Scorecard

Interior: 7.9

Critics say the interior of the 2013 SRT Viper is well-built, with first-rate materials and clear gauges. They note that power-adjustable pedals make it easy to find a comfortable driving position, and that the Viper’s supportive seats are roomy enough for people taller than 6 feet. The Viper also earns praise for its tech features, which include a standard infotainment system that auto writers say is easy to use.

  • "Unlike the car it replaces, the cockpit is thoughtfully padded in the right places, features high-quality stitching where it can be seen and felt, and has a dashboard that is highly legible and functional with a configurable digital instrument cluster." -- Edmunds
  • "The Viper's all-new interior is a substantial improvement with its clean, modern and uncluttered instrument panel. The fit, finish and materials are impeccable, and the lower center console adds much-needed elbow room." -- MSN Autos
  • "Aside from the welcome improvement in ergonomics, all major interior surfaces are now swathed with high-grade materials and upholstery (standard models feature seats covered in ballistic nylon with leather inserts while full leather is standard on the GTS models)." -- Autoblog
  • "The Viper's interior is far more luxurious, well-crafted, and better equipped than ever before." -- Popular Mechanics

Seating

The 2013 SRT Viper seats two and comes standard with power-adjustable pedals. Leather upholstery is optional, and the Viper GTS comes with six-way power-adjustable leather seats with Alcantara inserts. While some test drivers say that a low seat height can make entry and exit difficult, most agree that 2013 Viper has firm, well-bolstered seats that are comfortable and spacious enough for people taller than 6 feet. Additionally, some note that power-adjustable pedals make it easy for most drivers to find a comfortable seating position.

  • "Thanks to added interior space, revised seats and adjustable pedals, the new Viper will fit nearly anybody. Incidentally, anchors for three- or six-point racing harnesses are standard for those who are so inclined. Regardless of trim, the racing-sourced shell-type seats are firm but supportive." -- Edmunds
  • "Slide into the new Viper, and it's hard to believe it's just three model years removed from its predecessor. Soft leather and vinyl replace hard plastic. The thin, firm seats (supplied by Sabelt, which also counts Ferrari among its customers) immediately feel more comfortable and are more adjustable." -- Car and Driver
  • "Just getting yourself into the cabin still requires some dexterity, as you must lift your legs over the wide doorsill and then plunk your torso into the low seat." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "My six-foot, two-inch frame found the new seats snug and comfortable, without the slightest feeling of being cramped (there was even room for my helmeted head... but just barely)." -- Autoblog

Interior Features

The 2013 SRT Viper comes standard with automatic climate control, push-button start, a nine-speaker audio system, a Uconnect infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touch screen, Bluetooth and satellite radio. A rearview camera, navigation and two Harman Kardon audio systems are available.

Critics note that features like a large touch-screen display make the Viper feel like a modern sports car, and many say that the controls on the steering wheel and center stack are easy to use. Additionally, most reviewers agree that the Viper’s Uconnect infotainment system is straightforward, with clear menus with user-friendly virtual buttons.

  • "The center stack controls are logical, and we particularly like the large central display screen and its easy-to-use virtual buttons and menus." -- Edmunds
  • "The primary and steering-mounted controls are neat and precise, but the various settings and menus are overwhelming at first." -- MSN Autos
  • "The information display in the gauge cluster that displays your performance stats is reconfigurable, but it's the standard 8.4-inch touchscreen in the center of the dash that brings the Viper into the 21st century." -- Popular Mechanics
  • "Lastly, the Viper has finally entered the twenty-first century with a full suite of modern electronics that includes digital displays, infotainment and driving aids." -- Autoblog

Cargo

Reviewers report that the 2013 Viper’s cabin could use more storage space for small items, though some note that its trunk is remarkably roomy. There’s 14.7 cubic feet of space, which is more than most cars in the class offer.

  • "Storage is limited, but as many flocked bins and cubbies as would fit are a vast improvement over the previous car's utter lack of interior storage. The trunk is surprisingly spacious, measuring just over 14 cubic feet." -- Edmunds
  • "Cargo space, too, is stingy, so you'll have to plan your shopping trip accordingly." -- Kelley Blue Book
