Benefits of Driving a 2012 Chevrolet Corvette Coupe

The Corvette comes with no less than 430 horsepower, even in base trim. And while the Corvette will never be mistaken for an economy car, it does get a surprising 26 mpg on the highway when equipped with the 6-speed manual transmission. The Corvette's true value comes in its race-tuned engine and handling, its sexy curves, and in its grins per mile. All this comes at an entry price of just under $50,000--a terrific performance bargain.

What's new for 2012?

The 2012 Corvette is mostly the same as 2011's model, but a few optional items changed. A series of colored brake rotors is now offered. A new ZR1-style spoiler is available on non-ZR1 Corvettes. The 2LT and 3LT packages now include navigation and Bose audio as well as a heads-up display.

Model Strengths

  • Classic American sports car
  • excellent performance even in base trim
  • world-class supercar value

Model Review

With the Grand Sport and the new Z06 and the ultra high-performance ZR1, there are plenty of Corvettes to choose from. The base coupe and convertible have a 6.2-liter, 430-hp V8 engine, known as the LS3, and a standard 6-speed manual transmission. A 6-speed paddle-shift automatic is optional. The paddle shifter includes a 'push and hold' function to make it easier to transition back to automatic after you've had your fun through the chicane.
