2014 Dodge Avenger vs. 2015 Hyundai Sonata Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Dodge Avenger offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Hyundai Sonata. The Hyundai Sonata will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Avenger.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Sonata you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Dodge Avenger, due to its tank size and 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). Whether you pick the Dodge Avenger or the Hyundai Sonata, 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. The Destination Charge for the Dodge Avenger is much higher than that for the Hyundai Sonata.

Dimensions
The Dodge Avenger is about the same width as the Hyundai Sonata. When looking at overall length, the Dodge Avenger takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Sonata.

Handling
The Dodge Avenger has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Sonata, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Avenger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Sonata.
