR package. Those packages include a whole host of interior upgrades; Edmunds says that "the 2LT Package adds Bluetooth and upgraded leather seating," along with "a power-operated top" for the convertible. Moving up to the 3LT package brings "a head-up display, a power telescoping steering column with manual tilting, [and] heated front seats," while the Chevrolet Corvette "4LT is very similar to the 3LT but includes an exclusive two-tone leather trim," according to Edmunds. The options packages on the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 are quite similar to those found on the base model. For the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Jalopnik comments that the 3ZR "upgraded interior package" does a good job "in moving the interior from cheap and nasty into luxurious bass boat territory."
If picking options seems more like a chore to you than a necessity, TheCarConnection.com discovers that the 2010 Chevrolet Corvette has a number of stand-alone options that should excite most. Kelley Blue Book says the most noteworthy of these options are a "transparent roof panel and polished alloy wheels," and "Turn-by-Turn and DVD navigation."
The 2010 Chevrolet Corvette offers some of the best bang for your buck, but when traffic builds, it also provides the latest in high-tech features to play with.
