The 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is not only a serious performance car, but is also more practical and comfortable than one might expect in this segment.

Chrysler's SRT (short for "Street and Racing Technology") performance division is known for adorning its interiors with suede, leather, and a special "carbon-fiber weave." The shifter, door pulls, and steering wheel are wrapped with this material, and Motor Trend says, "This stuff looks and feels great." TheCarConnection.com found that the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 is widely praised for the high quality of the materials used in its interior, although ConsumerGuide is less impressed than most, calling these materials "not cheap looking, but certainly not special, either."

The seats in the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8 are highly regarded by most, including ConsumerGuide, which says, "The aggressively bolstered [front] seats provide long-trip comfort" and "Compared to the similar-mission Ford Mustang, Challenger's rear-seat accommodations are palatial." In fact, the rear seat is designed to properly accommodate three passengers instead of only two and, as Edmunds reports, "features a fold-down armrest and a [60/40] split/folding back that opens up to the 16.2-cubic-foot trunk." The trunk is also larger than in the Mustang.

Unlike in sport coupes of yore, this Challenger's rear windows don't go down, and there's a B-pillar, which creates a blind spot. Visibility and access to the rear are not among the 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8's strong points, but as Motor Trend writes, this is "not uncommon in any coupe."

Conclusion

The 2008 Dodge Challenger has a nicely finished interior with front seats that are supportive and comfortable.

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.
