Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW M4 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Dodge Challenger with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M4 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 M4 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 M4 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Dodge Challenger, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 M4 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Challenger.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M4 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 M4, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Challenger.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW M4 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Dodge Challenger.

Handling
The BMW M4 has a larger turning radius than the Dodge Challenger, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW M4 has less horsepower than the Dodge Challenger, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The BMW M4 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 M4 than that of the Dodge Challenger.
