2021 BMW 7-Series vs. 2021 Chevrolet Corvette


The 2021 BMW 7-Series has a gorgeous presentation, rocket level thrust, and the insulation of a recording studio. But how does it compare to the 2021 Chevrolet Corvette, an exotic sports car with massive power yet enough comfort that it can be driven daily?

Design & Style

The Corvette can be purchased in the form of a coupe or convertible, both of which look fantastic. It has a two seat cabin which is roomy and comfortable and unlike most super cars it is versatile and can be raced on a track or used for cross country journeys and daily commutes. Buyers can also get cosmetic racing stripes which come in yellow, red, blue or orange.

The BMW 7-Series sits on twenty inch spoke wheels and cuts a dashing figure. Those that purchase the B7 Alpina will get exclusive green paint, and the Alpina inscription can be seen on its brake calibers. Passengers within the cabin will be completely insulated from external noise, and the air sprung based suspension means that the vehicle can drive on even the toughest roads without bumping around or disturbing the occupants.

Technology & Safety

The BMW 7-Series is equipped with the latest protective countermeasures, which include lane departure assistance, running daytime lights, blind area detection, multiple airbags and frontal impact warnings. It has been tested by all the major agencies including the NHTSA and IIHS and done a stellar job across every metric. Luxuries within the cabin include Myrtle wood trim, leather steering that is handmade, seats that are ventilated which can provide back massages, and ambient lighting with climate control.

Though the Corvette has some driver assistance tech, it is limited when compared to the BMW. Buyers can get automatic alerts for cross traffic in the rear and blind area monitoring, but that’s about it. Luxuries within its cabin are plentiful and include eight inch touch displays, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, 4G LTE and Bluetooth.


The Corvette is Chevrolet’s most powerful car. It comes with a V8; 6.2 liter engine that can generate 495 horsepower, which enables it to accelerate from zero to sixty in 2.8 seconds, and those that purchase the Z51 package will also get summer tires and more powerful brakes. Those that purchase the BMW Alpina B7 will get a V8, 4.4 liter engine that can generate 600 horsepower, which enables it to blaze from zero to sixty in 3.2 seconds.

The Bottom Line

Though both vehicles are tied when it comes to 0 to 60 acceleration time, the BMW 7-Series has superior top speed (205 mph versus 184 mph), larger touch displays (10 inches versus 8 inches), seats more passengers (5 versus 2), and has more safety features than the Corvette, which makes it the winner.
