2015 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class vs. 2016 Chevrolet Corvette Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette, the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz SL-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 SL-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 SL-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is much wider than the Chevrolet Corvette, 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 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, which is slightly longer than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is somewhat more powerful than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class and the Chevrolet Corvette. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Chevrolet Corvette.

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