2018 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Corvette and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class 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 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 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

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.

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.
