Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, making it more convenient to drive.

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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which has a much lower MSRP.

In this case, the BMW 550 Gran Turismo will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

Dimensions
The BMW 550 Gran Turismo is a little wider than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze.
