The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Dodge Charger looks strikingly different, ditching the retro for sleek modernity, but its V-6 and V-8 engines and rear-wheel-drive chassis make it a family sedan with a muscle-car heartbeat. The 2014 Nissan Maxima isn't the enthusiast car it claims to be, but it is a more luxurious, more stylish option than many of its competitors.
