The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.3
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 BMW i8 is a moment in time for efficient performance and a relative rarity. It’s nice to drive, but very expensive. The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette already has the acceleration figures, and the new mid-engine layout may lead to a more engaging driving experience if not faster track times.
