2014 Acura ILX Hybrid vs. 2015 Dodge Charger Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Charger than the Acura ILX Hybrid, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura ILX Hybrid and the Dodge Charger in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Acura ILX Hybrid as you will with the Dodge Charger, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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). Based on MSRP, the Acura ILX Hybrid is clearly a better financial choice over the Dodge Charger. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Acura ILX Hybrid will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Dodge Charger.

Dimensions
Since the Acura ILX Hybrid is much slimmer than the Dodge Charger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Acura ILX Hybrid, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Charger.

Drivetrain
The Acura ILX Hybrid has much less torque than the Dodge Charger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura ILX Hybrid has a smaller turning radius than the Dodge Charger, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura ILX Hybrid is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Charger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura ILX Hybrid and the Dodge Charger. The Acura ILX Hybrid has significantly less cargo room than the Dodge Charger, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Acura ILX Hybrid than that of the Dodge Charger.
