2013 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2014 BMW 435 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette, drivers may find the BMW 435 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The BMW 435 requires fewer visits to 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 Chevrolet Corvette will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 435, 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. The Chevrolet Corvette will cost more in transportation costs than the BMW 435.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the BMW 435, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Chevrolet Corvette is slightly shorter than the BMW 435, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Corvette does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW 435.

Handling
The Chevrolet Corvette has a larger turning radius than the BMW 435, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 435. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the BMW 435, making the BMW 435 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Corvette will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW 435.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette is not as nearly as extensive as that of the BMW 435.
