Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Charger than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, drivers may find the Dodge Charger a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 228 Gran Coupe as you will with the Dodge Charger, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 228 Gran Coupe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Dodge Charger. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 228 Gran Coupe carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Charger.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 228 Gran Coupe is much slimmer than the Dodge Charger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Charger.

Drivetrain
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe has much less torque than the Dodge Charger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe has about the same turning radius as the Dodge Charger, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 228 Gran Coupe is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Charger. 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 BMW 228 Gran Coupe and the Dodge Charger. The BMW 228 Gran Coupe has significantly less cargo room than the Dodge Charger, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 228 Gran Coupe than that of the Dodge Charger.
