2013 Chevrolet Corvette vs. 2013 Volvo C70 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Corvette and the Volvo C70 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Corvette as you will with the Volvo C70, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Volvo C70, 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 Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Corvette is much higher than that for the Volvo C70.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Volvo C70, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Chevrolet Corvette is slightly shorter than the Volvo C70, 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 Volvo C70.

Handling
The Chevrolet Corvette has about the same turning radius as the Volvo C70, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette has a much more powerful engine than the Volvo C70. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the Volvo C70, making the Volvo C70 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Corvette has less cargo capacity than the Volvo C70, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volvo C70.
