2013 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLK-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 SLK-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz SLK-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 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class. 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 SLK-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Corvette, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

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 SLK-Class.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Corvette and the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class. The Chevrolet Corvette has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

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