2016 BMW 550 Gran Turismo vs. 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette, the BMW 550 Gran Turismo may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Corvette you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, 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). The BMW 550 Gran Turismo is somewhat more expensive than 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. The BMW 550 Gran Turismo and the Chevrolet Corvette have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 550 Gran Turismo is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Chevrolet Corvette.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 550 Gran Turismo transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Performance
The BMW 550 Gran Turismo has less horsepower than the Chevrolet Corvette, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the BMW 550 Gran Turismo more than the Chevrolet Corvette, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 550 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 550 Gran Turismo than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
