2013 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class vs. 2013 Chevrolet Corvette Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Chevrolet Corvette will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class as you will with the Chevrolet Corvette, 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 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Corvette, 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. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Chevrolet Corvette.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Corvette, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class and the Chevrolet Corvette.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Mercedes-Benz CL-Class has significantly less cargo room than the Chevrolet Corvette, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz CL-Class than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
