The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Chevrolet Corvette's exceptional performance, style, comfort, and features, as well as its choice of high-power engines and body styles, adds up to an impressive sports car and grand tourer in one—and a car that won't break the bank. With four seats, sub-three-second 0 to 60 mph times, an advanced all-wheel-drive system, and a reasonable sticker price, the 2016 Nissan GT-R is in a class by itself.
