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 Toyota 86. The Dodge Challenger will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota 86.

Convenience
The Dodge Challenger will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota 86, 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 Dodge Challenger will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Toyota 86, 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 Destination Charge for the Dodge Challenger is much higher than that for the Toyota 86.

Since the Dodge Challenger is much wider than the Toyota 86, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Dodge Challenger, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Toyota 86.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Challenger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota 86.

Handling
The Dodge Challenger has a larger turning radius than the Toyota 86, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
