$55,900 | USN Overall Score: 9.0/10 | USN Performance Score: 9.4/10

Chevy offers a seven-speed manual transmission in every trim of the 2019 Corvette, from the 455-horsepower V8 Stingray to the 755-horsepower supercharged V8 2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. With a starting price of $55,900, the Stingray is considered a bargain for its stellar performance. 

In our ranking of luxury sports cars, the Kentucky-built Corvette holds a top spot. The athletic 2019 Corvette offers more than just great powertrain performance; it also provides world-class handling and a two-seat cabin that’s vastly improved from earlier generations of the sports car. Corvette buyers can pick up their cars at the National Corvette Museum, which is adjacent to the factory where the car is built. 

The Corvette’s seven-speed manual transmission features rev-matching, which seamlessly blips the throttle to ensure your engine speed is precisely synchronized to the rest of the driveline as you downshift. An eight-speed automatic is also available, and is, unfortunately, the most popular transmission among Corvette buyers. 

Chevrolet has announced the Corvette will move from its traditional front-engine design to a mid-engine setup for 2020.
