Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette, drivers may find the Mercedes-Benz SL 550 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz SL 550 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Corvette, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 SL 550. 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 SL 550.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz SL 550, 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 SL 550, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Corvette transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz SL 550.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz SL 550. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Corvette and the Mercedes-Benz SL 550. The Chevrolet Corvette has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz SL 550, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz SL 550.
