Chevrolet pays for scheduled maintenance on the Corvette for 2 years and 24,000 miles. Chevrolet will pay for oil changes, lubrication and any other required maintenance (up to 2 oil changes). Infiniti doesn’t pay scheduled maintenance for the Q60 Coupe.

There are almost 15 times as many Chevrolet dealers as there are Infiniti dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Corvette’s warranty.

An engine control system that can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders helps improve the Corvette’s fuel efficiency. The Q60 Coupe doesn’t offer a system that can shut down part of the engine.

To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Chevrolet Corvette uses regular unleaded gasoline (premium recommended for maximum performance). The Q60 Coupe requires premium, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

The Corvette has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The Q60 Coupe doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.

For better stopping power the Corvette Z07’s brake rotors are larger than those on the Q60 Coupe:

 

Corvette Z07

Q60 Coupe

Q60 Coupe Sport/Red Sport 400

Front Rotors

15.5 inches

12.6 inches

14 inches

Rear Rotors

15.3 inches

12.1 inches

13.8 inches

The Corvette Z06 offers optional heat-treated ceramic brake rotors, which last ten to twenty times as long as conventional cast iron rotors, don’t rust, don’t fade during repeated high speed braking, and their lighter weight contribute to better braking, handling and acceleration. The Q60 Coupe doesn’t offer ceramic brake rotors.

For better traction, the Corvette Z06/Grand Sport’s tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Q60 Coupe (F:285/30R19 & R:335/25R20 vs. 245/40R19).

The Corvette’s standard 285/35R19 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 35 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Q60 Coupe’s 40 series tires. The Corvette Z06/Grand Sport’s 285/30R19 front and 335/25R20 rear tires have a lower 30 series front and 25 series rear profile than the Q60 Coupe’s optional 40 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Corvette offers optional 20-inch rear wheels. The Q60 Coupe’s largest wheels are only 19-inches.

The Corvette has standard front and rear gas-charged shocks for better control over choppy roads. The Q60 Coupe’s suspension doesn’t offer gas-charged shocks.

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the Corvette is 1.9 inches wider in the front than the average track on the Q60 Coupe.

The Corvette’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50% to 50%) than the Q60 Coupe’s (55% to 45%). This gives the Corvette more stable handling and braking.

The Chevrolet Corvette may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 450 pounds less than the Infiniti Q60 Coupe.

The Corvette is 7.5 inches shorter than the Q60 Coupe, making the Corvette easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The Corvette’s instruments include an oil pressure gauge and a temperature gauge – which could save your engine! Often ‘idiot lights’ don’t warn you until damage has been done. The Q60 Coupe does not have an oil pressure gauge.

The Corvette offers an optional heads-up display that projects speed and other key instrumentation readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The Q60 Coupe doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

Optional air conditioned seats in the Corvette keep the driver and front passenger comfortable and take the sting out of hot seats in Summer. The Q60 Coupe doesn’t offer air conditioned seats.
