The 2019 BMW 4 Series is a very attractive luxury vehicle that has received acclaim for its power trains, emergency automatic brakes which are standard and one of the largest infotainment screens in its class. But how does it compare to the 2019 Dodge Charger, a powerhouse famous for its breathtaking acceleration, speed, and efficient engine?
Design & Style
Like the Camaro, the Dodge Charger has a design which is inspired by 1960s muscles cars, and it works well. The wheels are larger than cars produced during that era, but the wild stripes and vibrant colors are retro and cool. Its roof pillars are prominent and thick, as are the fenders. LEDs are used for the taillights and in front a thin grille can be seen, which varies in style depending on the variant. The interior has a dash with soft touch and surfaces which are expertly carved. The metallic matte trim completes the look. The BMW 4 Series is pleasing to the eyes. It has an extended beak with a windshield that has been swept back so it provides a nice view of the horizon. The cabin uses a symmetrical layout where the controls and infotainment are all within reach.
Technology & Safety
The BMW 4 Series is well equipped with an assortment of safety countermeasures. Just a few of these are a camera for the rearview, stability control, protection against rollover and a telematics mechanism which sends out alerts in the event the vehicle is involved in a crash. Within the cabin, passengers will be treated to seats that can be heated and power adjusted, a moon roof, eight inch touchscreens, high quality audio and leather upholstery. The Dodge Charger has many of the same safety features, but leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to its crash tests grades. In fact, it failed two of these tests, although it scored well overall with the NHTSA which gave it a five star rating. It has outstanding rollover protection and is resilient against frontal impacts.
The Dodge Charger can be equipped with a V6 or the more powerful V8. The V6 is 3.6 liter and capable of producing 292 horsepower with 260 pound of torque, while the V8 is 5.7 liter and capable of generating 370 horsepower with 395 pound of torque. The BMW 4 Series comes with a turbo 4 that is 2 liter and capable of producing 248 horsepower with 258 pound of torque, enabling the vehicle to accelerate from zero to sixty in under 6 seconds. Those wanting more can purchase the 440i, which provides 320 horsepower with 330 pound of torque.
The Bottom Line
Both of these vehicles are eye catching, fun to drive and packed with all sorts of creature comforts. But despite the Dodge Charger’s engine power and acceleration, the 4 Series is safer to drive, so the BMW wins.
