2017 Dodge Charger Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2017 Dodge Charger was new.

Scorecard

Interior: 8.1

The 2017 Dodge Charger features mostly quality cabin materials and an appealing look, though the lower trims feature cheap upholstery and hard plastic trim pieces. The interior offers plenty of room and a good number of features to make the space both comfortable and functional.

  • "Inviting, comfortable and functional, the interior of the 2017 the Dodge Charger is a pleasant place to spend time." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "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 (2015)
  • 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 (2015)

Seating 

The 2017 Charger seats five 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, a heated steering wheel, power-adjustable pedals, and performance seats with added side support are available. The front seats offer nice comfort for long road trips, and the rear bench seat will handle three grown-ups. The window pillars, however, impair visibility.

  • "Front seats are comfortable for long trips, the rear bench will handle three adults and the entire well-designed presentation is also easy on the eyes." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "There's a vast amount of shoulder room in the 2016 Charger, and the front seats are as roomy as you'd expect in a full-size sedan. … The mix of leather and suede upholstery in certain models is appealing and improves support during spirited driving. Those in the rear also enjoy a wealth of hip- and shoulder room, though the massive tunnel for the driveshaft to the rear wheels compromises rear footwell space, and headroom can be tight for taller occupants." -- Edmunds (2016)
  • "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 (2015)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2017 Charger include three USB ports, an SD card reader, a six-speaker audio system, and a new Uconnect infotainment system with Bluetooth and a 5-inch touch screen. Available features include push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, rear cross traffic alert, and an upgraded Uconnect system with voice recognition, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite radio, HD Radio, navigation, an 8.4-inch touch screen, Siri Eyes Free, and Uconnect Access, which features several apps and an on-demand Wi-Fi hot spot.

Critics deem the new fourth-generation Uconnect infotainment system one of the best on the market, especially praising its new phone-style navigation features. They also appreciate its user-friendly design with large “virtual” buttons.

  • "The new fourth generation of Uconnect is one of the best automotive infotainment systems and one of the easiest to use. Maps are supplied by Garmin, and the Bluetooth connects your phone almost instantaneously. The new system's larger 8.4-inch screen also allows for phone-style navigation gestures like pinch and swipe." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The aesthetics are further enhanced by some retro-inspired touches here and there, including the T-handle shifter for the automatic transmission. We're also fans of the 8.4-inch touchscreen interface, as it has large 'virtual' buttons, an intuitive layout and even quicker responses for 2017. Even the smaller 5-inch screen in the base SE model works well." -- 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 (2015)

Cargo

The Charger offers 16.5 cubic feet of trunk space, which is average for the class. Split-folding rear seats make it easier to haul larger items, but the Charger’s trunk lid lifts high, which makes closing the trunk a hassle for shorter individuals. There is abundant interior storage.

  • The Charger's 16.5-cubic-foot trunk capacity is respectable for this class. All models feature folding rear seatbacks, so it's possible to carry bulkier items if you don't need the rear seats for passengers." -- Edmunds (2016)
  • "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 (2015)
  • "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)
