Jon Wong/Roadshow The 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray brings some very noteworthy firsts to the sports car party. It’s the first ‘Vette to use a mid-engine layout, the first one to use a dual-clutch transmission and now, with the debut of the 2020 Corvette Convertible on Wednesday, the first one to use a power-folding hardtop.
Up until now, soft tops were the only roofs for Corvette convertible models. But the C8’s move to a hardtop does come with some good benefits, such as a quieter cabin when the roof is up, better security than a ragtop (no cut-and-grab here) and cleaner styling. A body-colored roof comes standard on all cars, though Chevy is letting customers spec a Carbon Flash-painted top for a two-tone appearance.
The composite hardtop, which can be operated at speeds of up to 30 mph, takes 16 seconds to go down thanks to six electric motors. The electric top system is also new replacing the hydraulic unit found in previous Corvette convertibles for improved reliability, according to Chevrolet.
