2013 BMW 135 vs. 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 135, drivers may find the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW 135, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the BMW 135 is clearly a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW 135 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 135 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW 135 is slightly shorter than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The BMW 135 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 135 is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW 135 offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW 135 has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 135 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
