2019 Dodge Challenger Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 8.4

Though the 2019 Dodge Challenger's performance is often the focus of conversations, it’s actually the interior that sets it apart from the muscle-car crowd. Impressive elements include a comfortable cabin with a roomy back seat and a top-notch infotainment system. The Challenger also has a spacious trunk.

  • "The interior is attractive, well-furnished and comfortable. The leather-trimmed seats are supportive." -- 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
  • "Inside, the new 2017 Dodge 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

Though coupes are typically known for having confined cabins, the Challenger contests this stereotype by offering spacious seats all around. The front seats are roomy and comfortable, and the back seats offer more legroom than every other entry in the sports car class.

The Challenger comes standard with five seats, hound's tooth sport-cloth upholstery, a six-way power adjustable driver's seat, and a leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. Upholstery options include performance cloth, a mix of Nappa leather and Alcantara, full Nappa leather, and Laguna leather. Heated and ventilated front seats and a heated steering wheel are also available. You can also order some editions without the rear seat.

The back seat has three complete sets of LATCH child-seat connections. 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 child safety seat to the lower anchors in the middle seat. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Challenger’s LATCH system the second-highest rating of Acceptable for ease of use.

  • "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
  • "Its interior offers comfortable seating … and a surprisingly quiet and refined ride." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "The Challenger's cabin redeems itself in back, where rear occupants will be treated to perhaps the most spacious back seat in any mass-market coupe. There's sedanlike room back there, plain and simple. Other sporty coupes just can't touch it." -- Autotrader (2016)

Interior Features

Dodge's Uconnect infotainment system receives lots of compliments. The menus are logical and easy to navigate through, the screen is large and clear, and the menu bar can be customized with the icons of your choice. A 7-inch touch-screen display is standard, as is Bluetooth, two USB ports, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, voice commands, and six speakers.

Other standard features include dual-zone automatic climate control, a proximity key, push-button start, and a rearview camera. Dodge offers most of its interior upgrades on every trim level, including an uplevel infotainment system that adds an 8.4-inch touch screen, navigation, and satellite radio. You can also add a sunroof, remote start, six- and nine-speaker Alpine sound systems, an 18-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

  • "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
  • "The touch screen in the center is an old friend, enhanced this year with Uconnect 8.4, which brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There's a retro feel that still looks modern, and we like the big driver info center between the main gauges." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "We especially like the 7-in driver-configurable information display in the gauge cluster; it gives the Challenger a contemporary edge." -- Autotrader

Cargo

The Challenger has a 16.2-cubic-foot trunk. This blows the competition away for trunk space, with most sporty coupes offering around half the space. Loading in heavy items can be awkward, though, as the trunk has a 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
  • " … the trunk is actually enormous, albeit with a high liftover." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "The trunk is enormous too, at 16.2 cu ft., another sedan-grade achievement." -- Autotrader
