Space isn't the issue in the Avenger--it's the quality of the seats and trim that's the problem.

Dodge engineers got the memo and completely overhauled the D-platform's suspension to provide a comfortable, athletic, and fun ride

While the 2014 Avenger may look smaller than many of the other midsize sedans on the market, it's actually about the same size as an Optima or Sonata.

Ride quality is for the most part quite good in the 2014 Avenger; four-cylinder models tend to ride better of the two, while V-6 models are a bit pitchier, yet quiet and refined in highway cruising.

But the Avenger's tall shoulders and high beltline--designed to mimic those of the larger Charger to some degree--definitely have their cost, making the back seat more of a Dramamine zone than the back seat in sedans with a taller, airier greenhouse, like a Sonata. Dark trim most everywhere inside save for the upholstery enhances the more confining feel.

With flat, rather wide front seats, as well as plenty of headroom and legroom, there's space for a wide range of body type, but a lack of side support. Back seats are a bit flat, but contoured like those of most other mid-sizers, with enough legroom for adults and just enough headroom--although you might need to bow your head for entry and exit.

The Avenger's trunk is on the small side of the scale, but we'd guess it to be large enough for most family needs.


Space isn't the issue in the Avenger--it's the quality of the seats and trim that's the problem.

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.
