Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 430 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 430 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 430 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 430 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 430 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Corvette, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW 430, which is slightly longer than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 430 is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Corvette. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The BMW 430 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Corvette, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
The BMW 430 offers greater seating capacity than the Chevrolet Corvette, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 430 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
