Expert Quotes:

Unlike the car it replaces, the cockpit is thoughtfully padded in the right places, features high-quality stitching where it can be seen and felt, and has a dashboard that is highly legible and functional with a configurable digital instrument cluster.
Edmunds

The car has always had a functional but fairly rudimentary dashboard and instrument panel, but now, sliding into the excellent new leather-clad seats, the Viper finally looks and feels like a luxury sports car.
Road & Track

The 2013 Viper interior makes a Corvette look like a rental car, reveals a Porsche to be an ergonomic nightmare, and shows up a Lamborghini as a gimmicky caricature.
Automobile Magazine

Chief among the improvements is the handsomely sculptured stitched-leather interior, with a modern TFT display replacing the old, wretched one.
Wall Street Journal

Everything is upscale, and even the hard surfaces receive triple-paint-finished Gun Metal appliqués
Autoblog

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.

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.

Conclusion

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

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.
