2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray vs. 2013 Volvo C70 Review

Comparison Review


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

Convenience
The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Volvo C70, 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 Stingray 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 Stingray is much higher than that for the Volvo C70.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 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 Stingray 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 Stingray does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Volvo C70.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray 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 Stingray has less seating than the Volvo C70, making the Volvo C70 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray has significantly less cargo room than the Volvo C70, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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