2020 Dodge Challenger Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 8.7

The 2020 Dodge Challenger doesn't have the most stylish interior in the sports car class, but it's well-built, with plenty of quality materials. This is the most spacious sports car on the market, boasting two rows of comfortable, adult-friendly seats. The trunk is huge, and an easy-to-use infotainment system headlines the features list.

  • The Challenger's interior certainly isn't as characterful and flamboyant as its exterior would suggest. The Mustang and Camaro are more interesting and distinctive inside. Still, there are some interesting design flourishes that spruce things up, from the base trim's standard houndstooth cloth to the two-tone leather choices available as options." -- Autoblog
  • "There are no squeaks or rattles to speak of. The upper door panels on our test car did shake, as if loose, when we closed the doors, but this is a minor quibble with what otherwise appears to be a well-built automobile for the price." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "Inside, the … Challenger is pleasant, comfortable and functional. In the center of the instrument panel is the touch screen that we've liked in other Dodge and Chrysler vehicles. The retro-style gauges look fantastic, and there's a large driver-information screen nestled between the tach and speedometer." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)

Seating

The Challenger seats five and comes standard with cloth upholstery and a power-adjustable driver's seat. Premium leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel are available. You can order some Challengers without the rear seat.

There's really no comparison between the Challenger and other sports coupes. This Dodge is gigantic by two-door-car standards, and it's one of the few sports cars with relatively adult-friendly rear seats (some sports cars don't even have rear seats). The front seats are great too, providing plenty of comfort and support.

The back seat has three complete sets of LATCH connections for securing child safety seats. The three tether anchors are all easy to locate, but the lower anchors are deeply recessed in the seat cushions. It's especially difficult to attach a car seat to the lower anchors in the middle seat.

  • "For a performance coupe, the Challenger is enormous. … While that size is definitely a detriment to the Challenger's handling and straight-line performance, it's a boon for interior space and everyday functionality. Unlike in the Mustang and Camaro, actual adults can fit comfortably in the Challenger's back seat, while its 16.2-cubic-foot trunk would be big for a midsize sedan." -- Autoblog
  • "The Challenger has a lot of front legroom and shoulder room. Headroom is slightly compromised by the optional sunroof, though most 6-footers will still fit. The rear seat isn't quite made for all sizes, but it is far bigger than those of competitors and offers three seats versus two." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "Its interior offers comfortable seating … and a surprisingly quiet and refined ride." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)

Interior Features

Standard features in the Challenger include dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, and the Uconnect 4 infotainment system with a 7-inch touch screen, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, two USB ports, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

Available features include a sunroof, an 8.4-inch touch screen, a six- or nine-speaker Alpine audio system, an 18-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, satellite radio, and navigation.

Available active safety features include adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and forward collision warning.

The Uconnect infotainment system is regarded as one of the best on the market. It features an intuitive interface, and the large touch screen is easy to see and read.

  • "A 7-inch touchscreen is standard, but all trim levels have an 8.4-inch version available as an option or standard. Both are among the easiest to use in the industry, and we prefer the 8.4-inch unit in particular to what's offered by the Camaro and Mustang. Heck, the Ford doesn't even come standard with a touchscreen, let alone the Apple CarPlay and Android Auto that are included on every Challenger." -- Autoblog
  • "Uconnect has been one of the most user-friendly systems on the market for a long time and it remains so, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Quick smartphone connection, easy-to-understand controls, and simple command structures make for easy distraction-free driving." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "We especially like the 7-in driver-configurable information display in the gauge cluster; it gives the Challenger a contemporary edge." -- Autotrader (2019)

Cargo

The Challenger provides 16.2 cubic feet of trunk space. That's an outstanding total for the class; most sporty coupes only offer around half that space. Additionally, the Challenger's rear seats can fold down, giving you more flexibility when hauling larger items. Loading heavy items can be awkward, however, because of the trunk's high liftover height.

  • "The trunk opening is large, and its capacity blows the class away with 16.2 cubic feet, on par with space in a midsize sedan. The rear seatbacks fold in a 60/40-split configuration to expand the Challenger's space even further." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "The trunk is enormous too, at 16.2 cu ft., another sedan-grade achievement." -- Autotrader (2019)
  • … the trunk is actually enormous, albeit with a high liftover." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
