Dodge Charger Interior
Automotive journalists say the 2015 Dodge Charger has made significant strides with its interior, but that compared with other cars in the class, it is still not quite up to par. Base models are outfitted with cheap materials, according to some auto writers, and rivals have higher-quality interiors overall. A few auto writers disagree, however, saying the Charger’s interior has soft-touch surfaces and a multi-functional Uconnect infotainment system.
- "As with other cars in the full-size class, the Charger offers plenty of interior space and cargo room; that's expected. What might not be is the number of luxury-league features available such as heated and ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, and power-adjustable pedals." -- Consumer Guide
- "And although this year's interior makeover greatly improved the appearance of the Charger's interior, you'll find more refinement and better fit and finish from several other affordable full-size sedans." -- Edmunds
- "In these cheaper models, which will comprise a vast majority of Charger sales, the seats are wide and covered in rental-grade fabrics, and the aluminum trim looks duller, but the dashboard will pass the soft-touch knock-knock test, and the graphics on the info screens and dash are sufficiently upscale." -- Yahoo Autos
- "Inside, Chrysler continues to earn forgiveness after decades of crap-plastic interiors. Drivers can stroke softly padded surfaces, a range of UConnect infotainment touchscreens, and a faux-aluminum IP bezel, while viewing a standard 7-inch driver's display." -- Automobile Magazine
The 2015 Dodge Charger has five seats and comes standard with cloth upholstery and a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Leather upholstery, 12-way power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and a heated steering wheel are available.
Test drivers write that the Charger’s front and rear seats are spacious and offer plenty of legroom. They note, however, that the seats are a bit soft to be comfortable for long drives. Some reviewers say the ride quality in the Charger is excellent and that the cabin is nearly silent at speed. The Charger has poor visibility to the sides and the rear, according to critics.
- "Seats are well-bolstered, but the cushions are too squishy for long-distance comfort -- the most glaring flaw of many Chargers we drove." -- Automobile Magazine
- "Sliding behind the new three-spoke wheel reveals the same spacious interior dimensions that sizable drivers have come to know and love." -- Car and Driver
- "Visibility isn't the best. Front and side pillars are quite thick, as are the rear pillars, though the last aren't as much of a problem on models with a rearview camera." -- Consumer Guide
- "Ride quality isn't always a muscle car strength, but the Charger R/T provides a sporting ride that is remarkably comfortable. The Charger R/T's cabin also proved far quieter than we expected, with virtually all wind and road noise kept at bay." -- Left Lane News
- "Rear-seat legroom in the 2015 Charger is as open as an Iowa farm; even with tall front-seaters, those in the back won't mind a bit.” -- Edmunds
The 2015 Dodge Charger comes standard with a USB port, a six-speaker stereo, an auxiliary jack and Dodge’s Uconnect infotainment system with a 5.0-inch touch-screen display. Available features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, a sunroof, navigation, satellite radio, forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, upgraded audio systems and an upgraded Uconnect infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touch-screen display.
Auto writers report that the 2015 Charger is loaded with a wide array of features. They say the upgraded Uconnect infotainment system is a pleasure to use, but that the 5.0-inch base display is small for the large center stack. A few critics think some touch-screen selections are a little difficult to reach, and that some of the fonts on the dashboard can be tough to read.
- "Although the volume and tuning knobs for the audio system are easy to reach, the touchscreen that contains the station-select buttons is a bit of a stretch. The same goes for the mode ‘switches’ for the climate-control system, which are also on the touchscreen, though the rotary fan-speed knob and less-convenient repetitive-step temperature controls are handy." -- Consumer Guide
- "Dodge keeps doing great things with its instruments, and the new digital display for the gauge cluster is concise and highly visible, though we still found some of the fonts a little muddy in strong sunlight. You can call up all manner of information in the digital cluster, while the center dash, smoothed and restyled, is dominated by the screen of the UConnect system. The 8.4-inch top-of-the-line touchscreen is a delight, although the 5-inch screen standard in lower trims seems a little lost in the acreage of the Charger's dash. …" -- Edmunds
- "Dodge is deftly playing up its muscle car heritage inside, with tunneled primary instrument dials bracketing a slick new seven-inch information display for the driver, with Dodge's highly acclaimed 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment screen to the right, all encompassed by a large aluminum bezel." -- Yahoo Autos
The 2015 Dodge Charger has 16.5 cubic feet of cargo space, which is typical for the class. Reviewers say the Charger’s trunk lid rests too high when open, and can be difficult for shorter people to reach. They add, however, that the cargo capacity is aided by standard split-folding rear seats, as well as an abundance of interior storage spaces.
- "In all models, interior storage is impressive, with a smallish 2-tiered glovebox, a couple of console bins, 2 covered cupholders, a large 2-tier console box, and map pockets with cupholders in the doors." -- Consumer Guide
- "In addition, the trunk's … volume is merely adequate for a large sedan, though 60/40-split-folding rear seatbacks are standard for occasions when you need more room." -- Edmunds (2014)
- "Trunk lid lifts too high for less-tall users to easily reach and close. And the trunk, while adequate, is space-stingy by full-size car standards." -- USA Today (2012)
