Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette, drivers may find the Honda Civic Type R a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Corvette you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Honda Civic Type R, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Honda Civic Type R, 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. The Chevrolet Corvette will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Civic Type R.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Honda Civic Type R, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Corvette takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Civic Type R.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Corvette does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda Civic Type R.

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

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the Honda Civic Type R, making the Honda Civic Type R the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Chevrolet Corvette has significantly less cargo room than the Honda Civic Type R, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Corvette comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Civic Type R.
