2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 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 Stingray and the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray as you will with the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, 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 Stingray 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 Stingray will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 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 Stingray, 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 Stingray does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 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 Stingray and the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray as you will in the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

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