Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 430 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Dodge Challenger with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW 430, drivers may find the Dodge Challenger a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The BMW 430 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Dodge Challenger, 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 BMW 430 is somewhat more expensive than the Dodge Challenger.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 430 is much slimmer than the Dodge Challenger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 430, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Challenger.

Handling
The BMW 430 has about the same turning radius as the Dodge Challenger, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 430 is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Challenger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The BMW 430 has much less torque than the Dodge Challenger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
The BMW 430 has less seating than the Dodge Challenger, making the Dodge Challenger the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 430 than that of the Dodge Challenger.
