Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Dodge Challenger than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 and the Dodge Challenger in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 as you will with the Dodge Challenger, 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). The Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Dodge Challenger, 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 Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Dodge Challenger.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 is much slimmer than the Dodge Challenger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Dodge Challenger.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Dodge Challenger.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 has a larger turning radius than the Dodge Challenger, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 is significantly less powerful than the Dodge Challenger. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 has less seating than the Dodge Challenger, making the Dodge Challenger the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.
