2014 Dodge Challenger vs. 2014 Nissan 370Z Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Challenger and the Nissan 370Z in the front seats.

Convenience
The Nissan 370Z requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Dodge Challenger, 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 Dodge Challenger is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan 370Z. 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 Challenger is much higher than that for the Nissan 370Z.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Challenger is much wider than the Nissan 370Z, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Dodge Challenger, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Nissan 370Z.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Challenger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Nissan 370Z.

Handling
The Dodge Challenger has a significantly larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Challenger has a much more powerful engine than the Nissan 370Z. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Dodge Challenger more than the Nissan 370Z, due to its significantly greater seating capacity.

Warranty
The Dodge Challenger comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan 370Z.
