2014 BMW 650 vs. 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette, the BMW 650 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 650 as you will with the Chevrolet Corvette, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 650 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. In this case, the BMW 650 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Dimensions
The BMW 650 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 650, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Chevrolet Corvette.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW 650 and the Chevrolet Corvette do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW 650 has about the same turning radius as the Chevrolet Corvette, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 650 has less horsepower than the Chevrolet Corvette, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The BMW 650 offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW 650 has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Corvette, 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 650 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
