  • Highs Stunning exterior design, sumptuous cabin, blistering performance.

  • Verdict If your need for speed is as bottomless as your bank account, the Chiron will be a thrilling match.

For the most well-heeled among us, the average run-of-the-mill supercar may fall short of fulfilling our needs. If transportation with a six-figure price isn't exclusive enough for your tastes, there's the 2020 Bugatti Chiron. The Chiron costs almost $3 million, and it's about as exotic as hypercars get. With fluid curves and angrily squinting headlights, this coupe's exterior design communicates power and performance, and its standard 1500-hp engine endows it with acceleration capabilities worthy of a bullet train. The Chiron's cabin is deluxe, but storage space is minimal, and amenities such as driver-assistance technology and an infotainment screen are missing. While this Bugatti may not be the most accommodating choice for something as mundane as a daily commute, it excels as a head-turning lust object and all-around performance machine.

What's New for 2020?

Bugatti adds a couple new variants to the Chiron lineup for the 2020 model year. The Chiron Sport 110 Ans Edition is based on the Chiron Sport, and it was created to pay homage to the brand's 110-year anniversary. It features a two-tone exterior color scheme and accents that employ the tricolor French flag. Only 20 of these very special models will be built. Bugatti also welcomes the Super Sport 300+ to the Chiron's roster, and only 30 of them will be offered to the public. The 2020 Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ has nearly the same specs as the car that set a world record by reaching a speed of 304.773 mph at the Ehra-Lessien test track in Germany, and it's motivated by a 1578-hp engine. A handling-focused model called Pur Sport will join the lineup in the second half of 2020.

Pricing and Which One to Buy

People who choose cars such as the Chiron do so because they want a vehicle that makes a jaw-dropping impact on the boulevard or at the valet stand. With its swooping lines and famously stratospheric price, the base Chiron certainly fits the bill. We think this model has what it takes to put a smile on the face of even the most discerning hypercar buyer. The Chiron comes standard with amenities such as quad LED headlights and full power accessories.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Chiron, Chiron Sport, and Chiron Super Sport 300+ are motivated by an 8.0-liter 16-cylinder powerplant. This beast of an engine employs four turbochargers to generate a mighty 1500 horsepower and 1180 lb-ft of torque. Bugatti claims that the Chiron makes the dash from zero to 60 mph in a mere 2.3 seconds, and it has a top speed of 261 mph. If the Chiron's standard engine doesn't quench your thirst for speed, step up to the Chiron Super Sport 300+. This model is equipped with a slightly more potent version of the base powerplant, and it produces 1578 horsepower. Piloted by factory test driver Andy Wallace, a model with specs almost identical to those of the Chiron Super Sport 300+ logged a record-setting 304.773 mph when pushed by Bugatti at the track. With every model in the Chiron lineup, power is sent to all four wheels by a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG

As one would expect from a car with a 1500-hp engine, the Chiron won't win any points for being eco-friendly. According to the EPA, the 2019 Chiron achieves mileage (we hesitate to use the words "fuel economy") of 9/14 mpg city/highway. That performance is poor enough to place this Bugatti on the EPA's list of the least efficient cars of 2019. We expect the 2020 model to deliver identical numbers.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

The Chiron's exterior features a C-shaped design cue carved into its side panels, and this element is also present within the car's cabin. It's reflected in the graceful curve of a partition that separates driver and passenger. Bugatti has dressed the Chiron's cabin in top-of-the-line materials, and the interior bears space-age styling elements that add whimsical charm. A flat-bottomed steering wheel greets the driver, and Bugatti claims the glossy center console is made from a single piece of solid aluminum. With the Chiron, it's best to pack light. The trunk provides just two cubic feet of cargo space.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The Chiron's singular focus on performance brings with it compromises on the infotainment front. This Bugatti functions much like a race car, and it has the stripped-down tech content to match. There's no infotainment screen, and features such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability aren't offered. The car's infotainment amenities are pretty much limited to a sound system and a trip computer. On the plus side, the sound system delivers impeccable sound quality, and it features four tweeters that each utilize a one-carat diamond membrane for precision output. That's what you'd expect from a car with a price that starts in the millions.

Safety and Driver-Assistance Features

The 2020 Bugatti Chiron hasn't been crash tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). It's not offered with commonly available driver-assistance features such as blind-spot monitoring.

Warranty and Maintenance Coverage

Bugatti offers a four year warranty on all Chiron models and covers maintenance for the vehicle over the same time period.

  • Limited warranty covers 4 years
  • Powertrain warranty covers 4 years
  • Complimentary scheduled maintenance for 4 years
