Though the 2013 Chevrolet Corvette lacks some of the highest-tech offerings found in competitive luxury sports cars, it acquits itself well with standard equipment and offers enough upgrade and optional equipment to suit most buyers.
Spanning more than $60,000 between the base Corvette and the ZR1, the Corvette range varies widely, but all include a six-month OnStar telematics subscription; an MP3/CD stereo; satellite radio; dual-zone automatic climate control; keyless entry; push-button start; leather seats; steering wheel audio controls; a six-way power driver's seat; and auxiliary audio input.
Optional extras include a heads-up instrument display that projects information onto a virtual display above the hood; Bluetooth; heated seats; a leather interior package; power passenger seat; and an array of interior and exterior appearance options. Navigation is also available, but it's a DVD-based system and offers a small, low-resolution display that make it only marginally useful.
The head-up display is standard equipment on ZR1, Z06, and 427 Convertible models, and continues to be a somewhat unique feature in the segment, despite having been available on Corvettes for years now.
