On Features

In most of the other sections of this review, the 2010 Dodge Avenger is panned by critics for one reason or another. But in terms of features, the Avenger offers more innovation and amenities than most other mid-size sedans—including some exclusive and useful features.

On the base 2010 Dodge Avenger SXT, equipment is quite impressive. Edmunds lists the standard features as including "a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, full power accessories, air-conditioning, cruise control, a cooled front storage compartment and a four-speaker audio system with a single-CD player." That cooled front storage compartment, which Dodge christens the Chill Zone, generates a lot of buzz among the automotive press. Automobile Magazine notes that one of the "neat cabin touches [includes] the Chill Zone," while MotherProof says that "this is one of those features that sounds ridiculous on paper, but in real life just charms you."

When it comes to features and options, the 2010 Dodge Avenger emerges as one of the class leaders.

Buyers opting for the top-level Dodge Avenger R/T will get standard "18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, automatic headlights, firmer suspension tuning, single-zone automatic climate control and an auto-dimming rearview mirror," according to Edmunds.

The lengthy options list—including many useful tech-savvy features—also has reviewers raving. Cars.com catalogs some of the other options as a "navigation system [that] has a touch-screen, which is better than an 'advanced' multifunction controller," and "the MyGIG system, which includes Sirius Satellite Radio that can provide the system with real-time traffic information and even choose a route based on current conditions." ConsumerGuide also points out that a "Navigation and Sound Group" for the R/T adds a "Boston Acoustics sound system, hard drive, wireless cell phone link, [and] iPod adapter." The only other major option is a power sunroof, but Cars.com warns that "the optional moonroof required the dome light to be relocated well behind the front seats, leaving the front in darkness and shadows."
