Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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 E-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 E-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Chevrolet Corvette has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Corvette transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Utility
The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making the Mercedes-Benz E-Class the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

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