Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette, drivers may find the Ford Mustang a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Corvette will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Mustang, 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). The Chevrolet Corvette will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Mustang, 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 Chevrolet Corvette will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Ford Mustang.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Corvette is about the same width as the Ford Mustang. The Chevrolet Corvette is slightly shorter than the Ford Mustang, which may make it easier to park.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette has a much more powerful engine than the Ford Mustang. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Corvette transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Ford Mustang.

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the Ford Mustang, making the Ford Mustang the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Corvette has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Ford Mustang.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Corvette comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford Mustang.
