Comparison Review

Comfort
The Nissan LEAF will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Corvette.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Corvette you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan LEAF, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Chevrolet Corvette will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan LEAF, 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 Nissan LEAF.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Nissan LEAF, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Chevrolet Corvette, which is slightly longer than the Nissan LEAF.

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 Nissan LEAF.

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

Utility
Those who have to chauffeur around a lot of people should beware, the Chevrolet Corvette seats a lot fewer people than the Nissan LEAF. The Chevrolet Corvette has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan LEAF, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Corvette comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan LEAF.
