2015 BMW Z4 vs. 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW Z4 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 Z4, 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). Whether you pick the BMW Z4 or the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Z4 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

Dimensions
Since the BMW Z4 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW Z4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.

Drivetrain
The BMW Z4 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 Z4 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
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW Z4 and the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The BMW Z4 has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, 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 Z4 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
