Comparison Review

Comfort
The Dodge Challenger offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Toyota Prius with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Dodge Challenger and the Toyota Prius in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Toyota Prius you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Dodge Challenger, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Prius, 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 Prius.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Challenger is much wider than the Toyota Prius, 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 Prius.

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 Prius.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Challenger has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Prius. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Challenger and the Toyota Prius.

Warranty
The Dodge Challenger comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Prius.
