Dodge Charger Interior

Reviewers say that the 2014 Dodge Charger has a high-quality interior with attractive styling and nice materials. The Charger also offers user-friendly tech features and spacious front seats, but some reviewers say that the back seat isn’t spacious enough for adult passengers.

  • "You might expect the brash-looking Charger to have a cheap interior, but that's decidedly not the case. Dodge uses much better materials now than it did in the first-generation Charger, and the result is a surprisingly upscale environment." -- Edmunds
  • "A glance at the modest window sticker will not prepare you for the niceness of the interior. There are soft-touch surfaces, quality materials, attractive colors, appealing instrumentation, and it's all done with an appreciable level of fit and finish." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "We noticed a few semi-cheap-looking plastics here and there, but nothing drastic." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

Seating 

The 2014 Charger seats five and comes with cloth upholstery and a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Options include leather upholstery, 12-way power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated front seats and heated rear seats. Test drivers say that the Charger’s front seats are spacious and supportive, though some caution that the available sunroof diminishes headroom. Most critics agree that the rear seats lack adequate headroom because of the Charger’s sloping roofline.

  • "The well-bolstered front seats and thick-rimmed steering wheel hold you in place and give a nice place to hold on, and the back seat is just fine for two adults, although the sloping roofline might cut headroom for taller folks." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The Charger's imposing dimensions provide every passenger with a luxurious amount of space, though the car's rakish rear roof line can restrict headroom for taller backseat occupants. Also keep in mind that compared to front-wheel-drive full-size sedans, the Dodge has less available legroom in the rear center seating position due to intrusion from the transmission tunnel." -- Edmunds
  • "Spacious, as you'd expect a large car to be, though tall drivers will want to be cautious of ordering the optional sunroof as its housing cuts into headroom." -- Consumer Guide (2013)

Interior Features

The 2014 Dodge Charger comes standard with a six-speaker stereo, an auxiliary jack, a USB port and Dodge’s Uconnect infotainment system with a 4.3-inch touch-screen display. Options include a sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated and cooled cup holders, navigation, a backup camera, forward collision warning, blind spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, satellite radio, two upgraded audio systems and an upgraded Uconnect infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touch-screen display.

Reviewers say the top-shelf Uconnect infotainment system is easy to use, and that it has a beautiful, large touch-screen display. Still, one critic thinks that Uconnect makes it difficult to adjust some climate settings.

  • "Another highlight is the 8.4-inch touchscreen interface, which features user-friendly virtual buttons, an intuitive menu structure and crisp, colorful graphics." -- Edmunds
  • "The central touchscreen absorbs most audio and some climate controls. It works fine for the audio, but some of climate adjustments are a bit awkward." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
  • "The UConnect radio features an enormous 8.4-inch touch screen with navigation supplied by Garmin. A simple and intuitive interface plus voice-activated controls for the phone, radio and Sirius Travel Link make this one of the best factory-navigation systems we've tested." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013)

Cargo

The Charger has a 16.5 cubic-foot trunk, which is a decent amount of space for an affordable large car. Still, rivals such as the Ford Taurus have more room for cargo. One critic writes that the trunk lid opens too high for shorter people to reach, and another test driver says that the Charger’s small trunk opening may make it difficult to load larger items.

  • "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
  • "Charger's trunk is usefully sized and shaped, but a relatively small opening complicates loading bulky objects." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
  • "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)
