2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray vs. 2013 BMW 135 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 135, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW 135, due to its larger tank size and better 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 Stingray will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 135, 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 Stingray will cost more in transportation costs than the BMW 135.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is much wider than the BMW 135, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, which is slightly longer than the BMW 135.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW 135.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 135. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has less seating than the BMW 135, making the BMW 135 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW 135.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is not as nearly as extensive as that of the BMW 135.
