2015 Dodge Charger vs. 2016 Nissan Maxima 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 Nissan Maxima. The Nissan Maxima will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Charger.

Convenience
The Nissan Maxima 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). The Dodge Charger is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Maxima. 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 Nissan Maxima.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Charger is much wider than the Nissan Maxima, 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 Nissan Maxima.

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 Nissan Maxima.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Charger has a much more powerful engine than the Nissan Maxima. 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 Nissan Maxima. The Dodge Charger has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Nissan Maxima.

Warranty
The Dodge Charger comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Maxima.
