Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette, the BMW 230 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 BMW 230 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 230 is clearly a better financial choice over the Chevrolet Corvette. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 230 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 230 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW 230 is slightly shorter than the Chevrolet Corvette, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The BMW 230 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Corvette, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 230 is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Corvette. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW 230 offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW 230 has less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 230 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
