Comparison Review

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

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Chevrolet Corvette, 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 C-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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

Powertrain
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 C-Class.

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz C-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
