Chevrolet Corvette

In its second year of production, the C5 Corvette makes our 10Best list for the second time, owing to its stellar blend of value, performance, practicality, and extroverted personality, as well as a few useful enhancements.

Able to reach a top speed of 175 mph, and streak through the standing quarter-mile in 13.3 seconds, this Corvette's speed can humiliate any other car's in its price range. This muscle collaborates with the Corvette's tenacious grip, excellent handling balance, and powerful brakes to produce supercar performance at a price that millions can afford.

Moreover, the Corvette takes advantage of its large dimensions to provide ample carrying capacity for everyday commutes as well as long-distance trips for two. And the new active-handling option provides the Vette with impressive security, even in potentially treacherous climates such as Michigan's.

The new hardtop version for '99 offers a slightly less expensive entree into the Corvette experience, although we are partial to the more attractive profiles of the coupe and convertible. In all three forms, however, the Corvette is a refined, practical sports car with performance that simply can't be matched at the price.
