Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW Z4 and the Chevrolet Corvette in the front seats.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Corvette requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW Z4, 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW Z4 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 Z4 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Dimensions
Since the BMW Z4 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 BMW Z4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Corvette.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW Z4 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 Z4 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Corvette, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW Z4 and the Chevrolet Corvette. The BMW Z4 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 BMW Z4 than that of the Chevrolet Corvette.
