2015 BMW 640 vs. 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette, the BMW 640 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The BMW 640 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Chevrolet Corvette, 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 640 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Corvette, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 640 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Dimensions
The BMW 640 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 640, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Chevrolet Corvette.

Drivetrain
The BMW 640 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Corvette, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 640 has about the same turning radius as the Chevrolet Corvette, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 640 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
The BMW 640 offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW 640 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 640 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
