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

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Charger as you will with the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Charger is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Dodge Charger will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Charger is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Dodge Charger, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

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 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Handling
The Dodge Charger has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Charger has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. 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 Charger and the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Dodge Charger will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Charger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class.
