How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

Shares its basic design with the Sebring from Dodge's parent company Chrysler

It isn't dippy; it's sharp and aggressive.

The 2010 Dodge Avenger is closely related to the Chrysler Sebring, but its styling leaves the impression of a scaled-down Dodge Charger, with prominent creases at the back fenders. However, the proportions don't carry the same zing in the front-wheel-drive Avenger.

Reviewers are split on the styling of the 2010 Dodge Avenger, but most agree it stands out from the crowd of usually bland mid-size sedans. Cars.com says "the Avenger's design is its greatest appeal," while reviewers at Edmunds point out that the external differences are few between the SXT and the R/T. All three versions feature styling similar to the Dodge Charger, leading Car and Driver reviewers to christen the Avenger the "Chargerette" and note its "Charger-like stance." MotherProof reviewers also love this 2010 Dodge, claiming that "the Avenger makes a statement. It isn't dippy; it's sharp and aggressive." However, on the negative side, Autoblog comments that the "rear quarter panel is an utter mess of shapes," while Car and Driver feels that it "fails to be either menacing or inviting."

The interior of the Avenger continues the chunky, angular theme that stands apart from the competition, but few experts would claim that it sets any sort of benchmark for styling in this segment. Cars.com laments the use of "hard and glossy plastics and copious amounts of faux metal" throughout the interior, remarking that, "just like the transmission speed count, with each passing year, the interior will seem further and further behind the times." Taking a positive slant, ConsumerGuide mentions that the "controls are mostly handy, though many lack quality feel and movement," and "some functions are not intuitive." Edmunds also finds a bit of redeeming value in the R/T model, which "features white-faced gauges, chrome trim and a two-tone leather-wrapped steering wheel that give a sporty, slightly more upscale feel."


From the outside, the 2010 Dodge Avenger makes a strong design statement, love it or hate it. Inside it's not as successful.
