2014 Dodge Charger vs. 2014 Volkswagen CC 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 Volkswagen CC. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen CC, the Dodge Charger may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Volkswagen CC you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Dodge Charger, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Whether you pick the Dodge Charger or the Volkswagen CC, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Volkswagen CC.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Charger is much wider than the Volkswagen CC, 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 Volkswagen CC.

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 Volkswagen CC.

Handling
The Dodge Charger has about the same turning radius as the Volkswagen CC, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Charger has a much more powerful engine than the Volkswagen CC. 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 Volkswagen CC. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Dodge Charger will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Volkswagen CC.

Warranty
The Dodge Charger comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen CC.
