To the OP,
I was actually thinking a while ago between a Mustang and the Challenger. Obviously, the Challenger (SXT) won out. Unlike many on here (sincerely no offense given), I'm 26 and don't have the "rainy day funds" of just whimsically being able to get an SRT with whatever options I please. This is my daily driver and with over 70 miles per day, I need the 27ish MPG and in no way was going to get a Prius, haha.
The one thing that I absolutely love, and still want, about the Mustang is of course the exhaust - even stock it sounds fantastic! I was debating for the next car/version between the 5.0 Mustang and the RT Challenger. The BIGGEST selling point, to me, is the absolutely sexy overall look of the Challenger. Albeit the Mustang has many advantages: it's less expensive, has more power, sometimes better gas mileage, more accessories or options to upgrade and sound is second to none in the Mustang, but even now when I walk into a crowded parking lot, I look at that beautiful black Challenger and just have to smile. It's definitely more of a rarity to see it on the road (more of a head-turner). It's quite comfortable, has more room than the Mustang, can still seat four comfortably (it's just getting the back two inside that sucks), and it still handles just fine if you're looking for a realistic car vehicle. The retro look sells this car like no other. Not everyone can fully appreciate it, and to each their own, but for those that want something that stands out and makes a statement, it's the Challenger all the way.
To me, it's like my previous Jeep Wrangler. There are often times many disadvantages to it, but there's always that little something that makes you absolutely love it and never want to get rid of it.
