<a href="https://willowbrookchrysler.ca/inventory?newUsed=New#/?&orderBy=1&t=0&filter=[New%2CDodge%2CCharger%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/April_2021/2021_Dodge_Charger_SXT.png"alt="Front and side view of red 2021 Dodge Charger SXT"/></a>The Dodge Charger SXT and Genesis G70 are performance sedans that boast 300 and 252 horsepower, respectively. These vehicles are certainly fun to drive compared to 4-cylinder family models, but are they practical for daily use? Let’s take a closer look.

Dodge Charger SXT

Trunk Space: 467 L
Drive Type: FWD or AWD
Passenger Volume: 2,965 L
Rear Legroom: 1,018 mm

Genesis G70
Trunk Space: 371 L
Drive Type: AWD
Passenger Volume: 2,939 L
Rear Legroom: 985 mm

Thanks to its significantly larger trunk and a more spacious back seat, the 2021 Charger SXT stands out in this comparison.

For performance-oriented cars like the 2021 Dodge Charger and 2021 Ford Mustang, engine power and torque are important factors. How do these two fare in these categories? 

2021 Dodge Charger

Base Engine
: 3.6L V6
Upgrade: 5.7L HEMI V8
Largest Engine: 6.2L Supercharged H/O V8
Max Horsepower: 797
Max Torque: 707 lb.-ft

2021 Ford Mustang

Base Engine
: 2.3L Turbo I-4
Upgrade: 5.2L V8
Largest Engine: 5.2L Supercharged V8
Max Horsepower: 760 
Max Torque: 625 lb.-ft

With its 6.2L Supercharged High-Output SRT Hellcat Redeye V8, the 2021 Charger boasts the most powerful engine overall in this comparison. It also excels in other areas. For example, while both vehicles come with performance-oriented RWD, only the Dodge offers an AWD option, which is ideal for wintertime driving in Canada.

All that power is also easier to control in the Hellcat thanks to its knockback mitigation feature. Plus, it boasts electric steering assistance so every bit of the energy from the engine can make it to the wheels during any drive, while the severe-duty cooling with oil and after-run chilling system keeps the entire thing purring smoothly.

Both have base V6 engines, but only one offers enhanced powertrain options. Here is a closer look under the hoods of these two four-door vehicles. 

Dodge Charger

Base Engine
: 3.6L V6
Base HP: 300
Transmission: 8-speed auto
Upgrade: 5.7L V8
Performance Options: 6.2L Supercharged SRT Hellcat
Max Horsepower: 797 

Nissan Maxima

Base Engine
: 3.5L V6
Base HP: 300
Transmission: CVT
Upgrade: None
Performance Options: None

Both base trims, the Maxima S and Charger SXT, have V6 engines that provide 300 hp. However, the Dodge offers several more powerful options, including a 5.7L V8 HEMI and 6.2L supercharged, high-output SRT Hellcat, which brings a race-track-worthy 797 hp. 

The Dodge Charger also features an 8-speed automatic transmission and available AWD. Both of these are missing from the Maxima’s list of options. 

But no matter which engine you choose, the Charger will keep every ride sure-footed using its stability control with anti-roll system. Likewise, the traction management feature allows the wheels to stay firmly tied to the ground while ABS brakes provide ample stopping power.
