2021 BMW 4-Series vs. 2021 Dodge Challenger Hellcat

 

For 2021, the BMW 4-Series has a new front grille that enhances its sporty look. With a roomy interior and lots of luxury features, this is a car that will turn heads anywhere it goes. The sporty nature of the 2021 4-Series extends to ride quality as well. It is fast, comfortable, and handles superbly.

The 2021 Dodge Challenger Hellcat is still the large muscle car that we know from previous models. Dodge offers the 2021 Hellcat in numerous variants, the idea being to cater to as many tastes as possible. The problem with this approach is that it makes the 2021 Hellcat a jack of all trades but it is hard to find a single thing that stands out about the Hellcat.

Design & Style

When it comes to styling, the 2021 BMW 4-Series looks sharper than ever. The cabin is roomy and one can fit a number of luggage cases in the trunk with ease. BMW has also upgraded the instrument panel. The dashboard looks more refined and is easier to use. All controls are intuitively placed to ensure that everything is easily within reach.

While the 2021 Hellcat is instantly recognizable due to its iconic exterior design, the interior is another story. The cabin build is not outstanding and is very much inferior to that of the 2021 BMW 4-Series. Given that this is a car that costs more than 60,000 dollars, one feels that Dodge should have given the cabin a more premium feel.

Technology & Safety

When it comes to technology, you can expect standard features such as an 8.8-inch infotainment display in the 2021 4-Series. Powered by BMW’s iDrive software, the system is easy to use and very intuitive. It also features crisp graphics and integrates onboard navigation as standard.

When it comes to tech features, the 2021 Hellcat comes with standard navigation as well as an 8.0 infotainment display. Just like the cabin build, the graphics in the infotainment display are not clear and the system can be sluggish at times. This would not be a problem if the 2021 Hellcat was not so highly-priced.

Performance

The 2021 BMW 4-Series is powered by a 2-liter turbocharged engine that turns out about 255 horsepower. This translates to speed and power that makes every ride in the 2021 4-Series a thrill. The engine is managed by an 8-speed automatic transmission that delivers a smooth ride.

Engine power is one of the few things that the 2021 Hellcat has in spadefuls. The engine in the base model turns out an impressive 700 hp which makes the Hellcat very quick. Higher trims turn out as much as 800 hp, allowing the 2021 Hellcat to move from zero to sixty in 3 seconds.

The Bottom Line

Discerning drivers today shop for vehicles that are all-rounded and yet fun to drive. While the Hellcat comes with powerful engines, it is not a very practical car. The 2021 BMW 4-Series delivers a thrilling ride while at the same time allowing you to use it as an everyday vehicle. This makes the BMW 4-Series the clear winner in this comparison.
