The Corvette has standard OnStar®, which uses a global positioning satellite (GPS) receiver and a cellular system to get turn-by-turn driving directions, remotely unlock your doors if you lock your keys in, help track down your vehicle if it’s stolen or send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy. The Huracán doesn’t offer a GPS response system, only a navigation computer with no live response for emergencies, so if you’re involved in an accident and you’re incapacitated help may not come as quickly.

Both the Corvette and the Huracán have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding and daytime running lights.

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). Lamborghini doesn’t pay scheduled maintenance for the Huracán.

There are over 97 times as many Chevrolet dealers as there are Lamborghini dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Corvette’s warranty.

On the EPA test cycle the Corvette Z06 Auto S.C. V8 gets better highway fuel mileage than the Huracán LP580-2 Coupe RWD Auto (23 hwy vs. 21 hwy).

An engine control system that can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders helps improve the Corvette’s fuel efficiency. The Huracán 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 Huracán requires premium, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

In an emergency stopping situation, many drivers don’t press the brakes with enough force to stop the vehicle in the shortest distance. The Corvette has a standard brake assist system to detect emergency braking situations (by how hard and how quickly the brake pedal is pressed) and then automatically apply maximum braking immediately in order to help prevent a collision. The Huracán doesn’t offer a brake assist feature.

The Corvette stops much shorter than the Huracán:

For better traction, the Corvette Z06/Grand Sport’s tires are larger than the largest tires available on the Huracán (F:285/30R19 & R:335/25R20 vs. F:245/30R20 & R:305/30R20).

The Corvette Z06/Grand Sport’s 335/25R20 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 25 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the Huracán LP 610-4’s 30 series tires.

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires standard on the Corvette can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The Huracán doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Corvette’s wheelbase is 3.6 inches longer than on the Huracán (106.7 inches vs. 103.1 inches).

The Corvette’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50% to 50%) than the Huracán’s (43% to 57%). This gives the Corvette more stable handling and braking.

The Corvette Z06 Coupe handles at 1.19 G’s, while the Huracán LP 610-4 Coupe 4x4 pulls only 1.01 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.

The Corvette Z06 Coupe executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver quicker than the Huracán LP 610-4 Coupe 4x4 (22.3 seconds @ 1.06 average G’s vs. 23 seconds @ .98 average G’s).

The Corvette Auto has a standard remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Huracán doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

When two different drivers share the Corvette, the optional memory system makes it convenient for both. Each setting activates different, customized memories for the driver’s seat position, steering wheel position and outside mirror angle. The Huracán doesn’t offer a memory system.

The Corvette’s optional easy entry system raises the steering wheel and glides the driver’s seat back when the door is unlocked or the ignition is switched off, making it easier for the driver to get in and out. The Huracán doesn’t offer an easy entry system.

The Corvette’s front power windows open or close with one touch of the switches, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths, or when talking with someone outside of the car. The Huracán’s power windows’ switches have to be held the entire time to close them fully.

To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the Corvette has standard extendable sun visors. The Huracán doesn’t offer extendable visors.

The Corvette’s sun-visors swivel front-to-side to block glare from the side windows. The Huracán’s visors are fixed into the windshield header.

The Corvette’s optional rear and side view mirrors have an automatic dimming feature. These mirrors can be set to automatically darken quickly when headlights shine on them, keeping following vehicles from blinding or distracting the driver. The Huracán doesn’t offer the luxury of automatic dimming mirrors.

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 Huracán doesn’t offer air conditioned seats.

To help keep the driver’s hands on the wheel, the Corvette has standard steering wheel controls for the radio. The Huracán doesn’t offer steering wheel audio controls.
