Dodge Charger vs. Ford Mustang: Interior Space

While it’s not typically the make or break aspect muscle car enthusiasts are focusing on in a new model, the room in a vehicle’s interior is still important, as well as yet another area in which the Dodge Charger comes out ahead against its competition:

  • 2019 Dodge Charger: This four-door muscle car comes standard with seating for five passengers, as well as 105 cubic feet of interior room.
  • 2019 Ford Mustang: The two-door Mustang is a bit smaller, only allowing for four passengers and 82.8 cubic feet of interior room.

On top of having more available seats and room for passengers, the Charger also comes with a larger amount of cargo space with 16.1 cubic feet to just 13.5 cubic feet in the Mustang.
