2014 Dodge SRT Viper Interior Review

Note: This interior review was created when the 2014 Dodge SRT Viper was new.

Scorecard

Interior: 7.6

Automotive journalists agree that the 2014 SRT Viper’s interior has excellent build quality and high-end materials that stack up well against those found in other luxury sports cars. The Viper also earns praise for its supportive seats, though some reviewers say that a low roof limits outward visibility. The 2014 Viper has a big trunk for the class and test drivers like the Viper’s Uconnect infotainment system, which features user-friendly menus and a large display.

  • "The attention to detail in this new GTS is remarkable. Utilizing fine materials such as hand-wrapped leather with contrast stitching, this Viper's interior ends up looking as though it was lifted from a Ferrari 599 Superamerica - there's an entirely new level of refinement inside." -- Left Lane News
  • "The biggest changes are to the coupe's comfort and everyday livability: Both have been enhanced significantly compared with the bare-bones, engine-strapped-to-a-chassis Viper models of years past. In fact, you'd be forgiven for using the term ‘luxurious’ to describe certain upscale versions of this Viper." -- AutoTrader
  • "The cockpit is otherwise thoughtfully padded in the right places with high-quality stitching 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 (2013)

Seating

The 2014 SRT Viper seats two and comes with power-adjustable pedals. The Viper GTS has six-way power-adjustable leather seats with Alcantara inserts. Some reviewers report that a low seat height can make entry and exit difficult, and that outward visibility is compromised by a low roof. A few critics write that the cabin feels snug, but most agree that the Viper has firm, well-bolstered seats that are comfortable and spacious enough for people taller than 6 feet.

  • "A week with the Viper reveals a couple spots in need of some tweaking. One would be the uncomfortable, tightly-bolstered Sabelt performance seats, which at least feature lightweight shells and anchoring for multipoint safety harnesses." -- Left Lane News
  • "Taller drivers will physically fit, but they'll typically have to recline the seatback so far back that visibility can be a concern. Even for the averaged-sized driver, the view outward is a bit like peeking through a mail slot, thanks to the unusually low roof line." -- Edmunds
  • "The Viper's 2-seat cabin remains tight (some optimistic types might dub it ‘cozy’) but is a major step up from past models. 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 (2013)

Interior Features

The 2014 SRT Viper comes standard with a nine-speaker audio system, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, satellite radio, automatic climate control, push-button start and a Uconnect infotainment system with an 8.4-inch touch screen. Available features include navigation, a rearview camera and a Harman Kardon audio system.

Some auto writers report that the Viper’s Uconnect infotainment system is one of easiest to use on the market, and most agree that it offers a large touch screen and intuitive controls.  Automotive experts also say it responds well to voice commands, and some like the straightforward controls on the Viper’s center stack.

  • "The SRT Viper is meant for driving, not fidgeting with electronics. Fortunately, the Viper's Uconnect system is perhaps the most user-friendly infotainment platform available. From its massive 8.4-inch touch screen to its conversational voice-recognition software, Uconnect is the new standard in vehicle connectivity." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "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 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 (2013)
  • "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 (2013)

Cargo

The 2014 SRT Viper has 14.7 cubic feet of trunk space, which is more cargo space than many sports cars offer. Still, critics note that the Viper’s cabin doesn’t have a lot of storage spaces for small items.

  • "Interior storage is limited, but the team at SRT installed as many small bins and pockets as they could. On the other hand, 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 (2013)
