Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW M240 than in the Dodge Challenger, due to the BMW M240's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M240 and the Dodge Challenger in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M240 as you will with the Dodge Challenger, 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 BMW M240 is somewhat more expensive than the Dodge Challenger. 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 M240 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Challenger.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M240 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 M240, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Challenger.

Drivetrain
The BMW M240 has much less torque than the Dodge Challenger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW M240 has a smaller turning radius than the Dodge Challenger, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M240 is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Challenger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW M240 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 M240 than that of the Dodge Challenger.
