2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe
The 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray vs. the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe
If you’re looking for a track ready sports car that can also offer commute ready comfort, then you’ve got some high-quality vehicles vying for your dollars. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Coupe is certainly a distinctive choice, but it simply can’t match up with the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. Here at Tom Gill Chevy, we know firsthand that the all-new, seventh generation Corvette is a world-class sports car ready to take on anything, in any price range. Read on to find out why you should drive home in American muscle instead of the German supercar.
- Power: The Corvette Stingray is the most powerful base Corvette ever with 455 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque—or 460 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque with the dual-mode exhaust. That’s enough to send the Corvette Z51 from 0 to 60 mph in a jaw-dropping 4.1 seconds. The C63 AMG makes a respectable 451 hp and 443 lb-ft and Mercedes-Benz estimates it will take 4.5 seconds to get to 62 mph. The choice for raw power and performance is obvious.
- Efficiency: Sure it might not be your first concern if you’re buying a car with 450+ hp but it’s still a major concern long term. The C63 gets an abysmal 13 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway. The Corvette Stingray uses smart direct injection and cylinder deactivation, combined with a super tall cruising gear to achieve 29 mpg on the highway and 17 mpg in the city with the manual—very impressive for a performance car of this caliber.
- Price: You’ll be paying about $10,000 more for the privilege of driving the imported car, with a MSRP of $65,375. The Corvette Stingray starts at only $51,995—and the top end Z51 performance package runs $54,795 MSRP. The ‘Vette is a performance bargain no matter how you slice it.
