2014 Dodge Viper SRT Comfort & Quality

6.0
Comfort & Quality
Comfort has never been a priority for Viper owners. This is a car that chooses to sacrifice some creature comforts in the name of design and performance. But, until the latest generation, there was good argument for a better balance between these countervailing concerns.

That's the case no longer. The cabin of the 2014 SRT Viper is well-designed, well-upholstered, and quite comfortable, considering the Viper's rather hardcore focus on performance. The new seats look like they're straight out of a Ferrari (because they're made by the same company), the new materials are universally upgraded, and the design is modern, if still a bit minimalist. The massive touchscreen interface in the center stack looks and feels as high-tech as it is high-res.

In GTS models, the luxury factor can be increased significantly, with Nappa leather and carbon fiber accents available. Whichever trim line you choose, however, the Viper's cabin is, ultimately, a sports car cabin: small, cocoon-like, and low to the ground. There's a fair bit of road, wind and engine noise, even at lower speeds; it becomes a roar at highway pace.

While a vast improvement over past Vipers, the 2014's interior is still loud and compact.

Storage space around the cabin is limited, though there are several small bins and cubbies. The trunk is almost sedan-sized at 14 cubic feet.
