2016 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2015 Nissan GT-R Review

Comparison Review

The Nissan GT-R will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette.

The Chevrolet Corvette will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Nissan GT-R, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Corvette is clearly a better financial choice over the Nissan GT-R. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Nissan GT-R.

The Chevrolet Corvette is about the same width as the Nissan GT-R. The Chevrolet Corvette is slightly shorter than the Nissan GT-R, which may make it easier to park.

With similar torque, the Chevrolet Corvette and the Nissan GT-R do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

The Chevrolet Corvette has less horsepower than the Nissan GT-R, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the Nissan GT-R, making the Nissan GT-R 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 Nissan GT-R.

The Chevrolet Corvette comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan GT-R.
