2014 Acura TSX vs. 2014 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 TSX, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Acura TSX and the Dodge Charger in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Acura TSX you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Dodge Charger, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Acura TSX will have less of an impact on your bank account than 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. The Acura TSX carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Charger.

Dimensions
Since the Acura TSX 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 TSX, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Charger.

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

Handling
The Acura TSX 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 TSX 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 TSX and the Dodge Charger. The Acura TSX has less cargo capacity than the Dodge Charger, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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