2012 Dodge Charger Comfort & Quality

8.0
Comfort & Quality

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.

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

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.
