The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
With rear-wheel drive and available V-8 power, the 2016 Dodge Charger is a family sedan with a muscle-car heartbeat. The 2016 Nissan Maxima locks in an arresting shape and charming front-drive road manners, in its quest to distance itself from the Altima.
