The Nissan GT-R comes standard with an automatic transmission, for driver comfort, especially in the city. Automatic costs extra on the Corvette.

The GT-R offers a standard sequential manual gearbox (SMG). With no clutch pedal to worry about and a fully automatic mode, an SMG is much more efficient than a conventional automatic but just as easy to drive. The Corvette doesn’t offer an SMG.

All wheel drive, available in the GT-R, provides the best traction for acceleration in wet, dry, and icy conditions. In corners, all wheel drive allows both outside wheels to provide power, balancing the car. This allows for better handling. The Chevrolet Corvette is not available with all wheel drive.

For better traction, the GT-R has larger front tires than the Corvette (F:255/40R20 & R:285/35R20 vs. F:245/35R19 & R:285/30R20).

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the GT-R has standard 20-inch wheels. Only 19-inch front wheels are available on the Corvette.

The front and rear suspension of the GT-R uses coil springs for better ride, handling and control than the Corvette, which uses transverse leafs springs. Coil springs compress more progressively and offer more suspension travel for a smoother ride with less bottoming out.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the GT-R’s wheelbase is 2.7 inches longer than on the Corvette (109.4 inches vs. 106.7 inches).

The GT-R NISMO executes Motor Trend’s “Figure Eight” maneuver 1 seconds quicker than the Corvette Stingray Coupe (22.9 seconds @ .92 average G’s vs. 23.9 seconds @ .82 average G’s).

For better maneuverability, the GT-R’s turning circle is 1.1 feet tighter than the Corvette’s (36.6 feet vs. 37.7 feet). The GT-R NISMO’s turning circle is .3 feet tighter than the Corvette’s (37.4 feet vs. 37.7 feet).

The design of the Nissan GT-R amounts to more than styling. The GT-R has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .26 Cd. That is lower than the Corvette (.29). A more efficient exterior helps the GT-R go faster and keeps the interior quieter. It also helps the GT-R get better fuel mileage.

The GT-R uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The Corvette doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

The GT-R has standard seating for 4 passengers; the Corvette can only carry 2.

The GT-R has 27 cubic feet more passenger volume than the Corvette (79 vs. 52).

The GT-R has .2 inches more front headroom, 1.6 inches more front legroom and 1 inch more front hip room than the Corvette.

The GT-R’s standard power windows have a locking feature to keep children from operating them. Chevrolet does not offer a locking feature on the Corvette’s standard power windows.

The GT-R’s speed-sensitive wipers speed up when the vehicle does, so that the driver doesn’t have to continually adjust the speed of the wipers. The Corvette’s manually variable intermittent wipers have to be constantly adjusted.
