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
The Mercedes-Benz E-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 E-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 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. If you go with the Chevrolet Corvette, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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 E-Class.

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.

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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Chevrolet Corvette as you will in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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