3 Stylish Chevys for Sporty Grandparents
Next Avenue recently named the top five vehicles suitable for grandparents. The only sporty option on the list, however, was the Corvette Stingray. Though this ride definitely has its advantages, here are two additional Chevy models that older drivers should consider purchasing — especially if they value sleek looks, speedy performance, and advanced safety features.

Not every grandparent wants a pragmatic, sensible commuter car for their next ride. It’s easy to maintain the image of cool, modern grandparent when you pick up the grandkids in this contoured beauty. The 6.2-liter V8 under the hood generates 460 horsepower for thrilling drives. Safety technology includes a Brembo braking system, as well as active handling stability control with traction control, to ensure passengers are protected no matter where the road leads.
The Camaro embodies an even more potent mode of transport than the Corvette. Equipped with a 6.2-liter Supercharged V8 engine, the ZL1 model surges with 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. A LATCH system increases protection for young passengers. Teen Driver technology will complement help grandchildren cultivate safe driving habits, as they learn the rules of the road behind the wheel of this trendy muscle car.
For grandparents who prefer an agile ride with a cheaper price tag, a pre-owned Chevy SS should suit. The 2017 model year version boasts a 6.2-liter V8 engine that generates a 415 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. This version also comes with eight airbags and a rear vision camera, to protect passengers. StabiliTrak technology enhances the car’s balance on varying road conditions. Advanced driver assist technologies — like Automatic Parking Assist, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert — will provide more peace of mind on each journey.
