2011 Dodge Avenger Comfort & Quality

7.0
On Comfort & Quality
Nearly identical to the Chrysler 200 in raw cubic feet and the way it's arranged, the 2011 Dodge Avenger has roughly the same interior space found in the 2011 Hyundai Sonata, or the latest Ford Fusion and Subaru Legacy, some of TheCarConnection's most highly rated four-doors. Head room and leg room are equal to or better than most, though the Avenger's trunk is on the small side of the scale.

The Avenger suffers some for the mini-Charger style—especially in the back seat. While the Sonata's tall, airy greenhouse lets in plenty of light, the Avenger's tall shoulders and low roofline—and dark trim most everywhere inside save for the upholstery—feels more confining, even though its flat but wide front seats have enough acreage for the target market. Tucking into the back seats is a little trickier than in some competitors because of the body structure's higher sills and lower roof cutouts (disguised very well by tall door skins).

Ride quality is actually quite good. The old Avenger had a reputation for a thrumming, pitchy ride. New tires, relocated suspension pieces, and better shocks shear off the sharp edges.

The 2011 Dodge Avenger has been modestly improved in comfort, but its passenger and cargo space still suffer for the sake of styling.
