2014 BMW M235 vs. 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M235 and the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW M235, 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW M235 is clearly a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. 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 M235 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M235 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW M235 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

Drivetrain
The BMW M235 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M235 is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW M235 offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW M235 has less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW M235 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
