There's no better performance car value available today than the Chevy Corvette. It's a shining example of a budget supercar. No caveats for the interior or engine placement need be made. It's brilliant from every aspect.

You may not be able to get your hands on a 2022 Chevrolet Corvette for anywhere close to sticker price in today’s markup-heavy car economy, but taken for its amiable MSRP, the C8 Corvette is still the performance bargain of the century. There’s no other car at the Corvette’s price point that can match its performance and usability. The next closest all-round package that legitimately goes toe-to-toe with the Corvette is the Porsche 911. And to get one with similar performance capabilities and features, the starting price could easily be double the Corvette’s. Finding bad things to say about the C8 is difficult work. Critiquing the design is a subjective practice. And while there might be some legitimate gripes about the strange climate control array or lack of manual transmission, those gripes largely fall flat after you drive the car. It’s brilliant in just about every way imaginable, and Chevy finally gives you a respectable interior to complete the package. Our only wish is for a supercar-like engine to fit this car’s supercar-like character. The Chevy small block does the job with brutal effectiveness, but it’s the upcoming Z06 that may fully capture both our minds and souls. Interior & Technology  |  Passenger & Cargo Space  |  Performance & Fuel Economy What it's like to drive  |  Pricing & Features  |  Crash Ratings & Safety Features What's new for 2022? There are only small changes for 2022. The engine is updated with a new fuel injection system and calibration that allow it to produce fewer emissions and provide more stability at idle. Its cylinder deactivation system is also tweaked to function over a broader range of rpms. On the color front, you’ll be allowed to spec three new colors: Hypersonic Gray, Caffeine and Amplify Orange Tintcoat (it's a little brighter than the previous Sebring Orange pictured above). Chevy also added a new low-profile rear spoiler and front splitter to the list of options available on the non-Z51 cars. Lastly, an IMSA GTLM Championship Edition model is being made to celebrate the C8.R’s success in its inaugural racing season. It will be limited to 1,000 cars. What’s the Corvette interior and in-car technology like? This C8 Corvette’s interior is the best to ever grace the nameplate. Panel gaps are super tight; edges are crisp, but most of all, it’s a unique design that suits the car. The Corvette looks and drives like a supercar – why not have an interior that's just as outlandish? Everything wraps around the driver, including the infotainment screen and cascade of buttons mounted on the prominent partition. Add in their relatively high position and the vibrant all-digital instrument panel, and everything is easy to see and reach; at least for the driver. Being the passenger can feel like you're in a sidecar as you can barely see the controls let alone reach them. That goes for the otherwise user-friendly, feature-packed infotainment system.   The steering wheel/square may be the interior's most striking piece … and the …
