Indian Head and Melville drivers can expect spirited performance and aggressive styling from both the 2016 Dodge Dart and the 2016 Dodge Charger. That said, you’ll still have to choose between them eventually, so take a look through our quick comparison if you need to make your mind up.

Powertrains

The 2016 Dodge Charger is the quickest, fastest, and most powerful sedan in the world – well, we think so. And its thanks to the addition of the available 6.2L supercharged HEMI SRT Hellcat V8 engine, which can put up to 707 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque at your disposal and achieve a top track speed of 328 km/h. Even entry-level models receive top-range power from a 300 hp, 264 lb-ft of torque 3.6L Pentastar VVT V6. The 2016 Dodge Dart is an agile performer, but it can’t match the Charger in terms of pure power. Entry-level models receive a 160 hp 2.0L TigerShark, with a 184 2.4L variant available. However, the Dart’s fuel-sipping powertrains make it a little more practical; you’ll achieve up to 8.4 L/100km in the city and 5.9 on the highway. The Charger’s Pentastar makes 12.4 and 7.7, while the SRT is rated at 17.6 L/100 km in the city and 10.7 on the highway.

Interior

Dodge have made a name for themselves by delivering bold styling and luxurious comfort across every model, and you can expect exactly that from both the 2016 Dart and the 2016 Charger. Each one offers leather-trimmed seats and ambient lighting, plus a distinctive Floating Island Bezel in the Dart. Of course, the Charger is a much larger beast, with up to 2965L of passenger space and 467L of cargo space vs just 2,752L and 371L in the Dart. If you’re going to be regularly accommodating a full complement of full-grown adults, the Charger might just make a better choice.

Features

The 2016 Dodge Dart and the 2016 Dodge Charger share a wide array of top of the line standard and available features, including:

  • Largest-In-Class 8.4-Inch Touchscreen: Control everything from climate settings to available GPS navigation through easy-to-use icons.
  • Park-Sense Rear Park Assist System: 10 advanced ultrasonic sensors detect obstructions and then warn you when you get too close for comfort.

However, Dodge have kept a few technologies back for use in the ferocious Charger, including:

  • Performance Pages: View lap times and numerous further pieces of performance data at will in order to improve and track your drive.
  • Segment-Exclusive Beats Audio System: Provides a 12-channel amplifier with 552 watts of power, 10 speakers, and an 8-inch subwoofer for cutting-edge audio.
