2013 BMW 535 Gran Turismo vs. 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette, the BMW 535 Gran Turismo may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the BMW 535 Gran Turismo you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Corvette, due to its larger tank size and better 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 535 Gran Turismo is clearly a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Corvette. 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 535 Gran Turismo will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Dimensions
The BMW 535 Gran Turismo is a little narrower than the Chevrolet Corvette, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the BMW 535 Gran Turismo, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Chevrolet Corvette.

Drivetrain
The BMW 535 Gran Turismo has much less torque than the Chevrolet Corvette, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 535 Gran Turismo has a larger turning radius than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 535 Gran Turismo is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Corvette. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the BMW 535 Gran Turismo more than the Chevrolet Corvette, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 535 Gran Turismo will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 535 Gran Turismo than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
