Expert Quotes:

Put simply, the interior now delivers exactly what the Charger should have offered five years ago.
Automobile Magazine

The Charger's front bucket seats...They're a little too spongy for my tastes, and they didn't do much to keep me in place when cornering quickly

here's more covered storage, and the bins are flocked to keep their contents from rattling.
Motor Trend

better looking materials just about everywhere
Winding Road

Finding a good driving position is easy, and we'd have no qualms about sticking with our tester's standard cloth upholstery.
Edmunds' Inside Line

The emotional styling of the Charger doesn't compromise its utility very much. The roofline's tall, the front seats are wide and lightly bolstered (thick, firm sport seats are offered on HEMI cars), and the doors are cut widely to make the Charger as functional as possible. It meets police-duty standards for tucking in perps, at least, and that's something to remind tall rear-seat passengers of when they squawk about tight head room and the rumble of HEMI exhaust.

Ride quality in V-8 models, and those with larger wheel upgrades, is noticeably harsher than in V-6 models. In those models, it feels quite sophisticated, quiet, and well-damped, but in the R/T or SRT8 it can be a little jittery at times.

Likewise, there's a bit more engine noise in the Hemi cars--that is, if you count the Hemi's throaty rumble to be a 'noise' (we'd call it a soundtrack). But with thicker glass and more soundproofing, road and wind noise are well damped no matter what; interior materials and trims are top-notch, and they fit together well--all to give the 2012 Charger a premium feel inside. 

Conclusion

The 2012 Charger is quite roomy inside, considering the stylish exterior.

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.
