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 Charger than the INFINITI Q50. The INFINITI Q50 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Charger.

Convenience
With the INFINITI Q50 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Dodge Charger, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Dodge Charger will have less of an impact on your bank account than the INFINITI Q50. 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 Charger is much higher than that for the INFINITI Q50.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Charger is much wider than the INFINITI Q50, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Dodge Charger, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the INFINITI Q50.

Handling
The Dodge Charger has a larger turning radius than the INFINITI Q50, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Dodge Charger has a much more powerful engine than the INFINITI Q50. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Charger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the INFINITI Q50.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Dodge Charger and the INFINITI Q50.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Charger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the INFINITI Q50.
