In 2019, two fast cars are trying to get to the top of the sports cars category. One of them is a sophomore and the other is a seasoned veteran. Compared to the other teams, they both have their good and bad points. Find out which of the 2019 Lexus RC F and the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette gets to the finish line first.
The Lexus RC F and the Chevrolet Corvette are both interesting options for drivers who want a powerful ride. Both of them look great and have powerful engines that will make them exciting to drive. By comparing the two cars more closely, they will be able to choose the one that best fits their needs.
Comfort and Convenience
The Lexus FC F has more head room and leg room than the Chevrolet Corvette. This is great for taller drivers and people who want a roomier car. The Chevrolet Corvette only has two seats, but the Lexus RC F has four. This will definitely have a big effect on what people choose. The Lexus RC F is a better choice than the Chevrolet Corvette for drivers who often have to take kids to school or meet with clients. On the other hand, you can carry more things in the Chevrolet Corvette. So, it doesn’t have as many seats as the Lexus RC F, but it can carry more bags and other things. Drivers will have to choose between these two options. Is space for cargo or seats more important?
There are a lot of differences in how big and easy to move these two cars are. The Chevrolet Corvette is much wider than the Lexus RC F. This means it will be harder to get in and out of tight spaces and find a parking spot that is big enough to be comfortable. On the other hand, it is shorter than the Lexus RC F, which may make it easier for some drivers to get in and out of parking spaces and garages. The only way for a customer to know what they like is to test drive it.
The Lexus RC F is the clear winner here. The Lexus RC F gets much better gas mileage than the Chevrolet Corvette. It gets 18–20 mpg in town and 24–28 mpg on the open road. The Chevrolet Corvette gets 13–16 mpg in the city and 19–25 mpg on the highway, according to the company that makes it.
Power and Performance
The engine in the Chevy Corvette is a V8. This gives it much more torque than the Lexus RC F’s V6 engine. In the end, the engine in the Chevrolet Corvette is better at sending power straight to the wheels. The Chevrolet Corvette has more horsepower because its engine is stronger. This power makes driving fun, but people need to know that it can also make insurance rates go up.
The manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) for the 2019 Chevrolet Corvette is between $52,099 and $112,679. The price range for the 2019 Lexus RC F is $40,520–$42,534. There are a lot of things that go into how much a car costs overall. Even if you just look at the base price, the Chevrolet Corvette is more expensive than the Lexus RC F, which is less expensive. The basic warranty for the Lexus RC F is also better (4 years/50,000 miles). A basic warranty covers the Chevrolet Corvette for 3 years or 36,000 miles.
When people look at these two cars, they see that they both offer great driving experiences. Both are also known for how well they work and how they handle. Even though there are some big differences and some smaller ones, it will come down to the size of the engine and the size of the cabin’s interior and seats. When it comes to these things, it will really depend on what the customer wants or needs. Both choices are good cars that consumers will like.
Previous 2016 Model Year Comparisons
What better way to start comparing two powerful cars than by looking at what’s under the hood of each one?
Sometimes newer is better, but when it comes to power, the old school Corvette still has what it takes to leave most of the competition in the dust.
The Chevrolet Corvette 2016 2-Door Z06 Convertible w/3LZ has a 6.2 Liter Gas V8 engine that is a beast and can make 650 horsepower and 650 net torque.
The 2016 Lexus RC F, on the other hand, has a 5.0-liter Premium Unleaded V-8 engine that can give its driver 467 horsepower and 389 net torque.
The Lexus RC F isn’t even close to the Corvette when it comes to engine power, but it gets better gas mileage. The RC F gets about 16 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. On the other hand, the Corvette gets about 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, according to estimates.
Lexus buyers will be happy with how much gas they use, but the 2016 RC F only comes in one trim, which might bother some people.
Chevrolet, on the other hand, made sure that people who want to buy a Corvette had a lot of choices. There are 18 different trims for the Chevrolet coupe that people can choose from. Corvette trims include the Stingray Coupe, Stingray Convertible, Stingray Coupe Z51, Stingray Convertible Z51, Coupe Z06, and Convertible Z06. They come in 1LT, 2LT, 3LT, 1LZ, 2LZ, and 3LZ.
Now let’s get to the fun part: what these cars come with. First of all, neither of these cars would be fun to play with on the track. The RC F can go from 0 to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 168 mph, which is no laughing matter. Still, the Corvette’s numbers are so much more realistic than the RC F’s because the Stingray can go from 0 to 60 in 3.7 seconds. Even more impressive is that the Corvette Z06 can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.95 seconds.
Along with its race-car-like specs, the Corvette has a lot of other features for the driver’s comfort, such as the Chevrolet MyLink, which “keeps you connected and entertained with a retractable 8-inch diagonal high-definition MyLink colour touch-screen.” “You can talk, text, and stream music without taking your hands off the wheel thanks to controls on the steering wheel, hand gesture recognition, and voice recognition,” says Chevrolet.com.
Lexus also added a number of features to make its customers more comfortable and safe, such as the innovative Siri Eyes Free, which “connects with your compatible iPhone®* to let you check your e-mail, send text messages, and do more.” Siri can also search through your portable music library and use the results to make personalised playlists.
The 2016 Chevrolet Corvette has a wide range of trims, so it makes sense that the prices are also very different. Starting at $55,400 for the Corvette 2-Door Stingray Coupe 1LT and going all the way up to $83,400 for the Corvette 2-Door Convertible Z06 3LZ.
The base price for the 2016 Lexus RC F is $62,805.
