2014 Toyota Corolla vs. 2014 Dodge Avenger 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 Toyota Corolla than the Dodge Avenger. The Dodge Avenger will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Corolla.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Corolla as you will with the Dodge Avenger, 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). Based on MSRP, the Toyota Corolla is clearly a better financial choice over the Dodge Avenger. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Corolla carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Avenger.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Corolla is much slimmer than the Dodge Avenger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Toyota Corolla, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Avenger.

Drivetrain
The Toyota Corolla has much less torque than the Dodge Avenger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Toyota Corolla is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Avenger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

Warranty
The Toyota Corolla comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Dodge Avenger.
