Automobile Magazine




The 2012 Dodge Caliber falls short of a number of fresher small-car models in many ways, but its feature set isn't one of them; the Caliber has a set of options that brings possibilities not always found among budget entries, and several innovative features set it apart. 

Even the base Caliber SE includes keyless entry, air conditioning, power heated mirrors, full power accessories, and cruise control, plus a ChillZone cooled compartment. SXT models add an upgraded suspension; rear disc brakes; larger wheels; a removable, rechargeable flashlight; XM satellite radio; fog lamps; and a split-folding backseat. A sport suspension, Auto Stick, and larger 18-inch wheels come with the SXT Plus package. The options list has been somewhat whittled-down--in what might end up being the Caliber's last model year--but one of the standouts remains an available navigation system with real-time traffic and travel information. Bluetooth (UConnect) is available in much of the model line.

The ChillZone cooled glove box for keeping drinks at the proper temperature was innovative in this class when the Caliber was introduced, and it remains so today.

 

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Dodge Caliber is a well-equipped compact car with a strong list of features and options.

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.
