2015 Buick Verano vs. 2014 Dodge Avenger Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Avenger than the Buick Verano, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Dodge Avenger will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Verano.

Convenience
The Dodge Avenger requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Buick Verano, 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). The Buick Verano is somewhat more expensive than the Dodge Avenger. 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 Buick Verano will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Dodge Avenger.

Dimensions

Handling
The Buick Verano has about the same turning radius as the Dodge Avenger, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
