2013 BMW 135 vs. 2014 Dodge Challenger Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW 135 than in the Dodge Challenger, due to the BMW 135's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Dodge Challenger will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 135.

Convenience
The Dodge Challenger requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW 135, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Whether you pick the BMW 135 or the Dodge Challenger, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 BMW 135 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Dodge Challenger.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 135 is much slimmer than the Dodge Challenger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 135, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Challenger.

Drivetrain
The BMW 135 has much less torque than the Dodge Challenger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 135 has a smaller turning radius than the Dodge Challenger, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 135 is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Challenger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW 135 has less seating than the Dodge Challenger, making the Dodge Challenger the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 135 than that of the Dodge Challenger.
