Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Corvette will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

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 S-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). Based on MSRP, the Chevrolet Corvette is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz S-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 S-Class.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Corvette is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 S-Class.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Chevrolet Corvette doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

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

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