Every year, Car and Driver releases its list of the 10 best cars currently on sale. The only criteria for 10 Best is the car in question must cost less than $80,000. It’s hard to think of a better performance car for under $80K than Chevrolet’s 2015 Corvette Stingray, which rightfully earned it a spot on this year’s 10 Best list.
The 2015 model year Corvette’s inclusion on the list marks the second year in a row the C7 Stingray has been named one of C&D’s 10 Best. Last year, the Cadillac CTS was also a 10 Best car, and it too has returned for 2015.
C&D had plenty of good things to say about the Corvette last year and they reiterated their sentiments this year. They liked the immediate power delivery, visceral V8 soundtrack, the feedback through the chassis and of course, its value for money. The addition of the quick shifting eight-speed automatic also helped.
Other cars in C&D’s 10 Best list included the BMW M235i, Ford Mustang GT, Mazda 6 and the Volkswagen Golf GTI.
