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 Lexus IS 350. The Lexus IS 350 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Dodge Charger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Charger as you will with the Lexus IS 350, 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). Whether you pick the Dodge Charger or the Lexus IS 350, it's going to cost you about the same.

Since the Dodge Charger is much wider than the Lexus IS 350, 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 Lexus IS 350.
