Comparison Review

Comfort
The Lexus RC 350 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 Chevrolet Corvette as you will with the Lexus RC 350, 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). The Chevrolet Corvette will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus RC 350, 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 350.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Lexus RC 350, 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 350.

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 350.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus RC 350. 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 350, making the Lexus RC 350 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 350.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus RC 350.
