Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Challenger than the Ford Mustang. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Challenger and the Ford Mustang in the front seats.

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 Dodge Challenger is somewhat more expensive than the Ford Mustang.

Dimensions
The Dodge Challenger is about the same width as the Ford Mustang. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Dodge Challenger, which is slightly longer than the Ford Mustang.

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

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

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Dodge Challenger and the Ford Mustang do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Utility
The Dodge Challenger offers greater seating capacity than the Ford Mustang, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.
