2014 Dodge Challenger vs. 2014 Nissan LEAF Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Dodge Challenger offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Nissan LEAF with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Nissan LEAF will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Challenger.

Convenience
With the Dodge Challenger you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan LEAF, 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). The Dodge Challenger is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan LEAF. 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 LEAF.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Challenger is much wider than the Nissan LEAF, 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 LEAF.

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 LEAF.

Handling
The Dodge Challenger has a larger turning radius than the Nissan LEAF, making it slightly 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 LEAF. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Challenger and the Nissan LEAF.

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