Comparison Review

As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Corvette and the MINI MINI-Convertible in the front seats.

With the Chevrolet Corvette you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the MINI MINI-Convertible, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 MINI MINI-Convertible, 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 Destination Charge for the Chevrolet Corvette is much higher than that for the MINI MINI-Convertible.

Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the MINI MINI-Convertible, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Chevrolet Corvette, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the MINI MINI-Convertible.

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

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 MINI MINI-Convertible.

The Chevrolet Corvette has less seating than the MINI MINI-Convertible, making the MINI MINI-Convertible the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Chevrolet Corvette will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the MINI MINI-Convertible.

The basic warranty of the Chevrolet Corvette is not as nearly as extensive as that of the MINI MINI-Convertible.
