2013 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Corvette will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz C-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Corvette, 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). The Chevrolet Corvette will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Chevrolet Corvette is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The Chevrolet Corvette has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz C-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
