One of the best known magazines in the automotive industry, Road & Track choose the new Chevrolet Corvette as the Performance Car of the Year. The choice is surprising as the pool had quite a few very strong competitors, from BMW M6 to Porsche Cayman S and Nissan GT-R.

Other cars in the competition were the Audi R8 V10 Plus; BMW 435i; Ferrari F12 Berlinetta; Ford Fiesta ST; Jaguar F-Type V8 S; Jaguar XFR-S; Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model Wagon; Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series; Mini John Cooper Works GP.

It is huge news that Chevrolet Corvette succeeded to win against these cars. The prize shows once again that the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette lives up to its great heritage, and – who knows – it might be among the all time favorite Corvettes.

It was no easy win, though. The Road & Track tested throughly the cars: first, they were pitted against each other on The Motown Mile, Road & Track’s private circuit. Then the best six were taken to challenging mountain roads, and driven to the edge. Drivers called the Chevrolet Corvette ‘wickedly fast’ and a ‘delight to drive’. It also looks astonishing, and its price tag is unexpectedly low for its performance.

The magazine also chose the best cars of the year in eight categories. Apart from the Chevrolet Corvette, the best luxury sedan is the Cadillac CTS, and the best family sedan is the Mazda 6. Land Rover Range Rover Sport became the best SUV, the new Chevrolet Silverado being chosen the best pickup.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the best wagon, the new Mazda 3 being the best Economy Car. The title for the Best Diesel goes to the 2014 Audi A8 TDI V-6. The best electric car is the 2014 Fiat 500e.
