The new, eighth-generation 2020 Chevrolet Corvette allegedly offers supercar performance and looks at “affordable” prices (the affordability on a $60,000 starting price is certainly up for debate), but up until recently, we’ve only driven models that cost $80,000-plus. The Corvette might offer a lot of bang for even that much buck, but what about the “cheap” one?

With that in mind, Cars.com reviewer Joe Bruzek took to Chevrolet’s media preview in Las Vegas to test out the $60,000 Corvette, plus a Vette with performance options on the track. One of Bruzek’s key takeaways? The base Corvette, called 1LT, is comfortable on the road.
“I was curious if Chevrolet would go overboard on firmness for the base suspension considering the drastic switch in layout and supercar-beating goals of the C8,” Bruzek wrote. “It didn’t. A new coil-over suspension on all four corners replaces the rear transverse spring that supported the Corvette’s caboose for decades, and the ride is more controlled and refined than ever.”
