No, your eyes aren't deceiving you. The refreshed Avenger looks much the same as the current 2010 edition, but get out the magnifying glass and you'll notice the differences.
The Avenger's overall shape is mostly the same from the front, side, and especially the back.
cleaner looking rear end with “ring of fire” taillights
Vents, center console, dash, and door panels are modernly styled.
What we're relatively sure of is that, especially after a mild retouch a couple of years ago, the Avenger's exterior looks attractive and stands out. It's a smaller take on the design of the large Charger sedan, and it has a lock on brand unity that few small cars carry over from their successful big siblings.
The big crosshair grille instantly identitfies it as a Dodge, but it's the upkick at the rear fenders that really connect it to the Charger—and give it just a hint of muscle. Inside, Dodge gave the cabin appointments a little more polish a couple of years ago, with some better detailing and soft-touch materials around the dash, but the lower half of the dash was mostly left untouched. And in general, the look neither has the premium look of the Charger or even the detailed, sporty look of the new Dart cabin.
The 2013 Dodge Avenger creates interest by aping the larger Charger sedan from the outside, but its interior feels less inspired.
