2015 Chevrolet Corvette Overview

The 2015 Corvette is an excellent used luxury sports car. It pairs brawny V8 power, sharp handling, and a comfortable ride with a driver-centric cabin, supportive seats, and abundant cargo space.

Used 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Performance and Interior

The Corvette is a pleasure to drive – and very quick. The Corvette Stingray has a potent 6.2-liter V8 that makes 455 horsepower (460 horsepower with the available performance exhaust) and 460 pound-feet of torque. A supercharged 6.2-liter V8 makes 650 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque and rockets the Corvette Z06 up to speed in no time. The Stingray can go from zero to 60 mph in as little as 3.8 seconds, while the Z06 hits 60 mph in 2.95 seconds. A seven-speed manual transmission is standard, and an eight-speed automatic is available. The Stingray gets up to 17 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, which is excellent for a V8-powered sports car.

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and Z06 are equipped with a Driver Mode Selector, which adjusts performance characteristics to match the driver's preferences. The Stingray delivers plenty of thrills around corners, while staying level and composed. There's plenty of grip to let you keep your speed up, too. Chevrolet Corvette Z06 models have even better handling. When you're done having your fun, the Corvette settles down with a comfortable ride to let you cruise back home.

The Corvette has nice interior materials and a sporty design that angles displays and controls towards the driver, making it feel like the cockpit of an airplane. The standard seats have ample side support to hold you in place, while the available Competition sport seats are even better around fast corners. Tall adults may wish for more headroom, and while there's a great view of the road ahead, visibility to the rear is limited by large roof supports in coupe models. Coupes have a removable carbon fiber roof panel, while convertibles have a power retractable soft top.

Don't think for a second that the Corvette is a stripped-out sports car inside. There are loads of standard features, including dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, a Bose premium audio system, satellite radio, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and an 8-inch touch-screen MyLink infotainment system. Some models have navigation, a head-up display, or a Performance Data Recorder, which lets you record video and performance information. For the most part, the Corvette's tech features are user-friendly, though MyLink can be slow to respond from time to time. There's 15 cubic feet of cargo space in Corvette coupe models, which is great for a sports car. It's almost as much room as in some midsize sedans. Convertible models have only 10 cubic feet of trunk space.

How Safe Is the Corvette?

Like most luxury sports cars, the Corvette was not crash tested. A rearview camera is standard in all models, but the Corvette lacks advanced safety features like forward collision warning.

Should I Consider Another Used Corvette?

Chevy launched the seventh-generation Corvette for the 2014 model year and made some significant changes for 2015, including the introduction of the Corvette Z06. Other 2015 updates include the addition of a Wi-Fi hot spot, the Performance Data Recorder, and an eight-speed automatic transmission, which replaced the six-speed automatic found in 2014 models.

Which Used Chevrolet Corvette Is Right for Me?

The Corvette model lineup is primarily broken down between Stingray and Z06 models, which have different engines, suspensions, and other performance components. The Stingray is available in 1LT, 2LT, and 3LT trims, while the Z06 comes in 1LZ, 2LZ, and 3LZ trims. The Stingray 1LT and Z06 1LZ share the same features, and the same is true for 2LT/2LZ and 3LT/3LZ models. For most buyers, the 1LT or 1LZ trim level should be more than adequate thanks to its long list of standard features. The 2LT and 2LZ trims add a head-up display, an upgraded Bose audio system, and heated and ventilated seats, while 3LT and 3LZ models get navigation and the Performance Data Recorder.

You can also add a Z51 performance package to Stingray models. It brings unique styling elements, along with other performance-enhancing mechanical bits. Stingray Z51 models may also have an adaptive suspension, called magnetic ride control. A Z07 package is available for Z06 models, which adds carbon fiber aero panels, carbon-ceramic brakes, and a few other components.

A certified pre-owned Corvette may suit you best. For all of its certified pre-owned vehicles, Chevy extends the original new-car powertrain warranty to six years or 100,000 miles and provides a one-year/12,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty. Chevrolet CPO vehicles must pass a 172-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read Chevy’s warranty page carefully.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2015 Chevrolet Corvette or 2015 Porsche 911?

Both the Corvette and the Porsche 911 have incredible performance, with brawny engines and lithe handling. To choose between the two, you'll need to decide what's most important to you in a luxury sports car. The 911 costs significantly more, but it has a higher reliability rating, a luxurious cabin, and a second row of seats (though they are small). The 911 is available with a few more advanced safety features than the Corvette, including forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and front and rear parking sensors. The Corvette has a more user-friendly infotainment system and a lot more cargo space.

Which Is Better: 2015 Chevrolet Corvette or 2015 Nissan GT-R?

If performance matters above all else, you'll likely find the Nissan GT-R’s shocking acceleration and incredibly poised handling appealing. Otherwise, you'll be better off with the Corvette. The GT-R gets lower fuel economy estimates than the Corvette, and its cabin is fitted with some mediocre materials. The Corvette offers more features and better cargo room, too.

Which Is Better: 2015 Chevrolet Corvette or 2015 Dodge Viper?

The Corvette is hands-down a better sports car than the Dodge Viper. The Viper is really good at reaching fast speeds in a straight line, but its incredible power is not as easy to use as in other sports cars, and it tends to be less forgiving if the driver makes a mistake. The ride is very firm, making rough roads uncomfortable to drive over. The cabin isn't particularly inviting – it has tough seats and basic materials – but the infotainment system is very easy to use. The Viper also gets one of the lowest predicted reliability ratings in the class.
