2014 Dodge Charger vs. 2014 Acura TL Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Charger than the Acura TL. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Charger and the Acura TL in the front seats.

Convenience
The Acura TL requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Dodge Charger, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Charger will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Acura TL. 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 Charger is much higher than that for the Acura TL.

Dimensions
The Dodge Charger is a little wider than the Acura TL, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Dodge Charger, which is slightly longer than the Acura TL.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Charger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Acura TL.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Charger is somewhat more powerful than the Acura TL.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Charger and the Acura TL. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Dodge Charger will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Acura TL.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Charger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Acura TL.
