Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus RC 300 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Corvette will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Lexus RC 300, 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 Lexus RC 300, 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 Lexus RC 300.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Lexus RC 300, 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 Lexus RC 300.

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 Lexus RC 300.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus RC 300. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the Lexus RC 300, making the Lexus RC 300 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 Lexus RC 300.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus RC 300.
