2009 Chrysler Aspen Interior
This interior review was created when the car was new. Some links may no longer point to an active page.
The Chrysler Aspen can seat up to eight passengers, though most reviewers say that not all of them will be comfortable. Most reviewers say the cabin is simply middle-of-the-road: not good enough or bad enough to stand out from competitors.
- "With the same basic layout as the Durango, the Aspen's cabin has the same strengths and weaknesses." -- Edmunds
Reviewers find that the first row of the Aspen offers comfort for both the driver and front passenger, provided the driver isn't too small. Interestingly enough, reviewers say the middle row suffers from lack of space and the optional third row that offers the most room in this vehicle.
- "Front seats are comfortably wide, though the cushioning felt a bit firm for my taste. A standard eight-way power driver's seat offers plenty of travel in all directions. The steering wheel tilts but doesn't telescope; its fixed position, extended quite far from the dashboard, may prove too close to shorter drivers." -- Cars.com
- "Getting in or out of the third row doesn't demand the nimbleness of a gymnast, and those consigned to the third row won't feel slighted." -- Kelley Blue Book
Standard interior features include a power sunroof, power-adjustable pedals, remote start system, GPS, steering wheel controls, an AM/FM/CD six-disc CD stereo with a navigation system, and SIRIUS satellite radio. For the most part, reviewers found switches and buttons adequate. Satellite TV is also available for rear-seat passengers.
- "The instruments and controls are easy to see and use, though the manual air conditioning had an outdated blue-to-red slider -- especially inconvenient if you're trying to adjust the temperature over a bumpy road." -- Cars.com
With the maximum eight passengers on board, cargo capacity in the 2009 Chrysler Aspen is 20 cubic feet. Both third- and second-row seats fold flat, and storage space increases to 68.4 cubic feet and 102.4 cubic feet, respectively.
- "Lift-over height in back is low, and the opening is usefully wide, but those over six feet tall will need to duck under the liftgate door when loading luggage or lumber."-- Kelley Blue Book
