Which Dodge Muscle Car Should You Buy?

We've all been there. You're at the dealer and you've got two cars in front of you. One is a sports coupe – sexy, powerful, not particularly practical. The other is a sedan with room for five, doors for each row of seats, and a golf-bag-friendly trunk. Which should you choose: practical and spacious or cool and quick?

Well, that choice isn't so cut-and-dry in this head-to-head comparison. The Dodge Challenger isn't a tiny, hard-edged sports coupe like the Subaru BRZ. It's actually pretty roomy and comfortable on the road. The Dodge Charger isn't a sedate family hauler like the Toyota Avalon. It's a four-door muscle car with athletic handling and big available power – up to 707 horsepower.

We've evaluated the Challenger and the Charger based on nine categories, ranging from practical, like trunk space, to performance-oriented, like the acceleration. Whoever wins the most categories takes the prize.

How will these class outliers stack up when they go head-to-head? More importantly, which one should you buy when you're on the lot at your local Dodge dealer? Read on to find out.
