When you are trying to decide on what car is right for you, it can be a pain. But it's often helpful to compare two different models to each other and see which has more to offer. Other times, however, it is more useful to look at a vehicle from a previous year and compare it to the same model from an upcoming year. Looking at the 2020 Chevy Corvette vs 2019 Chevy Corvette, for example, can give you a good idea of everything the 2020 model is bringing to the table.
The biggest and most obvious difference between these two Corvettes is the position of the engine – 2019 has the traditional front-engine design, while the 2020 model features a powerful mid-engine layout. Not only that, but the engine in the 2020 model is more powerful than the one in the previous year, which makes sense since it is essentially an evolution of the prior engine. The inside of the 2020 model has also been completely redesigned to take advantage of the new overall shape of the vehicle that comes from the shift in engine location.
Essentially, the 2020 Chevy Corvette is technically superior in pretty much every way, unless you are looking at something like the 2019 Chevy Corvette ZR1, which costs far more. That does not mean the 2019 Chevy Corvette is a bad vehicle, far from it. The 2019 model is the epitome of what a traditional Corvette could be – with its engine position simply creating a limitation on what Chevrolet's engineers could do with it. If you want a front-engine Corvette, then a 2019 model is a perfect choice, but if you are looking for something completely new, then a 2020 model is the way to go.
