Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Corvette and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Corvette as you will with the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Chevrolet Corvette is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, which may make it easier to park.

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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Performance
