The Chevrolet Corvette convertible is upon us, but what do you think of the way it looks? That variant brings with it perhaps even bigger changes than the C 8 coupe did when it made its debut. Namely, the soft top is gone, in favor of a retractable hard top unit that goes up or down in 16 seconds.

Chevrolet has finally revealed the 2020 Corvette C8 convertible, which ditches the traditional soft top for a power retractable hard top.

When you look at it next to the coupe, the convertible's styling differences aren't immediately apparent from the front fascia. The moment you move to the side, however, the obvious lack of a rear hatch and the smaller glass area distinguish the convertible from the coupe. Move around to the back and we find more key differences like the fairings behind the seats and the repositioned rear window in between both seats.

In the coupe, the swoopy rear window and hatch show off the C8's engine eye candy every time you approach the car from the rear.

Another distinguishing feature on the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 convertible is the ability to get the retractable roof in all-black  for a two-tone look. Additionally, the black accents can extend to the A-pillar and the top part of the fairings, the latter of which can be had in black even if you opt for a body-colored roof.

The 1962 Chevrolet Corvette is the last year of the first-generation run of the Corvette. It’s also evident how much of a precursor the 1962 was for the ultra-popular Sting Ray body style that would soon follow. Not only that, it was the last year of the solid-axle Corvettes, as they would turn over into a rear-independent suspension layout in 1963 - something the Corvette has become well-known for over the decades since.

The convertible also keeps the coupe ’s front storage compartment, which can fit an airline-spec carry-on and a laptop bag. The hardtop provides a quieter cabin, increased security and a cleaner look compared to the previous NEW 2020 C 8 Corvette Convertible vs Coupe Mid Engine Corvette !

The interior designs for both the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 coupe and convertible are virtually identical. Only switches to raise or lower the roof and open the rear window are unique to the Corvette C8 convertible. If you want to remove the roof panel on the coupe, you need to do it manually. Otherwise, the strip of climate control buttons remains, as does the digital gauge cluster and the 8.0-inch touchscreen turned toward the driver. The same seat styles available in the coupe can be had in the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 convertible, including the competition buckets.

For now, the 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 will only come with a 6.2-liter V-8 with up to 495 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque when equipped with the available performance exhaust system. An eight-speed dual-clutch automatic will be the only transmission available. Chevrolet has yet to announce more powerful variants like the Z06 and ZR1, both of which are expected to arrive later in the Corvette C8's life cycle.
