2018 Dodge Charger vs. 2019 Toyota Avalon Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Dodge Charger than in the Toyota Avalon, due to the Dodge Charger's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon, the Dodge Charger may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Charger as you will with the Toyota Avalon, 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 Toyota Avalon. 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 Toyota Avalon.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Charger is much wider than the Toyota Avalon, 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 Toyota Avalon.

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 Toyota Avalon.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Charger has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Avalon. 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 Toyota Avalon. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Dodge Charger as you will in the Toyota Avalon.

Warranty
The Dodge Charger comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Avalon.
