2014 Dodge Charger vs. 2014 Kia Cadenza 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 Kia Cadenza. The Kia Cadenza will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Charger.

Convenience
The Kia Cadenza 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 Kia Cadenza. 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 Kia Cadenza.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Charger is much wider than the Kia Cadenza, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. 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 Kia Cadenza.

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 Kia Cadenza.

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

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Charger and the Kia Cadenza. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Dodge Charger as you will in the Kia Cadenza.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Charger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Cadenza.
